The conventional wisdom is that power is down across the majors. The only explanation I've seen is that it's due to the post-PEDs era. Have any other explanations emerged?
Are the current leaders, Chris Davis, Cabrera, Encarnacion(!), Alvarez and Goldschmidt, hangers-on from the previous era or the true talent that shows when the others drop away in the post-PEDs era?
If you're looking at a player who all evidence indicates is a good citizen, and his power numbers are down, and you say, don't worry, power numbers are down across the leagues in the post-PEDs era, what are the implications of that?
I wonder if there are other explanations as well.
