Opinions on my 5x5 please

Postby Thien » Mon Feb 21, 2011 7:03 pm

I decided to change up Yahoo's default and took out AVG and replaced it with OPS. I also took out Wins and replaced it with QS. Do you guys think this setup is ok? Or should I go 6x6, keep both AVG and W, and add both QS and OPS?

Quality starts
K or K/9 or K/BB (undecided on which of these 3, suggestions?)

I think replacing W with QS is fine, but I would personally go OBP over OPS as a replacement for AVG. OPS gives more weight to power hitters, who I think are already weighed heavily enough in the traditional 5x5 setup. OBP rewards both contact and discipline without giving bonus points for power. I don't think it's the end of the world if you go with OPS, but that's my two cents.

Just go with "K", as a quantitative stat. You've already asked the rest of your league to go with "hybrid stats" on a couple of occasions. Let them add things together and make things easier.
