If you took Doug's chart and you limited the participants to those with certain power hitting levels JF is likely to achieve, you might have something more on point.
For example, limit the group to hitters with 20 homers and 20 doubles per year on average. Fairly modest goals for JF. I think you'd see a different chart. I would venture to guess that hitters with 20 homers and 20 doubles per year have .800 OPS numbers fairly frequently -- even with high K/BB rates.
Some guys with the worst K/BB rates this year are Kevin Kouzmanoff, Mike Jacobs, and Jose Guillen and none of them come close to a .800 OPS. They all have substantial amounts of power.
Players with the highest ISOs all have very good k/bb rates and none have Juans rate.
I dont know if thats what you are asking but just quickly looking at it thats what I come up with.
