what are the cats - thats going to answer the question. From what I understand, triples are a cat, so that alone would make crawford much more valuable than Teix, and when combined with the advantage of it being a H2H league... Crawford becomes the easy choice. The question here is catagorical scarcity - there were 6 people who had double digit triples - and Crawford has 19. Next best - and here's who you want to target, nj - Chone Figgins who had 17. Noone else had more than 12, and only 35 people had more than 5. When you have different cats like triples, this sort of thing must be factored in. Crawford by a mile because of the triples - he's like Bonds in an OBP league.

The site is down now, but I'm pretty sure the offensive categories are:

Runs, singles, doubles, triples, homers, RBIs, stolen bases, fielding pct

I'm pretty sure that's what they were. That's why I was thinking of Crawford. He scored about as many runs as Teixiera, but is a lock for 60 stolen bases - and even 15 triples would easily win me that category a lot during the year.

Keep in mind this is a keeper league, but both guys are young. Texieria plays on a much better offesnive team, obviously. But Crawford will give me every category except homers & RBIs. Finding a good 1B at a deep position like 1B will much easier. Although on the flip side I could probably keep Tex and find a Podsednik/ Figgins type player in the later rounds to provide steals and triples.

I'm torn!

Oh, then its ARod and Crawford if triples are a category. Those are some weird categories too. Make sure to get Figgins, gets mad triples.

What's so weird about the categories?

I'm leaning towards that as well. Maybe I'll get lucky and snag Texieria on the run in the 4th round.
