I faced a tough decision, and have decided to bench all my batters in head-to-head matchups except for those with the best opportunity to get OBP and SLG.
My team averages 21 runs, 24 RBIs, 3 SB, .312 OBP, .353 SLG.
My oponents' team averages 24 runs, 39 RBIs, 7 SB, .361 OBP, .517 SLG.
Over the past 4 weeks, I have gone 4-15-1 in batting categories. If I had been head-to-head with my oponent, I would have gone 1-19.
So I have decided to start only a couple of players this week - those that have the best oportunity to get on base and hit for extra bases. Effectivley I am giving up 3 categories (R, RBI, SB) for 2 (OBP, SLG - which isn't guaranteed).
Should I be allowed to do this?
(and note - I'm the commissioner of this league... We have a minimum innings rule, but no minimum AB rule).
