Astros' OPS is most unlucky in baseball


J.C. Bradbury lists the most lucky and unlucky teams for OPS this season. Luckiest? Twins. Unluckiest? Astros. Bradbury uses the PrOPS formula to calculate expected OPS. Astros' expected OPS is .720, or 122 points more than the actual team OPS. Bradbury also has a list of luckiest and unluckiest individual players using PrOPS. Hunter Pence is the unluckiest player in baseball, since his OPS is expected to be .927 rather than the actual .705. Carlos Lee and Pedro Feliz are also among the top 30 whose PrOPS exceed actual OPS. Bradbury says this doesn't guarantee "reversion" but it is a tool to examine the possibility.
