Ouch talk about damning with faint praise. Markakis will do better because some of his outs will become singles because of better luck.
I’m not sure a bearish+bulishl dual articles makes much sense in the case of players that have declined to such a degree as Markakis. It gives the false sense of equivalence for the two positions. It’s kinda like putting an evolutionary biologist in a debate with a creationist.
Haha, nah, it’s not totally like that. It’s more like “his power couldn’t have completely disappeared the way it has the last 2 years, could it???” And also a reminder not to forget about the steals that do have value, but most fantasy owners likely are ignoring.

Correct me if I’m wrong ,but original DIPS theory posits that pitcher BABIP is luck-derived, but not hitter-BABIP.
