Sportsnet: Shorting the Long Ball
#5
Steve Phillips of all people actually framed this topic in an intelligent way today over at TSN. Essentially saying, Mark Trumbo had 667 plate appearances last season. 47 of those ended up as home runs. That leaves 620 PAs where something else happened. Or a whopping 93% of his times to the plate.

That's a lot of time for a player with poor plate discipline to chip away at the value of the long balls he hits. Not to mention the weak base running and defense that also contributes to WAR.
