The Twins will be better next year

OPS+ is a pretty easy stat to describe, if not calculate. If you look at a players OPS, or On Base % plus Slugging %, OPS + is a relation of that number to league average. 100 is average, anything higher is better than average, and anything below is below average. It’s only an offensive statistic, but it’s easy to break down. When looking at qualified players (i.e. those with...
