I was re-reading my previous post and wondered about a disparity in the batting numbers of Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout. Specifically it's about On-Base Plus Slugging (OPS) and OPS+ (adjusted to a player's park).
Among American Conference batting leaders:
1. Cabrera (DET) .999
2. Trout (LAA) .963
1. Trout (LAA) 171
2. Cabrera (DET) 165
They switched places.
OPS home/road split:
Trout is more consistent and better on the road.
The big disparity for Cabrera is SLG: .692/.529. Trout's SLG: .586/.544. Cabrera has a big drop in SLG on the road: .163.
Cabrera hit 28 home runs (HR) at home in 295 at bats (AB) and only 16 on the road in 327 AB. AB/HR: 10.5/20.4.
Cabrera likes home cooking or his home park in Detroit. Either way, maybe a little too much. Another plus for Mike Trout.
