Just getting back into this great game after some years of absence, and I'm curious why the gb()A/C results are opposite of fb()A/C ?

Example:
gb()A = batter out and runners hold (or double play if forced)
gb()C = runners advance one base

fb()A = runners advance one base
fb()C = runners hold


Is there a reasonable explanation or is it just a quirk I need to get used to? I guess I was just hoping for consistency to make it easier to remember without looking it up each time.

It's how hard the ball is hit. So they are not the opposite at all.

I see. A shallow fly ball where the runners hold and a slow dribbling groundball where the runners advance.

I think I can remember the chart results thinking from that perspective.

Thanks!

In my experience (admittedly limited) you don't get many fly ball-A anyway.

They are pretty rare.
