I am in a head to head 6x6 league.
These are the categories
I am currently trying to talk the guy who runs the league into changing total K's to K's per 9. I have noticed that pitching has really become "less important" in our league. Teams are are stacking their offenses and chasing K's and Wins by picking up pitchers all the time. It seems they think if they can sweep offense or win 5-1, they can squeak out some pitching categories by being waiver wire wh0res, and holding on to 4 junk closers.
I feel that K's per 9 would really limit this. If you establish a strong pitching staff, you would have a good chance of winning L,ERA,WHIP and K's/9. That way if someone wants to pick up 8 pitchers a week, they may be able to get wins, but in most cases their pickups would kill every other pitching categories. I think this also puts a high premium on top of the line closers.
Any input to help sell my case appreciated. Or if you disagree, maybe tell me why. Thanks.
