â†µSo, knowing this made Morgan’s reaction to Jon Miller bringing up Jim Edmonds’ OPS on Sunday night all the more hilarious: â†µ â†µ
â†µNow, it would be presumptive and unfair for me to say that Mr. Morgan has no clue what OPS is, but I’m gonna go ahead and assume that anyway. At the least, he seems to be disgusted by Miller’s mere mention of this statistic. A statistic, which we should point out, that is one of the best measurements of a player’s offensive effectiveness considering it analyzes both their ability to reach base and hit for power. Unlike Morgan’s favorite stat, RBI, which, like wins, is a situational statistic that has as much to do with the ability of the rest of the team as it does with the individual player.â†µ
