7x7 league info

7x7 league info

Postby Roadtrip » Wed Feb 06, 2008 11:53 pm

I am in a 7x7 league H2H,
categories are
OFFENSE: R, HR, RBI, Errors, SB, AVG, OBP
DEFENSIVE: W, L, SO, H, ERA, WHIP, Saves

Where can I find pertinate information for this league with these categories, info like top 10 hitters, best 2nd basemen... All the info seems aimed at 5x5, ROTO or Auction leagues...
I can use Yahoo, where the league is played out of... but need more info...

Also, does anyone use Shandler's baseball forcaster http://www.baseballhq.com/books/bf.shtml
or
The Baseball HQ: http://www.baseballhq.com/tour/

The Forecaster is about $30, including shipping
and to subscribe to the website, is about $100 for a year...
Is it worth it?

and what is TB as a category?

Thanks,

Roadtrip,

TB = Total Bases which is calculated by adding up # of singles, 2X # of doubles, 3X # of triples, and 4X # of Homers. This number is the numerator in the slugging percentage calculation.

So if a hitter had a line like this:

AB 1B 2B 3B HR
400 75 15 1 15

Then their batting average would be 106/400 or .265

Total bases = 75 + 30 (15*2) + 3 (3*1) + 60 (15*4) = 168
Slugging Percentage = 168/400 = .420

As far as finding a site that helps project all of your categories, you can use rototimes' (I think they inlcude all of your categories except maybe the errors) draft kit.

I just bought the baseball forecaster book. I like it so far. I have not subscribed to the HQ site.

Good Luck,
Bruiser

I would lobby and try to get Errors eliminated as a category. It really has no place in fantasy baseball.
