Strategies/Thoughts on this H2H scoring format

Postby outflow » Mon Mar 05, 2007 3:17 pm

Here are the scoring cats for this 10-team (2 player keeper) H2H.

Offensive
R,1B,2B,3B,HR,RBI,SB,BB,AVG

Pitching
W,L,CG,SHO,SV,K,ERA,WHIP

I have placed the obvious premium on offensive everyday players with the less risk argument and the 9 to 8 stat tally. An additional acknowledgement has been given to SP's with high K rates and higher W/L ratios. An uptick is also given to workhorse inning eater starters with approximately 12% of the stats going to complete games/shutouts. Shouldn't saves be punted in this format?

My strategy the past few years has been to place an extreme premium on SB's and 3B scoring cats. When done, it essentially takes those two categories away from the other team. This is taken care of because my two keepers are Jose Reyes and Carl Crawford. Then the focus of the first three drafting rounds is exclusively on big HR/RBI players.

What am I missing? I know you all have thoughts.

Those pitching stats are terrible for H2H. CG? SHO? Thats just silly. I'd talk to your owners about changing the league settings to something that makes more sense.

ditch the CG and SHO, those will be few and far between. Add K/9 or BB/K
