If you used OBP then it is a different story.
you know the Player Rater on ESPN isn't that bad a place to start-here's their top 10 (Based on pts above avg)
1. Randy Johnson, 9.01
2. Jason Schmidt, SF 8.83
3. Bob Abreu, Phi OF 8.11
4. Albert Pujols, StL OF 8.09
5. Johan Santana, Min P 7.28
6. Vladimir Guerrero, Ana OF 7.01
7. Scott Rolen, StL 3B 7.00
8. Ben Sheets, Mil P 6.76
9. Carlos Beltran, Hou OF 6.58
10. San Francisco OF, SF 6.28
You can slant those player raters, dependent on what categories you use, any way you like.
Using standard HR, AVG, RBI, R, SB Beltran is not Top 10.
