Hmmm our leagues has voted to change AVG to OBP. OPS would give too much value bump up for power hitters no?

If all your other categories are std 5x5, then yes.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I did a league once where we used OBP instead of AVE and SLG instead of HR. It was pretty entertaining. Just throwin' that out there...

Agreed.

I like using OBP over AVE because in the SABR age it is clear which of those two is a better indicator.

But call me a traditionalist when it comes to HR over SLG. The joy of watching/listening to a game and hearing your guy hit that HR and know you just added to your total is something special. I'm not sure I want to wait to figure out how his home run impacts another ratio stat.

Of course it is complicated by the fact that R and RBI are also incremented with the home run, so you could argue the joy of the HR is still there. But I don't really want to lose that stat.

:-D Hmmm. maybe we should have a thread where we debate some totally different 5x5, using other stats, including say, plate appearances? :-D
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium
