I just can't see valuing just showing up. I would at least like to use stats that reflect the fact that the player did something, anything, that helped his team win. Appearancs rewards a third of an inning where you gave up 6 runs exactly the same as a perfect game. That's just whack.
Well the rationale behind the category is this....if you have fewer appearances, with an innings pitched limit, it implies that your starters went deeper into games (it took them fewer games to reach the IP limit, which ours is 1200 innings for the season). Which is why I wanted to know if you get points for having the most or the least appearances, because the guys who have the pitchers go the deepest will have the fewest appearances to make up that 1200 IP....
That would be good because we want to reward pitchers who go deep into games, but also reward the Johan Santana's who go 8 innings every start, but not usually nine ya know?
So does anybody know? points for most appearances, or fewest appearances?
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.
