Scoring for Batting Categories
BA - Batting Average
HR - Home Runs
R - Runs
RBI - Runs Batted In
SB - Stolen Bases
SLG - Slugging Pct
Scoring for Pitching Categories
ERA - Earned Run Average
HD - Holds
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher)
S - Saves
W - Wins
WHIP - Walks + Hits / Inning
I just know that in football little tactics like RB's are a premium 4th team WR's are almost never worth a pick - but know nothing about baseball so looking for some sort of direction.

There's actually not that steep of a dropoff after stud RBs. But thats a whole 'nother story. I'd compare that to 1st base. You've got your top 6(Pujols, Helton, Giambi, Delgado, Sexson, Thome) similar to RBs(Priest, Faulk, Portis, LT, Deuce, Green). Then there's a slight dropoff. Then guys like Sweeney, Huff, Bagwell, Lee similar to the Stephen Davis and Jamal Lewis of RBs. But enough of the comparisons. Just do the draft, use the cheat sheets provided by the site if need be, build a solid team, and come on here if you've got any further questions. Good luck.
