The problem with that logically is that you're giving more credit for someone going 21 for 41 than someone who went 0 for 0 when an out is normally worth much, much more than a base.
I agree on your second point though. OPS is a good stat, but still has holes with comparing it with real baseball value added. I think the simplest thing is to ignore baserunning in general which is what they do now.
