"It's easier to give up. I'm not a very vocal player. I lead by example. I take the attitude that I've got to go out and do it. Because of who I am, I've got to give everything I've got to come back."
-Ken Griffey Jr.

I think we can. If we CAN, then why on earth would you use a stat (BA) that makes them all equal AND ignores other ways of getting on base.
OPS isn't the greatest stat on the planet, but it's a great, simple way to compare players, and it's a heck of a lot more accurate then batting average.
