BABIP: Separating fact from fiction - Beyond the Box Score

I don't get where he came up with his one conclusion going into this. He seemed to think that .300 babip for a hitter is standard, and is mistaking dips theory with babip. Has anyone, anywhere of any repute, ever claimed that babip for hitters is static or predictable?

Fun thing, by this methodology, Pujols is hitting worse than expected.
