6x6 opinions please

Postby erknjerk » Fri Mar 19, 2004 3:49 am

do you like this setup?

Offense: R,H,HR,RBI,SB,BB
Pitching: W,SV,H,K,ERA,WHIP

I guess I'm asking about the pitching cat H. I think it might be just like whip.

I really don't like IP as a category, and in fact in my 6x6 there was a revolt when the commish used it. We're now using Holds and OBS as the two extra categories. This is my first year in a 6x6, so I hope that those work out.

I play in a league that uses avg.,hr,rbi,runs,sb,oba and then simply uses the 5 standard pitching cat. but multiplies the value of them by 1.2

This makes hitting and pitching equal and is a kind of 6 x (5x1.2)

Obviously this doesn't work if you are setting up a yahoo league. We use TQstats and they work it into our roto scoring.

It's fine like it is except change BB to OBP.

Finding a 6th pitching category is trickier than it is for hitting. I agree with wolf that holds aren't a bad option, but it does de-emphasize starting pitching. Hbj's suggestion to multiply by 1.2 also works.

Basically, it's a matter of taste. H does give you some overlap with whip, but there's nothing inherently wrong with it. If your league likes this option best, that's the way to go.

We are doing 6x6 also! Were Using BC (Base Count) as our added offensive cat. , and QS (Quality Starts) for pitching. Also doing 2 W - L instead of wins. What do you like/dislike about these? AND I figure starters over relievers with QS catagory.

What players should I add extra value to or will lose value vs the 5x5 system? My Draft is Saturday!

What is (2 W - L)?

My league 6x(5x1.2) also uses net wins if that is what you are referring to. We also use net saves.

I'm running a 6x6 league also, but instead of OBP, I decided to use OPS as the 6th offensive category (with hold being the 6th pitching category). I like this since it not only gives you credit for walks, but also for extra base hits.
