Re: Thoughts on David Sappelt
For reference, here are the unweighted averages of qualified OFs:
AVG OBP SLG OPS wOBA ISO
LF .284 .352 .455 .806 .354 .171
CF .276 .340 .432 .772 .342 .157
RF .279 .354 .457 .812 .355 .178
Suffice it to say that the difference is pretty small. Everybody is expected to hit these days. If you're south of .750, you better be an excellent fielder if you want job security. Even CFs need to take a few walks and have a bit of pop.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
