2010 Minor League Park Multipliers

The original data that these were derived from was provided by Jeff Sackmann of Minor League Splits and Brew Crew Ball.  Please support Jeff’s sites or I’ll have to mine this data myself next year, which will give me a gigantic headache and make me sad.

This year, I’ve started using runs created instead of runs for the run factors.  I always was pretty sure that the RC factor would predict future R factors better than actual R factors, but I didn’t want to switch until I did the work to verify it.  Three-Year factors are weighted 8/5/4.

These are compared to their respective leagues, right? So if Bakersfield and Beloit each have a run factor of 1.02, Bakersfield is being compared to Lancaster, etc. and Beloit to Peoria, etc., right?
   2. Dan Szymborski Posted: September 25, 2010 at 09:11 PM (#3648460)
Correct.
   3. Der-K and the statistical werewolves. Posted: September 26, 2010 at 01:36 AM (#3648542)
Thanks again, Dan.
Incidentally, why not list rookie league factors?
   4. Dingbat_Charlie Posted: September 26, 2010 at 04:51 PM (#3648727)
This is great. Minor League Splits is a tremendous resource.
   5. Johnny Sycophant-Laden Fora Posted: September 27, 2010 at 05:09 PM (#3649556)
These are "multipliers" right?

So since PCL average was 5.22 r/g, the average team playing half their games in Albuquerque would score 6.42
so at 6.09 the Isotopes were actually a below average scoring team- while leading the league in runs? (Possible- the Rockies managed that "feat" a few time in the pre-humidor daze)
   6. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: September 27, 2010 at 05:18 PM (#3649570)
Yes, they're multipliers, not factors.

Dan answered #3 two years ago:
I don't do the Instructional Leagues - when you combine the short season with the ridiculously high roster turnover, you get something I don't really want to touch. Same problem with the short seasons in the higher NY-Penn and Northwest Leagues, but their more stable rosters and higher level just barely gets me to do those.

Dan, what park changes did you account for? (Ex: Winston-Salem is in a new facility.)

Context - here's league R/G (game, not 9inn) and ERA levels of 2010:

AL  4.47 4.15
NL  4.36 4.06
-------------
IL  4.51 4.15
PCL 5.22 4.79 
-------------
EL  4.63 4.21
SL  4.52 4.00
TL  4.48 3.99
-------------
Cal 5.21 4.58
Car 4.53 3.92
Fsl 4.18 3.68
-------------
Mwl 4.72 4.13
Sal 4.54 3.82
-------------
NYP 4.49 3.80

Weird not having MLB not above AAA in terms of scoring context.

Weird not having MLB not above AAA in terms of scoring context.


Until 1993/94 AAA (especially PCL) was always above- so to me its been "weird" that the MLB run context has been higher
   9. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: September 27, 2010 at 09:31 PM (#3649780)
Yeah, but that was a long time ago.
