    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.

    Yes it is.

    OPS measures how often a player gets on base and how many bases he takes from the plate. It's a measure of offensive efficiency from the batter's box.

    It should be DFA material.

    Won't happen because of the two year deal. Ugh.

    I'd like to see Bray to the 60 day DL, Burton to AAA and Rosales to AAA. Sutton and Bankston to Cincy.

    Sutton plays 3B, Bankston plays 1B (or vice versa). Hernandez and Hanigan go back to rotating and resting more and Hairston platoons in CF with Dickerson and maybe spots at SS once in a while. Willy takes a seat for a while

    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.

    Wes Bankston has a .295 OBP at Louisville. I don't see how he is going to help.

    The only position players who are playing well enough to maybe merit a callup are Drew Stubbs and Drew Sutton. The only other player who might get a look is Wilkin Castillo (again) because of his defensive versatility.

    Heisey and Frazier should be considered too, IMO. It would be hard to pick Heisey wout bringing up Stubbs too without it being a serious slap in his face and they most likely wouldn't use both.
