Bonds #1 in league which counts OB%?

Postby johnwesleyharding » Wed Feb 02, 2005 10:22 pm

I have the 2nd pick... guy with the one says he is taking AROD... do I take Bonds or Pujols... our (offensive part) of scoring system is:

h2h 1 point for avg, ob, tb, rbi, r, sb and hr... 2 at each infield positions, 5 outfielders, 5 starters, 2 relievers...

Which is more valuable in our league?[/list][/list][/quote]

tempting though Bonds may be, I would still say Pujols is the safer pick

Yeah, Bonds by a landslide. He is such an asset in my OBP league.

There are going to be a bunch of cafe regulars who try to say otherwise though. The Cafe is not huge on Bonds. Do yourself a favor and tune these people out.

i would feel better with pujols... beside the fact that he is 25 and still getting better (though he does have that heel injury)... Bonds has steroids, age, media attention all going against him... that being said, statistically he is a HUGE difference maker in OB%... Brain says Bonds, gut says Pujols...

thanks for the re-affirmation... my "list" tells me that bonds is far and away the #1... just needed someone else to say it is o.k. to take him... my strategy is going to say his name as quickly as possible... hell, even write it on a piece of paper and show it... (not sure if i can even verbalize the words "barry bonds"... big headed - team carrying bastard...

thanks to all who participated!!

you should go with your feelings.

Bonds is an absolute OBP monster, no denying that so on the surface he looks the obvious pick.

However, Bonds is more of a risk. Injury and age factors in particular. There also may not be that much of a difference in total bases, even if Bonds did stay healthy all year and Pujols could conceivably beat Bonds in every other category you use other than OBP.
