I am in a money league with friends and the commish rotates each year. It goes unspoken that the rules dont really need to be changed but the commish this year is one of those guys that just has to have things his way, a completely different way. Anyway, we will probably have 9 stat categories:
R, HR, RBI, SB, E, AVG - W, L, SV, K, ERA
As you can see there is no WHIP and the batting categories outnumber the pitching categories. It is a head-to-head scoring system with a little twist. Usually if a team were to win in 8 categories and lose 1 his win loss record for that week would be 8-1. But now, in that case it would only be 1-0. Just as if he had won 5 stat categories to the other's 4, it will still be 1-0.
I was thinking of drafting nothing but Batting. I would be punting the pitching categories but it would not matter as much as it usually would because if my hitting held up then I would still have the same record as if I won every stat category every week. Does this make sense?
I believe this may improve my chances but if you have an opposing view please let me know. Thanks for any input.
