What do the error bars look like? The graph suggests that a little more than an additional 1.5 players had a power spike during PEDs era versus the golden and balanced eras. I'm just wondering if there is an actual statistically significant difference.
We know alot of other factors were at play during '94-'04 as well. It just doesn't look like that big of an effect based upon the graph.
Also, on a related note, i'm not sure if the way park effects are normalized decreases noise or adds noise. Were not really there yet concerning park factors.
