“Clint Hurdle said nine of 10 balls up the middle used to be hits — and now, two of 10 are,” said Detroit Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski, referring to the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates. “It just shows how different it is.”

Shouldn't BABIP be going down? I know 9 of 10 to 2 of 10 (balls up the middle, as hits) is an over-statement, but shouldn't there be a pretty dramatic drop if this is really working?
I've argued that it's ISO that is going to take the hit, for every guy who doesn't adjust like McCann, you will get a Matt Adams who just exploits the crap out of it.

That could be true too, but if it is effective, then the effectiveness has to show up somewhere.
