Birds aren't making this easy...
I'm not sure exactly how B-Ref calculates their park factors, but I suspect that there is something wrong with their numbers. Right now, 22 out of the 30 teams have a team OPS+ under 100, and only 8 are 100 or higher! The idea that over two-thirds of the teams have below average offenses doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me. I suspect that they haven't yet fully adjusted to account for the new lower-offensive era that we're clearly now in.
100 is the average without pitchers, but the team numbers all have pitcher hitting in them.
