Even -.25 would be a big penalty against free swingers, but -1 would make guys like Reynolds unownable and put Stanton below 80th in rank and I feel like that would be travesty.
I'm in the league, and while at first what you said made me think, "Yeah... -1 for a K seems to high based on the other points." if you look at the projected totals using the league's scoring Stanton would be the #15th OF and #36 overall.
And that's with a 183 projected Ks.
ESPN has Stanton as the #21 OF in a Points League.
So, I don't think it's as
skewed as you were saying.
Reynolds would be the #129 overall hitter. #18 at 3B, which is exactly where ESPN has him ranked in a standard points league.
