I didn't really want to get sucked into this, but I disagree with this. A run scored is a run scored...regardless of where it happened. Both teams are playing by the same rules in the same ballpark. A run is a run. One may happen with less frequency in one park compared to another...but it doesn't make it more or less valuable because the opposition is also playing in that same ballpark under the same circumstances.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
