Are walks undervalued
« Topic Start: January 19, 2011, 11:56:45 PM »
Here's a really interesting article arguing that 500 walks should equal 325 singles, and then looking at what that trade would do to HOF chances for a number of players:

John Olerud has HOF stats if you make the 500 for 325 swap.  I'm assuming Josh Willingham & Adam Dunn have pretty good improvements as well.
