• Top 25 Career Best Post-Season OPS – Min. 150 AB

    Posted by on October 15th, 2012 · Comments (2)

    These stats are through yesterday’s games.  It’s the “Top 25″ best career post-season OPS totals for all players with at least 150 post-season At Bats.  The data was pulled off this query.  Of course, you have to remember that OPS is relative (and this is not OPS+ which is adjusted for era).  So, if someone played in an era when offense was up, he would naturally have a high OPS as compared to someone who played in an era where offense was depressed.  Also, it’s easier for a player today to collect post-season At Bats faster today since there are more rounds of the playoffs compared to the past.

      @ Corey:
      Just goes to show you how good he was in the post-season because he came to the Yankees and then caved under the pressure :-)
