I have huge respect for nathan but I don’t think he can be considered outcome neutral on the ball topic since he was hired by mlb.

Nobody ever said that the ball was juiced before this season and that it is the only factor. Hitters do elevate more but that is likely fueled by the ball change in 2015. Hitters who previously had warning track power now can clear the fence but to learn that takes time. That is why homer rates continue to go up without a new new ball.
