Yeah, OBP is great for value, but it doesn't speak much for a hitters true ability. Bonds' walks don't seem to help the team as much as they should. I think he'd be better off swinging at borderline strikes, given that his strike zone is much smaller than anyone else's. He making the big bucks. He's their best hitter. He needs to be swinging the bat. Not walking to first base where he's an easy force out, or where it take at least two hits to get him home anyway.
Looks like there's a lot of tweaking that needs to be done there. Do you plan on addressing any of those issues?
If Babe Ruth had lived into his sixties he would have mellowed into the phase of a man's life when he puts aside many of this world's commitments. Consciously or unconsciously, old people usually adjust their demands to what is possible, in order to get peace of mind. Ruth never reached that age....He was an unwanted man and didn't live to be old enough not to care. - Marshall Smelser
