My main league uses home run-saving catches as a category.

You really need to get fist pumps in there, if you want any sense of legitimacy in your league.

We talked about adding fist pumps or CEQ, but we didn't want to risk the integrity of the league. We're going into the 9th year of the league. It's a points-based two-cat scoring system: home run-saving catches and strike-'em-out-throw-'em-out double plays.

The way Gonzo is playing, you might want to resurrect those trade talks.

He should rebound in the second half and still post 35-40 hrs

He might if the Padres leave anyone on the team for him to play with. Hard to hit homers when the pitcher is throwing an intentional walk. There's really no reason at all for anyone to pitch to A-Gon.

No, all he needs is his BABIP to return to a reasonable level. He's gone on a wildly unlucky streak. It appears he's bottomed out and is on his way back, though, so owners shouldn't be worried.

You should consider adding balks for pitchers. Not as a negative, but as a positive. Mike Pelfrey becomes a 1st Rounder. In fact, the entire Mets pitching staff goes real early then.

And if you add "Inability to hold a lead" , just draft the Mets bullpen and sit back - your job is done here. ;-7

I think it's nice to hear about someone other than the Yankees, Sox, and Manny on ESPN for once.

They can be very annoying but I agree it is nice to see the talk about a different team that isn't on the east coast.
