Something wrong or statistical anomaly?

Subtitle:  Is Hurdle costing us too many runs?

I was looking over at the team stats and noticed that the rockies are 8th in the NL in OPS, but 14th in runs per game.  An even bigger anomaly in the other direction is the Padres who are 15th in OPS (way below everyone but the Cubs), but are 10th in runs scored.  Its possible that these numbers are just anomalous, but a couple of other stats caught my eye...

  1. the rockies are first in sacrifice hits (way to go Clint) by a fairly large margin whereas the Padres are dead last.  Is this a coincidence or is Clint hurting us?  Hard to say, but I think it is interesting.
  2.  In fairness, however, the Padres have been really good in the stolen base department this year (39 of 42 attempts successful), so maybe this may explain part of it.
