OPS, by itself, is not a measure of anything. It is a combination of two stats -- OBP and SLG. You can add them up and get OPS. Or you can look at them separately as measuring two different skills.
If you have some other explanation for OPS, I'm sure we'd all love to hear it.
I'll give a simple answer. There is a floor to OPS, one that shows a player is bad offensively. I've never seen a .400 OBP .250 SLG player boefore. If you are under .700, you, well, suck.
