I run a H2H Weekly league which has been 6x6 for the past couple of years but I'm always looking to tweak the settings a bit each year. Recently we've been going with 6 SP and 0 RP for our lineup but the issue I want to remove is making it optimal to just use guys who only start twice in a week (or in other cases try to just reach the min innings limit).
Last year the stats I used were QS, BB, K, Total Bases Against ERA, WHIP. This way we have two ratios, two counting stats that are good as they go up, and two counting stats that are good as they go down. The issue here is that BB,K,TBA can change drastically while QS is very limited thus it made it optimal to try to minimize your innings each week to just reach the innings limit (in essence giving up K, ensuring BB and TBA, having an outside shot at QS, and a chance at the ratios.
I was thinking of possibly replacing QS with IP since it seems sort of like a counter to tBA and obviously more IP/start directly relates to the quality of the pitcher. I was also thinking of the setting the innings limit per week to 6*(#SP-1), where 6 is ~average ip/start and then just multiplying by 1 less than the number of started to help account for rain outs, injuries etc..
Do you have any better suggestions? What are your thoughts on OBPA vs WHIP (Or potentially using neither of these and just using H/9 IP to remove the double counting in WHIP from the BB stat)
