Nice point.....BABIP has flaws for sure...so many factors. To me any player that hits the ball where it's pitched should carry a higher BABIP. Almost every Cardinal hitter does that. The Reds are often pull happy with a good portion of their lineup.
Hit it hard where it's pitched is a more successful approach than hit my picture on the scoreboard.
