How does onbase percentage change your view of rankings. I have the third overall pick and I'm thinking Helton might be a better pick than Soriano, Vlad and Beltran. Am I wrong?

I really think 3-7 is all on how you want your team to be built. Todd Helton could easily be better than Soriano at the end of the year.

It really comes down to your league rosters. If you league takes alot of MI's Soriano is still worth the 2 overall. Remember that although Helton has a high OBA so do most other 1b's (first basemen tend to walk more than other positions). So you don't lose that many walks by not taking Helton (Klesko add's a .100points to his avg. as well). Vlad and Beltran also have good OBA's. That being said with OBA being a cat. Helton is worth a pick in that area.

Check out

http://www.rototimes.com/index.php?spor ... ojectionsd

to compare the two differences. You can run two seperate windos and choose runs on one and OBP on the other (along with your other cat's).

Players like Bonds and Helton increase in value when using OBP.

I don't agree with all of rototimes projections but at least it's a good measuring stick between the two cat's.
