How can I exploit my league's odd scoring...Any strategies?

Postby tecmobowl12 » Mon Apr 09, 2007 8:20 pm

I'm a rookie and can't figure out if this scoring system can be exploited. So far I've just tried to field a balanced team, but am wondering if there's something I'm missing...

Yahoo 10 team Rotisserie
Daily-Tomorrow roster deadlines
No max moves/trades
No max IP/GP

Stat Categories:
R, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OPS
IP, W, SV, BB, K, ERA, WHIP

Roster Positions
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF, Util
SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P
BN, DL, DL, DL, DL

Here is my current roster if it helps:

C-Mike Piazza
1B-Albert Pujols
2B-Howie Kendrick
3B-B.J. Upton
SS-Hanley Ramirez
CI-Nomar Garciaparra
MI-Bill Hall
OF-Carlos Lee
OF-Delmon Young
OF-Rocco Baldelli
UT-Jeff Francoeur
BN-J.D. Drew

SP-Jake Peavy
SP-Brandon Webb
SP-John Lackey
RP-Mariano Rivera
RP-Al Reyes
RP-Scot Shields
P-Dan Haren
P-Javier Vazquez
P-Jonathan Broxton
DL-Octavio Dotel
DL-Taylor Tankersley

Thanks for your help

if you get rewarded for the most Innings Pitched then you could try adding more starting pitchers.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

My thought is that if maxing out my innings helps IP,W,K but hurts BB,ERA,WHIP - then it's basically a wash. At least not significant enough to justify the extra effort of adding and dropping every day...

My only empirical support for the above is that according to the baseballmonster site, Scot Shields' value increases from -.14 to -.11 when you add the IP,BB categories to the standard five
