i don't ever want to play in a league like that...
just looking at it -- there is no balance between hitting and pitching, hitters are more valuable.
H are unnecessery if you are counting 1B,2B,3B and HR
E are a judgement call usually and a terrible stat
sho are a totally random stat
you don't count hits against pitchers?

We have the CG SHO category in my H2H league and it is a very fun stat. Pitchers, like Mulder, Schmidt or Livan Hernandez, who can go very deep in games have a higher ranking compared to guys with similar stats who only go 6/7 innings. As the other guys said it is kinda like a BONUS category.

yea your right beckett,oswault, c.zambrano are terrible draft picks
Those are good pitchers but none of them are really "CG specialists" like Mulder or Schmidt. I think CGs are a cool wild card category. I was pretty psyched to score an 8 inning CG from AJ Burnett last week.
complete games is complete luck in a H2H league. I do not think that is something you can draft. I play in a Yahoo League with 13 cats per week. So the CG catagory usually evens itself out by the end of the year. Most weeks teams tie 0-0. It is kind of cool as a tie breaker though just to talk trash to someone when you win 7-6 because of a complete game. I would never ever use it in a roto league though. That could be a ten point difference.
