BtBS: Three True Outcomes Throughout History

The Oakland Athletics have seen more than 200 more pitches than any other team in baseball through the first few weeks of the season and have the league’s highest walk rate at 10.8 percent. The Houston Astros have struck out a ridiculous 27 percent of the time, leading the Majors by far and looking good enough to obliterate the MLB record. The Boston Red Sox are second in each of these categories. And the Atlanta Braves are going yard in five percent of all of their plate appearances (not five percent of their fly balls…five percent of ALL plate appearances). That would also be the highest rate ever by a sizable margin.

Yes, as has been espoused ad nausem, we know the Three True Outcomes are on the rise. In a serious way. But what has mostly been looked at is the player level, trying to find out if guys like Adam Dunn could be the rare 50% TTO player.  Today I want to have a look at whether these teams, performing at extremes in our current small sample, have any sort of claim to being the Three True Outcome-iest team of all time.
