Wins vs. Quality Starts

Postby phillibuster » Fri Dec 30, 2005 10:36 am

Since Fantasy Baseball is such an individual sport....why do we put more creedance on Wins as a pitcher category, than the Quality Start? If this has been discussed ad nauseum before then please point me to the link....but I just get very angry when a SP goes 8 strong innings only to lose 2-1.

My greviance is with a points league where Wins are worth 10 and losses are -5. But for head to head leagues where W is a category, this can be as frustrating.

Again, I know from a MLB team standpoint that the W is the most important thing to get regardless of how the pitcher does. But Fantasy is very individualized.

Are Quality Starts avaliable as a stat? That would be VERY cool. I totally agree that W is a pretty useless stat for any other purpose but cheerleading for your team. Who will W or L anyway...

QS is a stat and I'm pretty sure you can look it up on ESPN.com. If I have this correct I think quality start is when a SP pitches 6 or more innings and gives up 3 or less runs? Don't quote me on that but I'm pretty sure it's correct.

If Yahoo includes Quality starts as a stat this year, Im hoping my league drops wins and plugs in QS.

Quality starts should be available in any reputable fantasy sports site.
