Because Pujols' 20 RBI advantage is nowhere near as valuable as Bonds' .100+ OBP advantage. In every other category they are extremely comparable.

That's cool. I just disagree about the amount that it changes his value.

In an OPS league Bonds is your man. Not even close, IMO. The only reason for pause is Bond's knee problems. But then again, Pujols has issues with his foot.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.

the man had a 600 OBP!!! i guess very few people now how unhuman and ridiculious that is. if you have a 420 OBP your among the leaders in your league, he had a 600!!! throw in a 360 average and 40 plus homers and moises hitting with him, i would take the gamble on his injury cause teams r gonna pitch to him more so loook out forMORE homers if hes healthy, but this in a 6x6 league, i dont touch him in a 5x5...


of course i hate the guy and i refuse to mention his name...


Danny is 100% correct...and by the way I hate Bonds also, and refuse to mention his name ;-D

I don't think it really changes his value all that much, but then again I think Bonds is very much underrated in fantasy leagues because of the "low" RBI total. I would take him at #5 in a heartbeat in a 5X5 league, when you add in a category that he completely dominates like OBP to the mix (especially in a H2H league where he wins points by himself some weeks) he has enough value to be right there at #1. Its not a slam-dunk #1 by any means though.

3-year average

R HR RBI SB BA OBP
Bonds 119 45 100 7 0.357 0.571
Pujols 129 41 124 4 0.334 0.412
