    {Parker did a writeup a while back about how Mauer benefited from having a runner on base. Specifically, he had a high BABIP when runners were on base and he pulled balls, the theory being that the defense holding runners on 1st opened a hole on the right side for the ground balls he rolls over on. } QUOTE FROM WILLIHAMMER

    This is one of the reasons that I prefer Mauer in the 3rd spot in the order, since he will have more batters on base for him in that spot rather than the 2nd spot over the course of the season. Sorry, this has nothing to do with this thread.

    Fine.

    I don't believe that fielding percentage is the sole measure to define anything for hitters.

    babip in play is a contrast stat. It tells you almost nothing out of context. Depending on the context it can tell you a whole lot of things.

    bapip in play is a redundant usage.
