    If he can hit 40 Homeruns and pick it at third in the big leagues, I dont care if his OBP is .100

    An OBP of .100 would be a serious drag on any offense. Although I'm sure you were just being funny anyway.

    In other words, between these two lines, the latter is worth 1.8 times as much as the former?

    A player who goes 30-105 with zero walks has a line of .295/.295/.300.
    A player who goes 25-95 with 10 walks has a line of .263/.333/.263.

    Sam Lecure started last night for Gigantes of the Dominican Winter League (same team Francisco is on). His line: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K

    Wilkin Castillo went 1-for-3.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    2 homers AND 2 walks? Nice.

    Wow. The two walks excite as much as the homers. Talk about being on fire, he's got five straight multi-hit games with four homers in that stretch. Oh, and he's walked four times in his last two games.

    Overall, Francisco is hitting .333/.393/.667 - 1.060 OPS in 51 atbats.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Whenever I read this thread title I can't help but think the thread is about which Reds prospects playing winter ball are catholics.

    Are you saying a .350 OBP is worth a .630 SLG? That seems like a stretch.

    I agree. The "confirmed" adjective seems to encourage future confirmands that they will play winter ball in sunny climates upon being confirmed.

    Are any/all of these IBB's? If not that's a fairly encouraging sign to have 5 in the past 3 games. Even for a naysayer like me.
