Anyway, what do you think of taking BB/9 out, and putting WHIP back in?
Pitching: IP, K/9, WHIP, ERA, SV
I'm opposed to having 20% of your pitching categories go towards IP in general. I understand your reasoning, I just feel it is better suited to use something else.
A category you may want to investigate using is K/BB. Then you could replace BB/9 or WHIP with something like SLG Against, if that's available for use. Then you're rewarding high rate K pitchers, pitchers who may not K as many batters but don't BB even fewer, the K/9 still helps boost relievers then, as well.
0rt, i enjoy the feedback, but can you tell me why you're against 20% of pitching-scoring going to IP?
I think IP is a very important "skill". Durable, effective, efficient pitchers rack up IP totals pretty quickly. THe best pitchers in the game lead the league in IP, I think it's works in that regard, and also helps balance the rate stats.
If i'm using K/9, SLG%, ERA, SV, an owner can just meet the minimum IP requirement, and never start a non-Closer pitcher again.
thanks for the continued feedback.

As any rotisserie league participant knows, in most leagues HRs and SBs are categories of equal weight ...
Since we can prove that a SB is a less common occurrence than a HR, we can also infer that a SB is more valuable. ...
