Player A has a slash line of .300/.330/.450, and in 500 PA, ends up with 21 W, 479 AB's, 97 1B, 32 2B, 5 3B and 10 HR.
Based on your results above, it adds up to 97.98 runs.
Player B has a slash line of .200/.330/.450, and in 500 PA, ends up with 81 W, 419 AB, 40 1B, 11 2B, 5 3B and 28 HR.
It adds up to 102.81 runs.
Thanks. Nice work. You are much smarter than I.
However, if I were as smart as you, I could come up with a slash line that would make the slap hitter more effective. My main point is that if guy gets only singles and is able to get the same slash line as a guy with lots of walks and HR's, the singles hitter would be more productive. However, the slash lines wouldn't look like the ones used in this example.
