Quiz Question: When is a 700 OPS better than a 800 OPS?

I was catching up on the issues of By the Numbers and read the following quote in the the November 2008 issue:

"An OPS of .800 will always generate more runs than an OPS of .700, given the same amount of playing time."

I know the above statement is not always true, but do you?  I want to give out a prize and decided that I the first person to prove that it is false, using math, will get to choose the first team I will study in depth with my new disabled list database.  I know it is not much, but that is all I can really offer.  Hopefully there will be more of these to come in the future.
