Correct my logic about pitching Categories

Postby Guest » Sun Feb 22, 2004 11:44 pm

In my legue(h2h, 12 man) we use W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB for pitching Categories. I sat down and thought this over and then wondered...

If I go for pitchers with high Ks I would be covered for WHIP, K/BB, K.

Do you think I would be set in looking for people like Wood, Prior, ect?

Well yes the only problem is that theres only one Wood and only one Prior and not too many like them.

A high strike-out pitcher doesn't guarantee you a high K/BB ratio.

A high K pitcher doesn't mean your WHIP is low either.

Ishii can K 10 guys in 7 IP, but he might walk 5 and give up 7 hits .

Just make your pitcher list by only including ERA and Ks. A low ERA usually takes care of wins as well as WHIP, and the Ks should take care of the rest. I know that sounds obvious, but a lot of times, leagues are won by how well you arrange your draft lists.
It's time to roll the dice.
