Triples -- I'd rather have a double

Postby SeovyeQuirsefron » Wed May 24, 2006 2:54 pm

It just bugs me that in my league a we count doubles, but get nothing for triples (other than one extra Total Base). I don't want to add more categories since we already have too many -- 19. But I wish there was some way that triples could be counted with doubles.

You should have an extra base hit-HR category instead of 2B. Triples are still nice if you count OPS or Slugging.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

We have the same problem in our league...we count doubles but not triples. ARam hit a triple today, and I was pissed because I'm behind in doubles this week. It sucks, but there's not enough guys who hit enough triples for it to be a real stat.

In one of our CBS leagues, we use Doubles + Triples as a stat. And in the other, we use Total Bases.

i used tb in the league i commish this year instead of hr, h and 2b. i wanted to reward a good slugging percentage, but not have hrs and slg%. including both seemed kind of redundant. its good to reward triples hitters, they work hard for that extra ninety feet. ;-D
