1st Time Yahoo commissioner - Need help with scoring

Postby johnnie2130 » Fri Feb 20, 2004 6:46 pm

I'm setting up a Yahoo league and haven't done this before. Most of the teams in my league haven't done it either. I need your thoughts on how many points to give to the following categories I chose.

(For batters) R, H, Singles, Doubles, Triples, HR, RBI, SB, W

(For pitchers) IP, W, CG, Shutouts, S, K

Let me know if you think I need fewer offensive categories or more pitching categories. I'd like it to be pretty balanced.

Thanks for your help and remember I'm new at this! 8-o

if you can you should try to make the hitters categories and pitchers the same. This does not make one worth more than another. If you have 8 hitters and 5 pitchers, who would draft a pitcher? Also, I am not a big fan of doing singles, doubles, and triples along with hits and avg because too many categories overlap. I try to keep it so you have 5 or 6 individual categories for each. I personally like 6x6 with walks or OBP added to regular hitters and maybe CG added to regular pitchers. I wish opponents batting avg was there. Just my 2 cents

Having Hits, singles, doubles, triples, and HR leads to duplication and getting credit twice for one hit. I would lose singles for sure and probably doubles and triples as well.

OK, I eliminated the Singles, Doubles and Triples. Now I have this:

(For batters) R, H, HR, RBI, SB, W

(For pitchers) IP, W, CG, Shutouts, S, K

How's that?

I also wanted to hear suggestions on how many points I should give each category too.

Thanks!

It's not too late to change the type of league if H@H would make it more fun and interesting.

Thanks! I need opinions now on whether a h2h league or points league would be more fun to play. If it's a points league, how many points should I give each category?
