Nothing wrong with criticizing the small stuff.
I'm also not sure what you mean, however. Are you saying that K/IP is meaningless in fantasy leagues? That might be the case in some formats, but I was thinking about the leagues with IP caps that Mad mentioned. Relievers with a solid K/IP rate can be a huge help there, particularly in deeper leagues. Perhaps I should have specified that.
As to K/IP vs. K/9 ... I guess that would be a case of you say to-may-to, I say to-mah-to.
(Seriously, though, I tend use the two interchangeably, and don't really give much thought to which of the two I'm using.)
