Baseball is after all a team game. We should know who plays on a loaded lineup and who plays with stiffs and adjust our opinions of a player accordingly.
Walking isn't really suffering. Bonds is by far the best offensive player in bb.
Bonds 15.11 runs per 27
Pujols 10.79 runs per 27
By not using walks or oba in fantasy, you are taking a big part of real bb out of fantasy. If roto was more realistic, Bonds would be a top 3 pick easy.

btw - congrats on 3,000 from me and all of the Blowfish.

Are you talking roto or real life?
Arlo wrote:In real life, I admit that I don't like ops as much as most people do, or at least the way it's viewed as the stat to end all stats. To begin with, it's flawed as a means of evaluating a player's value (with obp being undervalued compared with slg, for one thing).
