Default 2016 Fantasy Baseball

I heard from Hugh but is anyone else interested in playing Fantasy Baseball this year?

If we can get 10 from the forum I will be happy to run a forum only league and if not I can help pull in additional people into a league to fill up slots.

Let me know.

We will see if we can make this work. I set it up as 12 team max league so 8-10 to draft.

It is similar to what we have played in the last 3 years with Head to Head but I did change the categories a little.

Hitting:
Runs/Hits/HR/Stolen Bases/Strikeouts/OPS

Pitching:
ERA/WHIP/K's per 9/Pitch Count/Quality Starts/Saves+Holds

If anything I would say send something to Adam for the troops if you would like but we will most likely be filling from outside of the board so for this year it is fun and bragging rights.

I think we can get to 10 pretty easily Pete.

Pete, Don, Dan and Hugh send my a PM with your email and I will send an invite because it seems like the link isn't letting you join.

Any chance we can do the Sunday before or Tuesday after the Monday for the draft? I have mandatory training that night. If not I can autodraft.

Why are there no waivers? I think 1 day would be good.

Also a bit strange not having wins and rbi as point categories.

Default Re: 2016 Fantasy Baseball

I am OK with 1 day waivers if we want them.

I changed out Wins for Quality Starts to try to take the relief pitchers blowing a lead out of the equation. Pitch Count ended up being a random category since walks are covered in WHIP along with hits. K/9 to help balance the pitching .... Saves+Holds. I set a minimum innings pitched at 40 but should it be lower or there at all with pitch count as a category?

I went back and forth on RBI and Strikeouts and ended up more on the Strikeouts counting against hitters to balance out HR.

Thoughts?

I'm alright with quality starts over wins. Not sure about pitch count and how that is a positive or negative stat. Personally I think rbi is an important stat when evaluating player worth. I think having both rbi and Ks are fine.

If we add in rbi then we also need another pitching category (two to be able to take out pitch count which I am not thrilled with either just something that wasn't in one of the other stats).

Don't worry about it. It will add a new way of thinking to my game. Don't need to change everything up to get one stat in.

We needed one more pitching category to balance the hitting and so it was one that wasn't included somehow in the other stats.

I am really open to suggestions on changing this one.
