Net Saves vs Saves as category

Postby rib217 » Mon Feb 22, 2010 10:27 am

My league commish wants to change the saves category to Net saves this year. I wanted to get thoughts from the cafe on a few different aspects of this.

Do you draft closers differently now or just stick to a traditional don't pay for saves strategy?

Also is this category overkill? We also have losses so as of now a crap closer could potentially give you a L, damage your ERA and WHIP, then by changing to NSV a blown save damages you there as well.

Is this a bad category given our settings?

the problem is that is destroys the value of middle relievers more so than usual since they can't get saves (unless promoted) but they can get blown saves. Now if you were doing a 6x6 with holds it could work.

Since there's really not that many Blown Saves by closers, I don't think you should change your strategy on closers themselves, but it does kill the value of 8th inning arms.

I don't think so. At least the closer isn't rewarded with a W if the team comes back.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
