Maybe I've set a high bar for OBP from both Dickerson and Stubbs, but with both of them being low SLG guys, essentially they become OBP and D guys, who hopefully can steal some bags here and there.
Granted, OBP is one of the only things I care for from a potential leadoff hitter, so that's why I place so much emphasis on the stat.
You're probably right that we'd be able to forget about either Dickerson or Stubbs if they consistently OBP'd .375.
