Alex has, so far, written 26,813 comments and this was the latest, on Ryan Zimmerman:

Tied with Mookie Betts for the fifth highest Brls/PA %: 9.9.

His highest exit velocity was 110.8, a shade higher than Mookies (110.6). His average exit velocity was 92.6, a shade higher than Mookie's (92.3). His average homer travelled 406 feet, six feet further than Mookie's.

To say that he hit the ball as well or better than Mookie is a stretch -- after all, it's a much smaller sample size -- but it's fair to say he had an unlucky BABIP.
