Anyone else find it odd that on base percentage is, in fact, an average?

OBP and OPS are too common and are included on even the simplest stat pages. In my opinion, they are not truly "sabermetric."

@SamWuzHere while I agree that OBP and OPS have become pretty mainstream recently, I am pretty sure they are still considered sabermetric. I can remove them if other people agree with you tho

I don't think OBP (which is in fact an average) belongs if SLG doesn't belong, but agree that OPS derives from SABR analysis, so it belongs.

I would consider OPS "sabermetric" but I can't say the same about OBP. OBP had been recognized as a valuable stat long before the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR, the acronym from which sabermetric is derived) was formed in 1971 so I would take that out. However, OPS was made popular by one of SABR's most popular members in 1984, so it should stay.

thanks for the input everyone, OBP is now gone. OPS stays

I feel dumb now that I see it, but I couldn't figure out why "defense independent pitching stats" was not an acceptable answer... I think that should be accepted
