  1. Jack,

    I agree about the BIP volatility, but you should note the IFFB% of Reynolds from 2007-2010 in talking about the changes in Reynolds BABIP. His IFFB rate was improving from 2007 until a career low 9% mark in 2009, but its re-spiked this season and given the miniscule xBABIP (.002) of popups, that can really hurt a hitter.

  2. Interestingly, Jack Cust is one of the best hitters in MLB at avoiding popups, although ironically his IFFB rate is actually higher than normal this year.
