In 1996 the Reds OBP was 13 points higher, and the SLG was 33 points higher.
yeah. that's just 2 years worth of data, but for the most part when a team gets on base a lot, and a team hits for power, that team scores a bunch of runs. regardless of how many times they strikeout.
yeah....there's alot of that. A couple times I thought I had a trend (that I might like
), then I'd compare a few other teams and see just the opposite. All in all just not enough solid trend either way...........
