Perrotto: Austin Hedges Has One Stat Hard To Ignore (+)



I might be an old man – or at least getting close to it – but I would like to think I understand modern baseball thinking.

Mind you, I don’t always agree with it. But I do understand it.

Batting average has been steadily devalued for over a decade. There is some sense to that notion as on-base percentage and other metrics are better indicators of a hitter’s ability.

However, forgive me for getting a little old school here. I’m a child of the 1970s and batting average mattered back then. If someone hit .300, it meant he was an All-Star-caliber player with no questions asked.
