  • This is at Fantrax, with DEEP scoring and stats. Each team MUST start a pitcher at least 5 times a week, but only the first 6 starts are counted--no streaming of 10 pitchers in a week to pick up cheap counting stats. Only 2 teams for the championship, but it's a two-week battle. Stats include sabermetrics such as DICE, runs created, wOBA, etc. It's a free redraft league with the live draft on Sun. March 15 at 10 AM ET. The draft snakes for the first 2 rounds, then the order is locked in with the 2nd round orders. So if you have pick #1 overall, you get picks 48, 72, 96, etc. The draft is set, so you will get either pick slots 13, 36, 60, 84, etc., or the slot that picks 19, 30, 54, 78, etc.

    No, I would not! But I don't like PED guys. He might have some fantasy value if he ever gets healthy. He says he needs 20 games and he just did game one.

  • Fiona Fiona Jul 3, 2013 12:34 AM Flag

    The transaction limit is 4 moves per week, so you wouldn't be able to make such huge changes right away. By the way, you would not want to drop 14 guys right off the bat. It's a 20 team league with 24-man rosters, so the top 500 or so players are already taken. I don't think you would want to change any of the hitters on this team--at least not in free agency. Maybe you would want to trade a couple of them. However, the pitching is pretty bad on this team. I think you could definitely drop 2-3 of the starting pitchers and probably a couple of relievers as well. (Even so, this team does have five DL starting pitchers, so there is a big chance to improve once they get healthy.) But there isn't a lot available at SP in this league. Here's a list of the available starting pitchers to see what's out there:
    Luis Mendoza
    Jeremy Bonderman
    John Danks
    Juan Nicasio
    Koehler
    Volquez
    Lannan
    Pelfrey

  • Fiona Fiona Feb 25, 2013 11:08 AM Flag

    Now 14 teams in...I think there's some ignorance and muddied thinking about my 27-category league. The stat categories are INTENTIONALLY somewhat redundant. The purpose is to weight some of the categories which are more important, such as slugging: we add HR, SLG%, OPB, and total bases so that pure power hitting is around 15% of the scoring. There are tons of other details and examples, but I don't have space here. In a 5X5 league, it's very hard to apply nuance to the scoring system. In most 5X5 leagues, relief pitching is badly shortchanged with only one category. By the same token, the stolen base is wildly exaggerated. The bottom line is that with 27categories at about 3.7% each, I can just the weight of each category more finely than you can if you're changing things in chunks of 10% at a time. These 3.7% chunks create leagues where luck plays a smaller part and randomness is minimized. With the 27-category league, you can also provide some scoring to minor categories that would be overrepresented at 10% in a 5X5 league--or more likely not represented at all due to the small number of categories. For example, I always add plate appearances and relief appearances because those are important parts of the game. (I can hear the chuckling, so for those of you who don't believe me, do yourself a favor and research which players have had the most at-bats over the last five years. You'll find that every single one of the top 10 has been to multiple All-Star games: Ichiro; Prince Fielder; Adrian Gonzalez; Derek Jeter; Miguel Cabrera; Robinson Cano; Albert Pujols; Ryan Braun; Michael Young; and Mark Teixeira!) In summary, repetition and near redundancy reduce randomness and add depth and nuance to the fantasy game. The categories are SOMEWHAT redundant but not identical, so it's possible to split them. To give an simplified example, in a 5X5 league, a close contest in every category could conceivably go 8-2, 9-1, or even 10-0. The exact same performances in a 27-cat league would be more likely to go 20-7, 19-8, etc (which is better because total games don't matter! It's winning percentage that matters!) More categories also means that elements of the game that are nonexistent in 5X5 are accurately represented.
