Did you ever wonder why Runs Squared effectively estimates a team's record - and future performance? A+ 0.6220 or more
Mathematically, the Runs2 logic is quite consistent with a binomial distribution. A 0.5625 0.6219
Something to think about: About the runs in baseball are a function of the game itself (rules, conditions, etc.). B 0.5189 0.5624
Runs2 amplifies runs in a way that very closely matches adjusted runs*, and it's easier to use. C 0.4812 0.5188
Here are both systems for 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007- as well two of the most "extreme" seasons of the D 0.4376 0.4811
twentieth century, 1930 and 1968. F 0.4375 or less
Using Adjusted Runs* vs Runs Squared to estimate wins.    
*Adjusted runs = Actual Runs minus the average RPG per team, per game, in any given season.
