I'd be curious to see the average velocity of their hits...even just of the singles...and compare it to the average in other series. It would be interesting to represent luck another way than just BABIP.

When the other team scores 7 runs and you win; that's probably what I consider lucky?

I don't remember who it was, but I remember someone intentionally punching it down the 3rd base line?

We need to bring Morin. As in, more relievers in.

I think that was Calhoun. A good example of not luck just because of low exit velocity.

On the other hand, at least the Twins didn't have 18 hits but were only 3-17 w/RISP.

Which tells you something about luck. According to some, the Angels willingly hit the ball wherever they pleased, yet the moment it became a scoring situation, that purposeful hitting vaporized into thin air.

Why the discrepancy?
