i loved our deeper rosters that we had last year.

as for the stat categories, they are fine with me. i like the addition of having L's to have another negative category, which prevents churning a little bit more.

Well, football season is officially over, time to set the sets on baseball :-D

Rosters last year were fine. In terms of cats, I'm not so keen on losses. My suggestion would be to ditch wins/losses and replace with QS. But then you'd need another cat. I'd say holds but I don't know if I wanna go into that realm of RPs. Maybe K/BB or K/9 but those are kinda redundant with whip/ks.

It's not that big a deal for me. I probably wasn't clear enough but if we just kept last year the same that would be perfectly fine for me. Just tossing out ideas.

Personally I don't like losses, and would much prefer holds.

I'd rather have 5 OF than LF/CF/RF.
