In my league, we don't use Batting Average, we use On-Base Percentage and Slugging Percentage as separate categories, and Bonds is BY FAR the most valuable player. Last year, Bonds slipped to me at the 5th pick and I was elated. Half of the owners in the league absolutely hate Bonds with a passion so I'm hoping I can get a good draft choice and nab him. He could drop 200 points in both OBP and SLG and still be a .400/.600 guy.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
