Ok so I setup a 12 team H2H 5x5 most categories league. Initially I adjusted it from the standard 5x5 by subbing AVG for OPS. I really not a fan of how there is no tangible benefit when a player has an extra base hit that is not a HR and how your top players will be pitched around and pick up some 100+ walks with no benefit either. That and in a H2H matchup the difference between having a .300 week and a .280 is 4 hits and is really not indicative of how well a team has hit.
Well we drafted and of course now half of the league is complaining and I'm trying to come up with a compromise. I really don't want to change it to the standard since most teams went into the draft picking their players based on the rules that were established. The compromise I came up with was breaking up the OPS stat to OBP and SLG% and adding a K/BB as the 6th pitching stat. I did this since it covers every major batting category and really has little affect on someones draft strategy considering all of the stats it affects are one you were looking at when picking players. K/BB could be a killer for some people (me included) if you didn't pick up a high control pitcher like Halladay, Lee, or Haren. Does anyone have any experience with any leagues similar to this setup or any other input?
Batting: Runs, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
Pitching: Ks, Wins, Saves, ERA, WHIP, K/BB
