Statistic Question

Is there a statistic out there that calculated the number of runs a team gives up in the immediate half-inning following a run scored by themselves?

Because if not I would like to calculate it… since the Mets have now given up 18 ERAR (Earned Runs After Runs) in 4 games.

    I don’t think so. I know of some sites that will keep track of how many runs the team scores per inning and then how many runs their opponent scores per inning but if your looking at just runs allowed immediately precedding runs scored, I doubt it.

    While It’s extremely annoying to grab a lead and give it right back to the opposing team, I doubt it’s very telling of anything tho.

    I just feel that it hurts the morale of the players if every time they score a run it seems that the pitching just gives them right back. I know it hurts the Fan’s morale that is for sure!

    It might but I have a feeling that players dont (and cant) think like fans.

    The best example I can think of is a closer. If you are in there to protect a lead, and you blow the lead….say someone hits a game winning HR off you….as a fan, your devastated….as a player tho, you really cant be because you might have to run out there the very next day and shut down the team. If your still thinking about it, your likely to fail again. So players must have short memories.

    So while I believe it might be frustrating, I dont really know whether they dwell on it or not.
