Stat catigories

Postby Cubsfan2803 » Sun Feb 15, 2009 3:28 pm

I was setting up a yahoo 10 - 12 man head to head league and I selected all of the stats that I thought were good idea's. I think I over did it because I have 19 categories. Out of these which stats best show a players worth? The league is going to start C,1B,2B,3B,SS, 3 OF, 2Util, 2SP,2RP,3P,6bench and 2 DL.

R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG,
W, SHO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, QS, BSV

thanks

Personally, I am a traditionalist, so take this for what it's worth - I think any more than 6x6 (hitting and pitching) is just too much.

I think you can easily eliminate H, 2B, 3B and combine OBP and SLG to get OPS, leaving you with R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG and OPS

and with pitching:

I would eliminate SHO, K/BB, BSV and roll with either QS or Holds as a sixth category alongside W, K, ERA, WHIP and Saves

Hope this helps man ;-D


What he said. Don't overcomplicate things.

3B's and SHO are bad ideas. Triples are pretty rare so your going to see a lot of teams randomly win that category each week. SHO are even more random and you will have most weeks end with a tie in that category, only occasionally will you see a team pull out a W in that category.

on base percentage plus slugging percentage.

depending on what kind of players they are(whether they hit for power or not) a good OPS is anywhere between, .700 and could go over 1.000 (real elite power hitters)

One caveat - I would say a "good" OPS would be more in the .800+ range personally ;-)

Don't get rid of K/BB!! Seriously that's easily the best pitching cat on there.

I would:

Hitting - HR, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG
Pitching - K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, SV (I guess, I mean I really don't like any of these aside from K/BB and Ks, but I guess these are the best on the list).
