  • Playerlink Error

    Shin Soo-Choo's OBP has been incorrect for a week, that I know of. It's 30 points too low on his Playerlink.
    20 Team 7x7 Roto-- 2 catchers. 1-game in season eligibility


    BATTING: AVG| OBP| R| HR| RBI| SB-CS| TB+SB (homers = 2 points, not 4)
    PITCHING: ERA| Whip| W-L| K/9| QS+CG| Holds| S-BS

    We don't figure HBP into our OBP calcs. Rarely makes any difference, but for a guy like Choo who has 20 HBPs, it does.

      I've always disagreed with this. Getting HBP CAN be a skill rather than luck. Ask Hunt, Baylor, Biggio, even Utley and ARod.

      Really, not figuring HBP into OBP smacks of, well, laziness, or at least a poor thought process. Sorry, but that's what I think.

        It certainly can be a skill, but not for that many players. Over the past 3.5 years, only 8 MLB batters are averaging more than 10 HBP per season.

        That said, I'd prefer HBP to be included in OBP just because that's the way the rest of the world defines the statistic.

          Yeah, I'm coming around to this point of view too.
