One player's home stadium is a hitters' paradise, the other plays in a pitchers' paradise, OPS+ attempts to adjust numbers including park effects.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
