OPS=?

on base + slugging

On-Base Percentage Plus Slugging.
To put this in perspective, the top 5 OPS guys in the MLB right now are:

1. A-Rod, 1.060
2. Bonds, 1.050
3. Ordonez, 1.036
4. C. Pena, 1.027
5. C. Jones, 1.012
(Ortiz is 1.001)

It's a little tough to get used to, but generally speaking a decent player starts at about .800, a good player is about .900, a great player is above 1.000.

Some people divide OPS in their head by three:

1. ARod .353
2. Bonds .350
3. Ordonez .345
4. Pena .342
5. Jones .337

I personally prefer OBP to OPS because power generally follows a good eye, but it does help equalize the extremes.
