    Singles do not equal Runs

    Singles help very little in generating runs. Extra base hits help much, much more. That may seem obvious, but here's data to show how extreme this difference is. I ran two correlations on 2022 to date team stats. One between runs scored and singles hit. One between runs scored and extra base hits. A correlation is a number between -1 and 1. 1 is a pefrect correlation. There is a 100% direct impact of one stat on the other -1 is an inverse correlation. There is a 100% opposite impact of one stat on the other. 0 is no correlation. There is no impact of one stat on the other. The correlation between singles and runs is .185. This means there is very little correlation between hitting singles and scoring runs. The correlation between extra base hits and runs is .860. This means there is an extremely high correlation between extra base hits and scoring runs. This literally took me 5 minutes to do. I don't understand why a $1B+ franchise doesn't have someone pulling data like this and using it to make decisions about players and coaches.
