Which guys gain value in an OBP league?

Postby Maris09 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 5:08 pm

I know Adam Dunn will.

I see that Mark Reynolds had an OBP that wasn't too far off a lot of guys.
His OBP in 2 of the last 3 years was .349 which doesn't seem like the killer his BA is.

Any other standouts? Is Reynolds even a standout?


Thanks

Youkilis, Nick Johnson, Jack Cust, Carlos Pena, Pedroia, Tulowitzki, Matt Holliday, Jason Bay, Bobby Abreu, Shin-Soo Choo, Nick Swisher, and JD Drew just to name a few.

Equally as important are guys that lose value in OBP leagues.

Some more unknown ones...
Zobrist - .297/.406
I. Stewart - .228/.322 (if he can get his avg. back to .250-.260 range he becomes much more helpful)
Figgins - .298/.395
Jayson Werth - .268/.373

Also Prince - .299/.412

basically just go to a stats site and sort players by walk rate, pretty much anyone over 10% gains value in an OBP league.

I didn't realize OBP and walks were such obscure stats that you needed other opinions instead of spending seconds to research. Kudos to all the other posters who actually gave constructive answers to the lazy poster.

God forbid we actually be helpful around here. Prancing around with a snarky, holier than thou attitude is a much more productive means of being. :-°
