I understand how OPS+ works. My point is it shouldn't be such a factor that it places one player ahead of another player who has unquestionably outperformed him. Jay plays in a park that gives up more HR, but Pence plays in a park that allows for more triples, and probably doubles as well. It works both ways. A ballpark can account for some differences statistically, but it doesn't expain every statistical edge Bruce has over Pence.
