Re: Can someone explain ....

IsoP = isolated power, SLG-AVG.

It's usually written that way if it is introduced alongside IsoD, which is isolated plate discipline, or OBP-AVG.

Is higher better or does that simply reflect that someone doesn't hit for average as well as power? Ex a 200/200/ 500/ 700 guy would be an ISO 300 but a 300/400/500/900 guy would only be an ISO of 200. I assume Dunn and Wily Mo had a much higher ISO than Votto. Is it a stat simply to be used in conjunction with other numbers?

It basically just lets you know how often a players hit goes for extra bases. Really doesn't carry much weight on its own.

It's not an aggregate measure of production in any real sense, so don't think of it from a value standpoint. It's most useful as a skill estimate. __________________ Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
