Similiar to bripat, depth wins games in the regular season. Superstuds win in the playoffs. Top flight hitters are they only people who can hit top flight pitching consistantly. That 70 56 60 60 guy that can do some damage against 73 overall starters never sees those starters in the playoffs. They put together decent regualar season number since they really aren't that much less effective against second tier pitching than the superstuds nut then hit .156 in the playoffs. To hit the top tier pitching you need some guy's with some 90's.
