Commissioner Corner Message Board
Yahoo default, I believe, are weeks 23, 24, and 25. Do you find it is better to bump them up a week to 22, 23, and 24? Do teams "sit" players before the playoffs like in football? I don't recall this being a problem in baseball, but a manager in our league was suggesting moving them up to weeks 22, 23, and 24.
What do most of you guys with 6 playoff teams do?
It seems like a vast majority of leagues on here are "keeper" leagues. Doesn't anyone like to re-draft every year? I think planning for the draft, and being surprised what team you end up with is half the fun. I like having access to all players, and can't imagine, say the top 36 players, being locked up. It also seems like it could get out of balance, where one team manages to have better keepers than the rest, so other teams start at a disadvantage right off the bat.
I have never played in a keeper league, and maybe I'm missing out. Are they really that much better than re-draft leagues?
Can someone look over these settings and give feedback? Good? Bad? This is a 10 team, H2H league.
Batters Stat Categories:
Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)
Pitchers Stat Categories:
Wins (W), Losses (L), Home Runs (HR), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)
I was wondering if Xtra Base Hits might fit better than Total Bases. I'm not sure?
Our league has done one year of Roto, and one year of H2H. We like H2H better, and plan on having a 10 team league again this year. We had 9 hitting & pitching categoties last year as follows.....
Runs (R), Doubles (2B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Wins (W), Saves (SV), Home Runs (HR), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS), Blown Saves (BSV)
I am looking for feedback from much more experienced players on how to improve this. I am not a big fan of things like OPS or WHIP...... basically mathmatical equation categories. Yeah, they might tell you more about how a player performs, but they are boring to follow.
1. Does having both Total Bases (TB) and Home (HR) give too much of an advantage to home run hitters? Last year we added doubles to give a little more credit over guys that just hit singles, but it was unfair to someone that hit a Triple. But..... Triples were just not worthy of being their own category.
2. Does Holds (HLD) deserve to be its own category? Should it be lumped in with Net Saves + Holds? ...or just abandoned altogether?
3. Did we have any must-have categories missing?
Any advice is much appreciated.
