Triples?

Postby Guttenburg » Fri Feb 16, 2007 12:24 pm

14 team H2H league with offensive stats as following: R, H, RBI, HR, OBP, S, 2B

I know those are a whole lot of categories as it stands, but if you're gonna go that far, I really don't see how 3b's can just be discarded. Any arguements for or against?

3B aren't very common so they are going to inflate the value for speedy guys. I personally don't like 3B as a cat.

BTW - Why count H, 2B, HR and OBP? Why not just make it BB instead of OBP?

What would be the argument for BB over OBP?

It is just that H, 2B, and HR are being counted by themselves and then they are also being counted towards OBP.

Since this is a Head-to-Head and assuming your S means Steals,
I think you have to include Triples. If you dont include triples then it doesnt penalize an owner who "punts" stolen bases. With Steals and Triples as a category it makes owners think twice about loading up on sluggers only. Owners who draft wisely get rewarded in two categories.
