Hmm...this is odd. I was having the EXACT same conversation with a fellow Cafe member today as well.
Basically, I am trying to create a 5X5 league for my college friends and myself. I had the categories as OBP, HR, RBI, R, SB-CS for hitters and the QS, Saves, ERA, WHIP and K for pitchers.
Upon my conversation with JT, I could change it to OBP, SLG, RBI, R, SB-CS for hitters and then QS, Saves, ERA, WHIP and K/9 for pitchers.
Any thoughts on which produces a better 5X5 league? I checked on RotoTimes and both systems don't affect things too much in terms of change.
* As of now, I have it OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB-CS and QS, Saves, ERA, WHIP and K's. I feel OBP>BA since it counts both hits and walks. As for pitchers, K/9 hurts spot-starting and surely helps relievers, but I feel it puts too much emphasis on relievers (I checked a site and using K/9 makes Joe Borowski>Brandon Webb) and QS is more indicative of a SP's performance than wins.
