WRC+ vs. HR's

Today's post is a similar to yesterdays but with some cooler bells and whistles. I plotted WRC+ against HR's for qualified batters in 2018 but I ran a couple cool aesthetics. The first is that each point is color coordinated by the team of which he played for. (Using Player Name was just too much clutter.) I also added a size aesthetic filtered by the players total WAR, so the bigger the dot the more WAR that player had over the course of the year. Hopefully will be able to use these features more to do more cool stuff in the near future. As far as the actual graph, we can see that there is correlation between WRC+ and number of HR's hit, obviously nothing shocking.


Oh and by the way, the orange dot is Mike Trout ;)
