Part two of home run decimal series pits Chicago White Sox against Chicago Cubs. This time, it will be Melky Cabrera of the White Sox against Kris Bryant of the Cubs.
As some of you may have read, I recently dissected Home Run Decimal through first half statistics from Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier. While Frazier was not on the White Sox during the half that I analyzed, he is currently a member of the ballclub. This time around, I am going to use a player that is part of the Cubs. He is currently the favorite to win the 2016 National League MVP award, and his name is Kris Bryant.
While I will use a Cubs player in the study, I will also use a White Sox player. Outside of Abreu and Frazier, this player might be the most impactful offensive player on the team. Some might argue Adam Eaton is that guy, however this study will involve Melky Cabrera.
Just as before, I am going to analyze an entire half. I may have looked at two different players first halves before, however this time I am going to use the second half for data usage.
You will see results from Home Run Decimal (HRD) and Decimal Power Average (DPA) for each month.
