    Default Would Someone Kindly Define OPS+ For Me?




    I stumbled on OPS all by myself in the late '70's (I called it "OBSL") and have routinely used it since then to evaluate offensive production, but I have no clue what "OPS+" is.

A 100 OPS+ is league average, and each point up or down is one percentage point above or below league average. In other words, if a player had a 90 OPS+ last season, that means their OPS was 10% below league average.

    Since OPS+ adjusts for league and park effects, itís possible to use OPS+ to compare players from different years and on different teams.
