WRC+ vs. In Zone Contact

I uploaded a file that has both standard sabermetric statistics and plate discipline stats and have begun to look for any potential correlations or insight. I plotted WRC+ vs In zone contact rate and to be honest I was pretty shocked by the results. There is really no correlation at all, you would almost figure that the more you make contact on swings in the zone the better you would be but apparently not. To me there's probably two main factors in play. Players that prioritize contact may not SLG well enough to be elite so they are perhaps over-emphasizing contact, as well as some players having a healthy amount of swing and miss attempting to get optimal results while ahead in the count. More to follow on this.
