This is my first Fanpost here but I have loved lurking for years now.
I ran across an interesting statistic and would like to hear everyone here's thoughts on it. According to Fangraphs Troy Tulowitzki has a .373 road wOBA between 2009-12, Matt Kemp has a .373 road wOBA during the same stretch, can anyone tell me why Tulowitzki has a 119wRC+ on the road, but that Matt Kemp has a 136wRC+ during the same time?
I asked Tango who responded with
@Pogue009 I agree it's wrong though.
This Stat made me look at the team stats for example Texas has a .320 road wOBA since 2002 as a team good for an 88wRC+, San Diego has a .321 road wOBA good for a 100wRC+ on the road. Texas shares a division with LAA, OAK, SEA during that stretch three severe pitchers parks, San Diego has LAD and SF which lean pitcher, but COL and AZ are two extreme run environments. I would argue that the current wRC+ formula punishes teams that play in high run environments when they go on the road. Can someone tell me if that is accurate and if so can we please put Larry Walker in the HOF??
