Not really sure. Felt like forever since I'd been here when I came back and figured I'd get a fresh start. Can't believe it's almost been 8 years since I first joined... I was a teenager! Went and dusted off the avatar for old time's sake.

Skin Blues wrote:You can weight the categories to account for the skew. The recommended split that I've seen work is bumping HR up by about 35% and dropping SB by 25%. BA was also dropped by 20%, and RBI bumped up 10%. These are arbitrary weights that were concluded by people far smarter than me, so I can't fully explain the way they were derived. Using a 6x6 scoring system would obviously affect things, but it's a starting point at least.
