In response to Tavish, I agree that fantasy managers can do whatever they see fit to win.
But - bear with me here - can the end goals of fantasy baseball really mirror those of major league baseball and still accurately depict the goals of major league baseball. In other words, do the categories most commonly used in fantasy baseball really do a good job of putting fantasy managers into similar positions as major league general managers?
I say no.
Very few of the scoring systems that I have played with take a progressive approach toward keeping par with the best - or even decent - indicators of how much a player contributes to his team winning.
I'm very interested in exploring why fantasy owners aren't more enthusiastic about making their job as a fantasy GM resemble that of a major league GM.
On what grounds do the most commonly used scoring systems in fantasy baseball today represent the decisions made by major league GMs?
