  1. That second graph is awful, comparing OBP, AVG, and BABIP like that.

  2. the comparison is against his career and NL avg. The graph was intended to demonstrate that Wright’s outcomes on fly balls this year were pretty fortuitous – far above league average and well above his career average. OBP is probably superfluous information there, if that’s your beef

  3. I believe what he means is that you used a line graph, which is inappropriate for that data set. The line graph makes it seem like you’re attempting to show some sort of progression from AVG -> OBP -> BABIP, but that doesn’t make sense in context.

  4. The old Citi Field was much to blame for Wright’s change of performance in 2009-2011.

    Now that they changed the dimensions Wright had a great season. I think he’ll hit more homers next year.

  5. On second look, I actually have no idea what’s going on in that graph. *confused*

  6. Bar graphs clusted in groups of three for each metric would be a lot more clear I think

  7. noted. Changed. Thanks… sometimes it makes perfect sense to me while I’m looking at it in the editor… but you’re all correct.
