What 6th stat do you guys like the best(Batting)?

Postby BravesGuy » Wed Oct 12, 2005 7:27 pm

Besides the basic 5 stats what is your fav. additional stat for Batting?

Ive never used one besides Errors and Fileding%, which arent really good. I was thinking OBP, or Extra Base Hits(If there is such a thing)
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

A fun one to use is Total Bases, which some people I know hate, but is still a fun, different category to use. Another fun thing to do is to replace BA with OPS. I know that's pretty commonplace around here, but it makes for some more interesting league play. I'm a 5x5 man myself ;-D

If you can expand it to 7 categories I would go with OBA and SLG seperately. That's how my H2H league is setup. AVG plus OBA and SLG is a little redundant but it's a fun setup. If I had to stay at 6 categories I would scrap AVG and use OBA/SLG instead of using AVG/OPS.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I agree, always love having at least 1 or two of: OBP - SLG - OPS

If your going to play a serious league I definitely say OPS, end of argument.

Sometimes things like 2B's, SB%(although it's hard in H2H leauges to use), K's, and TB's are fun to use though.
