Sure, Cocoa Crisp steals you 50 bases - that value speaks for itself. But he doesn't hit homers, isn't on base very much and we all know RBIs are basically about luck and opportunity. So why think twice about using a more telling offensive stat (OPS)? Bottom line is the guys who contribute in multiple categories are worth the most and I think OPS is more indicative of a good offensive player.

And SP gets drafted way before closers, even marginal SP get taken before closers. Call it the sluggers and starters league, theres nothing wrong with that its just going to draft alot differently than most other leagues. If its power hitters and SP you like, you'll love these settings. Soft tossing, innings eaters like Buerle will get drafted way earlier in your league than others; Ichiro and company get taken rounds later than they will almost everywhere else. Some points leagues SP score more than the best hitters and guys draft accordingly, your league will adjust to the settings you choose, its just not my favorite
