You are saying HR/F data doesn't apply to the minor leagues. Which is ridiculous of course, the average is going to be lower than the 11% that it is in the majors, but there is some average which everyone will regress towards. Do the principles of BABIP not apply to the minors either? They aren't "major league ideas", they're principles of baseball. After reading your reasoning I find it hard to believe that you've ever thought about why HR/F wouldn't translate to the minors other than just now as you tried to refute my point.
