Re: How inconsistent is Jay Bruce?
The better players may have the largest discrepancy. It may be that Bruce feasts on bad pitching but us just normal vs. good pitching. I haven't seen the stats. How does he rank vs. other hitters vs. good pitching?
I don't know. They didn't get into that. I don't know if it's true that the better players tend to have the largest discrepancy, but there were a couple of big names who hit excellent pitching almost as well as bad pitching -- Jeter and Votto.
I believe the sample size was the 2012 season.
