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.
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.

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.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

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.
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
