That .600 OBP is overkill. I've played in 3 OBP leagues and every Bonds owner wins that cat by a huge amount at the end of the year.

It's like drafting a guy who steals 200 bases. It's wasteful.

It would be like drafting a guy who stole 200 bases and still hit 40+ HR, had 100+ RBI/Runs and batted around .350. I need more wasteful players like that. ;-D

Somebody with time and good math skills can probably figure out just how much more Barry is worth in OBP/OPS leagues.

That's a good idea. It is tough to pull off since there are only like 3 players who are as valuable as Bonds.

Bonds. What Tavish said.

Bonds. Bonds. Barry Lamar. BLB. How many other ways can I say it?
