League Scoring

Postby jsbest1977 » Sun Jan 31, 2010 6:20 am

Little league information. 10 team mixed league. head to head schedule, 1 match up per week. 2 divisions.

Currently we have a 9x9 scoring system. I hate it. I am planning on cutting out stats this year, taking baby steps, so going to a 7x7 this year. This is where you guys come on.

I want to ask you, if you had to design a 7x7 scoring, what would you use?

Only thing I will say about it, is that you have to have saves and holds in there. Or you can combine saves/holds into 1 stat. Your call.

Lets hear what you guys would use to have a balanced league with power hitters and speed hitters, relief pitchers vs starters.

Thanks!

I'll tell you what we currently are using later on

Hitting categories will be:

* Batting Average
* Home Runs
* Runs Batted In
* Runs
* Stolen Bases
* On-Base Percentage
* Strike-Outs

Pitching categories will be:

* Wins
* ERA
* WHIP
* Strikeouts
* Saves
* Quality Starts
* Holds

balancing hitting and pitching stats isnt the way to go. you should balance hitting and starting pitching stats so that the most important players in the game have equal weight in the scoring. for far too long ppl have been shorting SP.

OBP, SLG, SB, Run, RBI
Win, QS, Hld, Sv, K, ERA, WHIP

this way players have 5 stats to contribute to and the hitting stats are more accurate and fulfilling. this way we better measure a player's eye at the plate and contact rate, power, speed and run production.

Hello. Am a rookie commish with similar question about league scoring. Am likely going to h2h roto, but I was wondering if there was any commonly used way around the following problem:

Team, HR, SB
A, 8, 1
B, 7, 12

Technically each team would win one category, but it really isn't close. Is it possible to someone account for the disparity?

Also...is it possible to have SB-CS as a category?

Thanks in advance!

Account for the disparity? Yes. You can do points leagues. But most people enjoy the interactive nature of roto. And in a 12-team league, the difference between many and few is significant points.

SB-CS as a category? Depends on where you host your league. The only site that I use for baseball is CBS and I know they have it. Anywhere else... not sure but it should be pretty likely. It's a commonly used statistic.

This isn't bad but I'd replace Strike-Outs for hitters with Total Bases.

What do you guys think about Total bases vs Extra base hits

Wouldn't get me in a twist, although I'd have to take a look at how it effects my projections.

I like this better than the Ks. Negative stats just bother me...

At 7x7 I like the rest of the stats mentioned above (HR/RBI/R/SB/AVG/OBP? and W/K/ERA/WHIP/SV/QS/H)

Two average stats in each which support quality over quantity, and multiple specialist categories (SB/SV/H) promote a mixed team rather than just punting a particular type of player and loading up on another.

I'd be tempted to include a defensive stat if I went higher than 7x7, but the OP is right, after that it just gets ridiculous. 5x5 or 6x6 is probably about the max I would enjoy. After that if you want to play around with the league settings you'd be better off going to a points league.

we have used the following for a few years and like it

AVG, HR, R, RBI, SB, OPS, K
W, L, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP

its H2H w no linit on SP each week...so to stop streaming we use L(and a weekly linit on transactions).
ive always liked holds...adds more fun as you introduce a lot more players that wouldnt normally be used.

some will say that this reduces the value of SP...but it still seems to work fine

and OPS is good for big guys...but K is bad for big guys(generally)...so i think that evens out nicely
