I don't think what you're suggesting there is at all unreasonable, though I'd still take the under on a .768 OPS.
In any event, I'd say a 100 point drop in OPS w/ RISP is a pretty significant regression. That's going to cost them quite a few runs, no?
I think we can all agree that the Cards are likely to:
1. Regress significantly from 2013
2. Be among the best, if not the best, hitting team with RISP in 2014.
