Actually it is more like 40% more offical AB. No on else sees an advantage cause in those extra 239 offical AB, Vlad makes around 158 outs. Bonds - .600 OBP
Vlad - .400 OBP

He may well have the strongest arm, but it is not the best arm. There are at least a half dozen RF arms I would rather have.

I can think of three or four maybe off the top of my head, but who are the others? :-[

I would put Sheffield, Magglio, Dye, and Walker above Vlad's arm. Nixon and Ichiro would be slightly below Vlad's arm but they play a better RF than Vlad so they don't have to use the arm quite as much. Vlad's arm is probably the strongest out of them all (Dye's is likely the closest), but he can be very erratic and uses it in many situations that he shouldn't.

You either overvalue Vlad, or undervalue Bonds. As good as Vlad is, he won't ever come close to Bonds at any age.
