 On-base plus slugging - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball statistics, on-base plus slugging (denoted by OPS) incorporates on base percentage (OBP) and slugging percentage (SLG).
This statistic combines both the ability of a player to get on base and to hit for power.
It is very popular in measuring the offensive worth of a player, because it is easy to calculate and has a strong positive correlation, at the team level, with runs per game.

 Baseball statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On-base plus slugging (OPS) is a somewhat complicated formula that gauges a hitter's performance better than batting average.
It combines the hitter's on base percentage ([hits + walks + number of times hit by pitches] divided by [number of times at bat + walks + number of times hit by a pitch + number of sacrifice flies]) with their slugging percentage (total bases divided by at bats).

Based on league averages, you'd expect a runner who was on third for 146 events to score twice (total) on passed balls or wild pitches.
Instead, we'll review of all of Ichiro's times on base from the 2001 season, and that should give you a good feel for his ability (or inability, as the case may be) to advance on ground balls and fly balls.
Compared with third base, speed is more of a factor with a runner on second, but the number of opportunities to use it is still lower than you might think.

 19 to 21 Baseball... Then and Now
Over the 10 seasons in question, the NL average for extra base hits has been 8.6% (with a high of 9.2% and a low of 7.8%) of total at bats, and the AL average has been 9%, with a high of 9.4% and a low of 8.2%.
Since the beginning of the RocketBall Era (1993), the number of extra base hits, and the number of walks, in relation to total at bats (not plate appearances, but at bats) in the major leagues has remained fairly constant.
So, if player X has somewhere close to a tenth as many extra base hits as at bats, and right around a tenth as many walks as at bats, you can figure he's a pretty average offensive player.

To take this into account Neft subtracts the batter's slugging percentage from 1 and uses this in the calculation of what he calls "on base advantage".
And for those hitters who never get an intentional walk their walks will always be valued the same as a base hit in the OPS calculation, something we know from Batting Runs that is not correct.
Basically, this is an acknowledgment that there is an opportunity cost associated with taking a walk and that pitchers sometimes choose to walk a batter based on the potential damage pitching to the batter could do.

In all cases, the averages cited are OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging average) including only those atbats while playing that position, so they generally won't match a player's overall numbers.
For example, at second base, the Yankees (mainly Alfonso Soriano) were number one, followed by the Mariners (primarily Bret Boone) and the Angels (mostly an Adam Kennedy / Benji Gil platoon).
The Red Sox, for instance, were very good in the outfield (first, sixth, and second) and DH (second), pitiful (14th) at first base, and below average at second base.

Adding the batter’s On Base Average (OBA) to his Slugging Average (SLG) has one significant disadvantage according to baseball experts Rob Neyer and Paul DePodesta (Assistant GM of the Oakland A’s), one extra point of OBA is worth more than one extra point of SLG.
