Mark Reynolds in and OBP league

Postby Guzman24 » Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:12 am

In a league that counts OBP instead of AVG, obviously Mark Reynolds value jumps a bit. I'm just interested in hearing where some of you think it goes? Say he were to get 40HR and 15SB

A .350OBP as opposed to a .250-.260AVG would equate to a fairly significant jump would it not?

It would. In 2009, MLB average OBP was .333; league average BA was .262. Fantasy averages are obviously higher (the degree depending on league size) since we don't play with everyone, but these numbers are a good basis point.

Reynolds is average to above-average in terms of OBP and below average in terms of BA. So when you use OBP instead of BA, he'd help you in the category rather than hurt you. Which would push up his value pretty significantly.
