I mean, it makes sense, those that have high batting averages are going to make it pretty far in ranked seasons, so they will get matched up with other great hitters at that rank, therefore the ERAs will be terrible because they are facing other great hitters.
I would tend to agree, but try scoring 10 runs consistently on legend difficulty online (which is the difficulty top players play on most of the time in Ranked because they make WS so quickly). I just played a guy whose average is .260 and ERA is around 3.60 (great for online). I hit about .330 and my ERA is over 5. There were at least 7 balls I hit dead on just above center of PCI that just died. I would just bet you if I was playing someone with a higher ERA, some of those balls don’t die and instead leave the yard.
Just saying, LOTS going on behind the scenes in terms of programming and algorithms.
Nope, you are just throwing out hypotheticals, you can't prove that if you were playing against someone with a higher ERA that the balls would leave, you're just surmising that it would with no actual facts to back it up,
Sometimes RNG is on your side, sometimes it isn't, but it has nothing to do with an opponents ERA, my explanation is correct on why top players have high ERAs, because they play other top players! It's really that simple.
