Your biggest challenge is going to be finding a site that supports this format. Also, 6-day matchups would seem like a huge logistical pain- it'd be hard to know at any given time when your next scoring period starts. You could probably do a "pick your start" format by manually adjusting scores, but that generates a lot of work for the commish.
On a more high-minded note, I question whether this:brock middlebrook wrote:I had a few thoughts on how to make the H2H format more realistic
is even a worthy goal at all. Fantasy Baseball is not baseball, but a separate game played with MLB stats.
We are trying 2 week matchups throughout the entire playoffs in my main league this year, shortening the regular season to 18 weeks, to see how it shakes out. I'm pretty excited for it.Ender wrote:I think it would be easier to go with 2 week matchups. I always feel like the better team has a better shot in the finals and the rest of the playoffs are just random and the big difference is that the finals are usually 2 weeks long. When you get an all star break week or the first week of the season the results are more or less just random.

For example: playing H2H, incorporating Holds and fielding metrics. It brings enjoyment in that it mimics the decisions real MLB general managers have to face. Real MLB general managers with "better" teams sometime lose regular season series to "lesser" teams. They need bullpen depth. And they need good fielders.
It may be a separate game, but some of us like to play it as close to the real game as we can - a worth goal indeed if that is what you like.
