Draft question in a 6x5 league

Postby Rizzo » Tue Feb 22, 2005 11:36 pm

If I am in a league that has 6 categories for hitters and only 5 categories for pitchers, wouldn't it make sense to draft more hitters than normal before taking a pitcher? You would have an advantage at 6 categories rather than 5. Just trying to use some logic.

The way I figure, Ichiro is looking like a dominant figure in this type of league. Where would you take Ichiro in a draft for a league like this.

This scoring is kind of redundant in doing hits and average (hits/at bat). At any rate, power hitters will be devalued a bit in favor of players like Ichiro. Obviously hitters like Pujols aren't really hurt because he gets boat loads of hits, but Barry Bonds will be hurt here over the typical 5x5 as his average is good but hits are few. As a matter of fact, BB will definitely not be worth his first/early second round value. Avoid him in this draft. If people seem to be loading up too much on hitting, go ahead and load up on the pitchers, but I don't think this one extra category should change things all that much.
If you have any impact on scoring system, I would suggest using on base percentage instead of average, or walks in place of hits.

Ichiro is the most valuable player in your draft, aside from maybe - maybe - Pujols.. I'd focus on getting high hit guys for the first 5-6 rounds, minimum, though. When you have two categories that so obviously overlap, you have to focus on them.

Yeah, hitters are worth more because they contribute 6 and not 5. Go for high hit guys like Pujols, Ichiro, Vlad, etc.
