H2H Category question....counterproductive maybe?

Postby 4Pack » Sat Mar 08, 2008 9:32 am

Private 10 team Yahoo H2H scoring. Just noticed new settings in our league this season. In previous seasons it was pretty much standard 5X5 categories. However...now we have a Caught Stealing category to go along with the Stolen Base category.

My question is...would these two categories kind of cancel each other out? I have never paid alot of attention to how many times an individual player is caught stealing..but to me it seems the more a player attempts a SB the more times he will be caught stealing. Know what I am getting at here? Can you win one category on a consistent basis without losing the other category?

normally they cancel each other out, so in my opinion, you can win one and the other if you have a very efficient baserunner, in which there are only a handful, so if you can I would get rid of it or punt stolen bases.

What I post is my OPINION, I have never said I was a expert, you asked for help, I gave you my help.

5x5 WITH caught stealing? %-6

It's a BORING statistic and difficult to account for...in a game RICH in stats! Of all the choices...?

Trying changing the two categories to 1(NSB) which is simply (stolen bases - caught stealing). I understand the rationale, since SB rewards guys for doing something very specific, but you don't get penalized when they screw up. However a 6x5 with SB and CS is bad...

All this really does though is change around the value of certain base stealers(those who get caught more).

Ichiro went about a year, stealing 40 or so bases, and not getting caught once.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I really don't understand why a league would do this. There are a few guys that if they get a good jump then they are impossible to get out. Reyes and Ichiro are the only two that I have seen in recent years.

Just really a dumb stat.
