6th Category?

Postby Dylanis » Wed Mar 21, 2007 4:12 am

If you were playing in a roto league, and you wanted to add a 6th category to each hitting and pitching, what would they be?

OPS because it encompasses OBP and SLG, and then Holds.

I agree. If you don't wish to add Holds, go with K/BB.

OPS will drastically shift value to your power hitters, but who likes dinking about with SBs anyway... SBs have little importance to the actual outcomes irl. Holds will take value away from SPs, but in h2h not so much. In roto I'd go with k/bb.

We did OPS and HR Allowed. Kind of flukey, but K/BB is already represented in WHIP and Ks... we didn't want holds so that is what we went with.

We are pretty happy with it.

OPS is a must for me, and with pitching I'm not that fond of holds though I've gotten used to it in my main league so I suppose it does the trick. If not holds then I would agree on K/BB.

I'm just curious as to what the advantages of having a 6th or even 7th category in some leagues are? At some point you just have too many categories to easily manage, and are better off just going with a points league. To each, his or her own, I guess. vr, Xei
