As much as I like Yahoo, they don't stay open for fantasy baseball all year long. I've proposed some changes to my league format, but am not sure Yahoo will support them.
In particular, I'd like to replace the 'Saves' category with 'Saves + Holds'.* Anyone know whether Yahoo allows that as a category in roto? How flexible is Yahoo with creating categories? Are you locked in to their options, or can you create your own metrics? For example, if I wanted to create a category that ranked teams based on '2*Saves + Holds' could I do that?
*I want to ditch 'Saves' as a stand-alone category because I'm sick of how it distorts the value of pitchers. Half the fights in my league concern whether or not some crappy closer is being over-valued in a trade (answer: typically no, because it's an easy way to gain points, even if the pitcher is horrendous). Combining saves and holds in a single category dilutes the value of the save and increases the value of good MRs, helping resolve some of the artificial scarcity that inflates the value of crappy closers. If you want to discuss the value of 'Saves' as a category great, but please do it in another thread.
