I'm starting a 6x6 mixed auction keeper. We're thinking about these cats:

OBP
SLG
HR
R
RBI
SB
--------
WINS
ERA
WHIP
SAVES + HOLDS
K/9
K/BB

Looks good to me. You might need a fairly high IP minimum, though, if you want to avoid all-reliever strategies.

I agree. You need to ensure that someone doesn't stack up their closers and run away with the pitching stats

What about making Innings pitched a category? Or should I just set a 1000 inning minimum?

In addition to the high IP - think about changing k/9 to simply k. I do not see the reason behind averaging ks, it devalues startes too much.

hmm

In roto Yahoo has a Maximum of 1250 so 900-1000 sounds about right to me.

Hey Moose, on my post you said "that's EXACTLY what I was going to say." Did you mean Hudson and Abreu?

I would make it 5x5 and change your OBP and SLB to just OPS. And those pitching categories are a little silly. I don't like Holds and I also agree to just do K's not K/IP.

the system favors relievers ALOT. you'll need an IP min for sure. i dont really want to crunch the numbers but it shouldnt be too hard to figure out. i would also go with K's instead of K/9 since the system is reliever friendly
