I like using OBP over AVE because in the SABR age it is clear which of those two is a better indicator.
But call me a traditionalist when it comes to HR over SLG. The joy of watching/listening to a game and hearing your guy hit that HR and know you just added to your total is something special. I'm not sure I want to wait to figure out how his home run impacts another ratio stat.
Of course it is complicated by the fact that R and RBI are also incremented with the home run, so you could argue the joy of the HR is still there. But I don't really want to lose that stat.
Hmmm. maybe we should have a thread where we debate some totally different 5x5, using other stats, including say, plate appearances?
