Wow, the Orioles are like 28-7 in one run games, and have a bottom five record in games decided by three or more runs.

I'll dig up the studies later, but basically there is very little season to season correlation in winning one run games. For reasons I mentioned before, this makes tons of logical sense too. When you win games by 3+ runs, you're insulated from the bad bounce, the poorly located pitch, or the bad call from immediately costing you the game.
