I think a lot of us have become smitten with OPS, which is a great stat, but HRs boost it so much that you can mash a few HRs and look horrendous in the rest of the PAs and you couldn't tell by the stat. I've recently come to appreciate the OPS stat more the past year or two, but it's not perfect. I don't feel like it rewards players enough just for simply getting on base and avoiding outs - for example, check out Ichiro Suzuki's career OPS - it's shockingly low for a Hall of Fame player!

Can’t hold it against the guy, a homerun is a homerun, but not exactly like they came in tight games.
