I appreciate the input, but I'm not sure there is too much strength in that arguement.
In our league (roto) everyone's ERA and WHIP standings are with 2 or 3 places, but the HR leader has the fewest RBI's....a lot of solo HR's I guess
Just because this is true in your league doesn't make it universally true. In my league, for instance, the top 3 guys in HR are all in the top 4 in R, RBI, and H. While not perfectly correllated, I would say if you did a statistical analysis on these stats, you would find a significant positive correlation between them. Same can be said for ERA and WHIP, and many other stat categories. Just because it doesn't always hold true doesn't mean that there is no relation.
So unless your guy wants to only pick one or two stats for hitting and pitching each to determine the points in your league, you probably will run into a lot of redundancy in stat counting. Although I can't imagine a 2x2 being much fun.
