Rotisserie settings

This is my first year being the commish of a Rotisserie league and I was wondering if OBP and K/BB are categories that can work in a Rotisserie league.

I say keep things simple.

Use normal 5x5 -- maybe add 1 category to each (offense/pitching). OBP and a pitching stat....

K/BB is nice -- but I don't like duplicating stats (K's are part of the normal 5x5). I personally like HOLDS -- brings in a new crop of pitchers (like Marte/Donnellly/etc).

I'm guessing you meant K/BB for pitchers....not hitters.

I was in an interesting league last year that added OBP for hitters and Holds for pitchers. Then the commish replaced K's with K/9. Very cool! It was a fun stat set.......

Our league used OBP instead of AVG last year and it worked out really well. If anyone is interested in joining such a league, send me a PM.

We add OPS and holds. Holds are nice for several reasons, including added strategy in creating a pitching staff, more realism, and the fact that many "holders" are really more valuable than closers in real baseball (because they come in with men on base, they often save more runs than a closer who just pitches the ninth).

OPS is a nice balance to the traditional 5. It counts both OBP and SLG so it rewards guys who walk and have power, who are undervalued by AVG and HRs.

I don't like K/9. It emphasizes relievers over starters. In 2002 our league had K/9 and K/BB, and the guy who had Curt Schilling dominated K/BB from the outset. We switched to Ks in 2003 and opened up the Holds category. We also substituted home runs allowed for losses. We're happy now.

If you are going to add I would go with OBP and Holds.

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

Agreed! Adding OBP and Holds makes for a nice 6x6 league.....
