welcome to the cafe 81mm.

If this is your 1st year I would recomend standard 5x5 scoring. It is the easiest and after you do it for a year you might want to expand to a few more categorys.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

5x5 scoring uses 5 hitting catagories....(average, runs, homeruns, RBI, and stolen bases)...and 5 pitching catagories...(earned run average, wins, strike outs, *WHIP, and saves)...that is the easiest scoring system for a beginner to use.... :-)

* WHIP= Walks+Hits/Innings pitched

Welcome to the Cafe'..... ;-D

5x5 is also the ranking system that most magazines and websites use, so it's easy to get player rankings. Have fun!

The best scoring in fantasy baseball is when you are in first place. That's the absolute best scoring possible. ;-)

Why not try a 5x5 league and a H2H league? Maybe make the H2H a points league, and that gets you a little bit more of a variety? :-?
