That being said, I also don't mind "running out the clock" when possible becaue a pro season isn't about that 1 game. You need to make sure you don't wear yourself out for no reason, refrain from injury, etc.
I guess it's not the "right thing" or the "wrong thing" to keep racking up runs. I guess I just found it interesting that the 3 other major sports seem to let up more. Still, the point about negatively affecting stats in baseball pretty much sums up a good answer for me.
