This was a really good article. Interesting that the Rangers kind of bucked the trend and were the exception to the idea that hitting has no correlation with winning.. I think some of that is probably MSG scorer bias which is notorious among all the advanced stats writers.
Agreed, he's great. Regrets if I missed it, but what part of the analysis are the NYR the exception to? His point is that you do better when you get out-hit than you do when out-hitting the other team. That was true with respect to the NYR as well, both in home and road games.
