OPS - MLB
The question coming into this year was whether offensive numbers would continue to stagnate or would actually get significantly worse. This shows that hitting has actually gotten much worse from just one year ago. My assumption going into 2015 is that the OPS numbers will be pretty close to 2014, but we'll have to wait and see.
I'm sure that the league would like to see some more runs scored, but I don't know what could be done. A combination of factors, including steroid testing, advanced shifts and bullpens full of overpowering arms, mean that hitters will continue to be overmatched for years to come. The only question is how bad it will get. It's very difficult to predict the long term, but I think next year will look a lot like this year.
