23?!?!?!
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?


eeek...

I pushed for less hitting stats this year. I do hate errors, too. Actually the pitching is the key to our league. A lot of the times the offensive is pretty even.

Not even? There are 12 hitting stats and 10 pitching stats. In our league having balance is key. You must score across the board.

In the league I am making, I added a "complete game-shutout category". It's more of a bonus pts thing (have no-hitter and perfect game too) but those are pretty rare today.

is it points or H2H or roto ?.. I could maybe see it in a points league, but no in anything else.

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.
