I shouldn’t have doubted you. I looked it up, and Puck reached base at a .375 clip in ’88. Stunning. Will always love you, Kirby, but my God, did you swing at everything.

One quick question, why use base OPS and not OPS+ which adjusts for era and offensive environment?

For instance in the age 35 comparison Kirby Puckett had an OPS+ of 130 Killebrew (while his stats were lower) was at 138. This also supports your argument, “…adjusting for the offensive levels of the two eras Killebrew’s age-35 season was arguably even more productive than Puckett’s despite lower raw numbers.”
