Yahoo Hitting & the NL Pitcher

Postby Smileyman9 » Mon Jul 03, 2006 4:12 pm

Does anybody know if Yahoo counts offensive stats earned by a pitcher? IE Carlos Zambrano hit a HR, does it count in the offensive category?

Hopefully this hasnt been asked 1000 times already...

no it doesnt count. sure it would be nice to get an extra hr when a pitcher goes yard, but you sure wouldnt want them to count all of the 0-3's and 0-4's right??? :-D

True, I was thinking that myself (the negative hitting stats by pitchers) just something that I never thought to really take into consideration when drafting NL pitching...

Exactly. Is the once-in-a-blue-moon HR worth a whole season of 0/2 and 0/3 games? Plus there's a huge discrepancy since the AL pitchers may get 3 at bats all season through interleague play.

One funny thing, though, would be to see what fantasy leagues would do if another Babe Ruth showed up. In 1919, his transition year, the Babe was 9-5 with a 2.97 ERA on the mound and he batted .322 with 29 HR and 114 RBI.

My friends and I are setting up a legends fantasy league (computer-simulated games) and we're debating this: should we have two Ruths available for drafting, one as a pitcher and the other as a batter?

If it's set up like a fantasy league then I would say yes. If it's set up like a regular season league, then no.
