Wins vs. Inn. vs. QS

Wins vs. Inn. vs. QS

Postby IronBird » Tue Jul 28, 2009 11:52 pm

H2H; 13 categories, 7 offense, 6 pitching. Avg., HR, RBI, R, SB, BB, OPS/ W, S, Inn, K, Era, Whip.

Do you think 13 categories is an odd number?
Should my league?

a) add Quality Starts and take away Innings.
b) add Quality Starts and take away Innings and W's.
c) add holds.
d) add holds and QS and take away Inngings.
e) something else
f) nothing

(hope this is the right forum for this kind of question, let me know if I'm wrong)

Not a big fan of QS or innings pitched. They are loosely based on performance but usually are a factor in the other categories. Holds adds value to relievers, I have not played with holds but would add a new element to the league.

I would definitely even out the cats whether you remove a hitting category or add a pitching one. We used holds for the first time this year and it's definitely placed value on relievers that wasn't there before. You could consider K/BB or K/9 too if you want to use a percentage stat instead of a cumulative stat.
