I'm curious how many more wins the A's could have expected with a 1.101 OPS from the 3 spot than .831. Yes, I want the statgeeks help on this one. I'm guessing 4 more wins this year. Also, is there any way to convince the rest of us that the rest of the A's lineup (especially the 2,4-5-6 guys) would have put up better numbers for themselves with #3 getting on base .430 instead of .378? Could that have resulted in another 3-4 wins?
My first fanpost. It's already terrible.
I started this season hoping for .500 ball, and would that have been enough?
