Is this unbelievable, or what?

Postby aardvarks » Thu Feb 26, 2004 6:56 pm

I just joined a fantasy leaue with some friends.
It's a head to head point league with 25 catagories
check this out:
Batters- Games started 1pt AB minus 1pt, Run 2 pt's, hit 2pt's,double 4pt's, triple 8pt's, HR 6pt's RBI 2 pt's, SB 3pt's
CS minus 1pt,BB 1pt,
K minus 1pt, Error minus 2
Pitching:
Apperance 1pt, inning 2pt
win 10, loss-6, CG 2pt's shutout 5pt's, save 8pt's, hit minus 1pt, Earned run minus 3, BB minus 1,
K 3pt's, save opp minus 2
I have my draft on Monday night 3/1, is anyone familiar with this format? Who does it favor, Power or speed? Starting or relief? Help!!!!!

If I was you, I'd put together an excel spreadsheet. Use mlb.com or yahoo or something to get the stats, then use a column for a formula to add up the results. You can do it either based on last years numbers, or on projections, but it's gonna be hard to find a place that projects all of those categories. Looks like you got a lot of work ahead of you. :-D

Better get crackin'.

Incidentally, someone posted a link to http://www.rototimes.com in another thread. It seems they have a place on their site where you can get customized dollar rankings for players based on the categories your league uses. Check it out, it rocks. Only thing that's bad for me, they don't have holds or hitter KO's as available stats, so it's useless for my league.

blatant plug - join my 6x6 league

SIMPLIFY Man!!! I am dizzy just looking at those point values!! I don't get it. I wouldn't even consider playing in a league like that.

I joined a league last season with a lot of stat categories and I must say I did not find it interesting, because most times the categories overlap and it wasn't enjoyable at all to me. From what I could tell the league was pretty much inactive which didnt help matters at all either.

-1 per ab? looks like every hitter would be in the negatives just based on at bats alone, plus those -1 for k's. Might as well not start anyone at all

Points for position players starting a game? Points for pitchers making their way to the box score? Seems kind of wacky to me, but different strokes for different folks.

If I were you, I'd try to find a location, like Rototimes, that has projections that can easily be loaded into a spreadsheet. That way you can calculate what each player may accomplish for the upcoming season. I've got a points league that I do this for.

In addition to a "master list" of hitters and pitchers, you may want to have a list for each position. This will make it easier to follow each position and judge for yourself whether to garb the last decent 2B or go for the more prolific OF.

The one thing that stands out to me is 8 points for a save. Three or four saves in a week and you've got yourself 40 from a closer for that week. That's more than you're going to get from most starters unless they two start and win them both. I'd aim for two top notch closers to start with.

Well the 1st thing I did was take the top performer at hitter, sp and closer and it came out:
Pujols 992
Halliday 844
Gagne 913

I then secluded myself for 72 hrs and rated the top 20 at every infield pos. 80 outfield pos. 100 starting pitchers 25 closers. and ranked them if there was an injury in '03 I used '02 (Vlad, RJ) and it was consistent with my initial findings 1)hitters
2)closers
3)starters
However there was some surprises 2nd base Boone 737 points Soriano 563 pts high K's high ab's few bb's and many errors
anyways we drafted last night 20 teams I picked #3

C-CJ, 1B-Helton,
2b Jiminez, 3B Crede
ss Cintron, LF Berkman
CF B Giles, RF Gibbons
Util C Floyd
Starting pitching(my 1st selection coming in the 8th rd) B Myers, Milton, Pavano, Valdez, J johnson
Relief pitching:
Guardado, Mantei, and Rhodes.
I feel pretty good about my team Based on my research I've got 3 of the top 30 point getters
Helton- 922 pts
Giles- 851 pts (2002)
Berkman- 803 pts (2002)
and a 4th in Floyd if he canonly stay healthy. It seems I say that every year. I only hope that my SP which is awful doesn't hurt me to badly.
