In the Official Glenn-Waggoner Rules they list a tiebreaker that our league has always used. The title was decided one year on this. = Between the two of them, the higher in each category gets two points and the lower gets one point. The total of that for all categories decides the higher in the standings. If it is still tied take total At Bats and add to it Triple Innings Pitched. The higher of this number is higher in the standings.

We use the traditional roto tiebreaker, too, for what it's worth.

First place came down to a tie breaker, mck?? Wow.

We run a NL only league. That same year there was a Monday playoff between two NL teams that were tied. The tie occured on Sunday and it turned out that the Monday had a chance to break the tie. It caused all kind of interest in the league, but our two Fantasy teams remained tied after Monday.

Thanks. Step one makes perfect sense. Step two does not. If it takes you more AB's and more IP to get the same results, your team is not better.
