Except that it isn't an out. And lo and behold the person is on base. Which is what stat is designed to describe.
If reaching on an error was a random occurrence, that would be one thing. But it isn't.  Some players do reach more often than others.

I genuinely thought it counted.  It makes sense to me that it should. I can see the point behind why it doesn't. I'm not saying anyone is stupid for thinking opposite than I do though.

Should OBP count on a dropped 3rd strike?
