Current era Batters May be Worth A Look Again

Average OPS scores have been plummeting for years, mostly due to declining power #s.  No idea what that could be from (wink, wink).  There is even a chance no batter reaches 40 home runs.

For ATB this is important information.  As we all know, DMB compares a player to his peers of the era to determine how good they will pan out.  The lower the offensive season on average, the better chance a great batter will stand out.

This year, Mike Trout looks to be the best choice, by I do miss his .430 OBP!
