The team that doesn't meet the minimum innings pitched loses all pitching categories for the week automatically. We've always used 27 innings, and that seems to work pretty good.

That's awesome.

Another question. In replacing 2B & 3B with R, would TB be better, that way you are at least rewarded for the 3B if you don't end up scoring.

K and K/BB isn't a little redundant?

Not really. Look at Carlos Silva version 2005 for an example of a pitcher worthless in k's and absolutely ridiculous in k/bb. He struck out 71 batters in 188.1ip. That's not just bad...that's terrible (3.39k/9). He only walked 9 batters though the ENTIRE season for a 71-9 k/bb ratio or 7.89 k/bb. Johan Santana was only 5.29 that year and he's absolutely dominant in that category.

This is our leagues fifth year in existence and the first time we are using the exact same settings. These have been optimized over time and I believe they are the best for h2h.

Batting:
R, RBI, SB, OBP, Total Bases

Pitching
W, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/9

Minimum innings pitched should be at least 35 (we use 40). These are settings for a 12 team league. They prevent churning of pitchers by having k/9, but also require a substantial sample size with the high minimum innings pitched.

I'm in a league that just went to:

Batting:
R, RBI, SB, OPS, Total Bases and HR

Pitching
W, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, and K's

Fairly similar, but the OPS instead of OBP may favor the sluggers a little more. With no AVG, we just did the draft, and I wound up takind Adam Dunn alot sooner than I would in other type leagues (points or h2h w/AVG)

Thanks for all the input guys. I pretty much got everyone on board for H2H this year. Still sorting out the categories, but right now I have it at a 6x6
TB,HR,AVG,RBI,SB,K : W,SV,ERA,WHIP,K,HLD

Thoughts?

The reason to not use OPS or OBP, stuff like that is this is only our second year and there are definitely varying degrees of baseball knowledge and whatnot. I want to try and keep it so the categories are a little more "tangible" to those people new to baseball.

Thanks again.
