Last year was the inaugural season for our 15-team mixed keeper league. We started out with the following categories:
Batting - OBP, Total bases, RBI, R, SB, K
Pitching - QS, S, HD, ERA, WHIP, K
We were not fans of K for hitters. Did not add anything to the enjoyment for us and I think we all pretty much ignored it.
Now that we are considering dumping it, people are saying we need to cut a pitching category to "balance." But I say, what is there to balance? A batter can be a four or five category guy, and we have no problem with that. But at most a pitcher can really only be a four category guy (at one time).
Isn't it reasonable to say that the a) the categories would still be balanced with the removal of K for batters, and b) that WHIP is different enough from ERA that we should keep it?
Thank you for your input!
