And a =

the amount of blown saves by your bullpen (for saves)
1 if you own Ollie Perez, 2 if you own Ted Lilly, 5 if you own both, and 10 for each Colorado pitcher (ERA and WHIP)
the number of Oakland, Houston and Milwaukee starting pitchers you have (Wins)
[SPs + (RPs/3)] / [(K/9) * (1/days left in season)] (for strikeouts)

(1/team Avg.)*(# of teams in your league - your rank in the category) (for AVG)
the number of Oakland, Houston and Kansas City hitters you have (Runs and RBI)
(Colorado Hitters / 5) + (spots in lineup not allotted to steriod users) (HR)
[(Hits - XBH + BB + HBP)/10] * [(SB/CS) * (Team's collective weight in kilograms)] (for SBs)

Hope this helps. :-D

I wouldn't right now. I would just identify what you need and go get it. Fix your teams now while you a) realize what it is you need and b) other teams aren't exactly frightened yet and trying to squeeze everything out of trades.

seriously. Like if it is steals or saves, just make a trade, and don't worry about abstracts like value, but get needs. By that I mean don't worry if the other person gets "sluightly" better if you have a real need. Don't get ripped off either. Or, the other thing you could do is add to the categories where you are already rich right now -- start buying low for categories you are already strong in, just accumulating as much value as you can. Then around the break trade that surplus for your needs. If you haev faith in the guys you are buying low/taking a gamble on, trade a "name" or two for needs. But the key here is to build up your lead in the interim and pour it on.

I don't think you can divide by 0.


Haha. Let's just assume it's impossible for a person to be zero or less; then Vin Diesel would be .00000000000000000000000001, etc, so the term would then be infinity :-?

Sounds pretty good gretzky.. only thing I wanted to post was if someone's team is going the other way. If you notice you are dominating in a category, might wanna make some trades to help even out the team. For example, if you're getting your butt kicked in SBs but are doing well in HR, trade the HR guy. Fairly simplistic.

On this note, anyone else plan on trading Pods after about the halfway point this season? I have him, Abreu, and Roberts on one team, and am winning steals by 25. I bench Pods every so often to get some more power in there, but winning by 25 in roto is verry excessive (I have 56 already.)
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I would try and even out the team first too. but if you can't really mesh it up just yet, sometimes it is to your advantage to just accumulate as much value as you can, then trade lader. It is sometimes an intermediate step -- but it can save you capital in the longrun as well.

right now is too early for me to give up on a category... maybe the end of july or early august, i might give up on a category if i see by then that i have made no head way.... since u are down in steals now, i would try to make a trade that improved them.... u dont have to go the big route by getting pods or crawford,,,, but maybe u can get figgins and tori or u can go cheaper by getting izturis or freel....
