Relative OPS??

Doesn't the OPS+ used at baseballreference also include a park adjustment when finding the league averages?

The minus one is because you are adding two numbers that are both based on a 100 point scale and then you wish to have a final number on a 100 point scale as well.
Each part of the equation is seperate and then added together. So a player who is 8% better then league average in OBP would have a rel OBP of 108 and if he was 15% better in SLG then he would have a 115. Add the two together and you get 223. Subtract 100 and you get 123. Now one thing to remember is that OPS+ is not a % stat. Meaning that player's OPS+ isn't 23% better then average, his components % when added come to 23% but that doesn't mean he is 23% betten then average.
For example let say the lg average is .300 in OBP and .400 in SLG, and player A has .350 and .450. His OPS is 14% better then average, but his components are 17% and 13% better respectively. SO his OPS+ would not be 114 but 129.
