It's hard to quantify that data alone, especially comparing different positions, but it doesn't take much math to know that the defense of that differential probably wipes out most or all of the 100 point OPS.
If we look at defense too, as it does matter, there's no way anyone can look at their seasons and derive at a conclusion that Francisco was much better.
Considering offensive contributions from 3B are much more valuable than offense from LF, that helps close the defensive gap...
