i noticed that we have switched to OBP from BA. My only problem with the switch is findings projection/rankings that utilize OBP.

Any suggestions?


Easy emough to change. What do people want? *

The polls should be by league, not by all three collectively

And not everyone checks this board every day, or even every week.

There's such a thing as a quorum, also.


I agree. Was just pointing it out.

That's what league message boards are for. We're using the message board in the Farm to determine draft date/time.


That's fine, but there's no email notification from

the league message boards, so if there have been any in the Show, I wouldn't know.

As bsuryn says below, two people from the Show voted and it was split. There shouldn't be a change in the rules based on that.

And as he also points out, it's much harder to find rankings based on OBP, and I know I'm not alone in that I really don't have the time to chase that stuff down. Yes, for statistical evaluation purposes in the real world of baseball OBP is a much better stat. But that's not the point of all this. If the majority want the change, fine, but only two people even responded.


Are there any SHOW members who voted in that poll?

i don't recognize any.

edit: i see 2 SHOW members voting(NDKevin & Tubes) with a 1-1 vote.

should we not have a full SHOW vote before switching?

i have been unable to find free usable rankings that use OBP, and the Yahoo rankings do not use them.

We absolutely should. And I don't like the change to OBP

for the same reason you don't. So that's my vote right there. I'll go with the consensus, if there is one, but I haven't seen any such consensus.


I vote batting average *
