    Ideal League Settings

    one more thing: pitching has 10 spots: 4 starters 2 closers and rest as pitchers (with a team minimum of innings pitched).

      I'm big into baseball (and hockey) yahoo leagues. Rated an all-star.
      Here is the ideal league: 16-20 teams - categories offense: ave, hits, r, rbi, bb, doubles, hr, sb (and possibly for fun Ks - just to keep everyone honest lol). Including triples and other lesser stat categories make it too cumbersome and mundane. This scoring involves therefore all kinds of hitters including lead-off guys, power hitters and the 7th/8th batters occasionally. Pitchers: w (and possibly losses for fun again), ave, whip, k, saves and Holds. Holds are good because now you are involving all typs of pitchers - including middle relievers. These stat categories are most realistic.
      Rosters: each team gets a 25-man roster like MLB.
      Counters: c,1st,2nd,3rd,ss, 3-outfielders and a DH (just like MLB). Pitching counters: 4-starters, 2 closers, 4-relief pitchers (with a team minimum innings pitched).
      Then each owner keeps and grows their team year after year. We have an initial draft, then use the waiver wire to pick up players thereafter. Or we could ave a protected list of 15-20 players from year to year, and draft the remaining roster spots. Trades allowed till July 15th or so (the most difficult time of the season since unbalanced trades are always proposed and often accepted). This is where a strong, fair commissioner is required.
      If you create this ideal type league, I will join, know of a couple other serious owners that would join and will even help run it if you need.
