I'm not sure how that is even possible.
Teams with the Card's OPS last year scored about 80 runs less than they did.
They are going to have to hit quite abit better than they did last year if their RISP regresses to a normal level. Looking back over the last few years, teams with the same amount of runs as the Cards had, OPS'ed about 40 points higher.
I don't think you understand how much the .330 BA with RISP affected the run scoring.
And they lost Beltran.
