Not true! If they had one walk (and they already have one SF), their OBP would be like their BA but with 1 for 2 added. This would make their OBP somewhere between their BA and .500. The OBP and BA would only be equal if (as with Abreu) the BA is .500.

Can he outpace two-time defending NL sac-flies champ Bengie Molina?

Ah, the drama behind the low walk totals!
