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.
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.
