What 6th stat do you guys like the best(Batting)?

I like OPS the most, shows who the real great on base men and sluggers really are. I mean Bonds OPS numbers are staggering.

I haven't been in one with TB, sounds like fun cuz it doesn't devalue triples like one of my other league's does where we have doubles and if you are watching one of your players on your fantasy team and he's digging for third, you have to yell at him to stop and go back to 2nd, which is annoying.

Fielding cats are just not for me... i like avg and ops together or obp and slugging... but obp and ops is just doubling the value of obp... and u don't want Billy Beane laughing at how we all of a sudden value obp more than any other stat now do u? }:-) :-t

When I play with a 6th stat, it's always OPS.

I played in a h2h league with all three and it was too much for me. Generally, if one is struggling, all are struggling, which gets annoying. They're too related to all be in an h2h league unless there's a lot more other cats as well. Just adding one cat, I found TB to be interesting last year, although OBP is a nice addition for a 6x6 league too.

Doubles would probably be my 7th choice (2nd after the 5x5) because it brings back some value to gap-hitters that may be more talented than homerun hitters that normally have more fantasy value.

I like OPS.

A side point: is it possible to change SB to net steals as a cat (ie SB-CS)? I've always thought that might be an idea.

I like doubles+triples (or DT as Sportsline likes to call it). But since Yahoo neglects to include this awesome stat, I would otherwise have to go with OPS.
