Hardball Times: The Royals and “Anti-Three True Outcomes”

There is a definite trend line/correlation between a team’s homer and walk percentages and its overall winning percentage. [...]

[The 2014 Royals HR+BB rate of 8.0% is] right there with the lowest total of any team over the past 40-plus years. You’ll also notice that few, if any, teams have been able to win even at a .550 clip without having a nine-percent homer-plus-walk rate. These Royals need only look at similarly walk and homer-challenged teams to realize their chances of a winning season are poor
