Total Bases? I like the quality starts idea but not the total bases. TB favors the power hitters too much. I say we just stick with the standard 5x5.

What about On Base % instead of TB?

I want something to sort of guage productivity. Otherwise a lot of power-less hitters have zero value in this league, and I want it to be a pretty deep league.

Many have said that in the past who are now lying along the waste side...

Last year newcomers MaxV, Nerv and bsaza thought they'd take it.

The year before, newcomers Keak and Creek thought they'd take it.

This year, the newcomers are you and PF. So good luck to you both.



I think we should make the league a 12 man league... Just like the first year in 2005.

You OK with quality starts? I want 6 hitting and 6 pitching categories . . .

Quality Starts seems to be the best indicator of overall pitching performance among the other stats.

Xiomera

...and what exactly are those OTHER stats?

Trust me, QS is the best of the group.

The others are mostly stupid stuff like Pickoffs, Balks (which makes no sense to track), and Complete Games.

I guess the only other pitching stat I might consider would be Holds, but that is a pretty dumb stat too. It's only purpose would be to give middle relievers some relevance to the league.



I think we are gonna go with:

Hitters - Runs, Home Runs, Runs Batted In, Stolen Bases, Batting Average, OBP

Pitchers - Wins, Saves, Strikeouts, Earned Run Average, WHIP, Quality Starts

Quality starts suck because they are not common. I don't think we should have it. If there are no other good pitching stats and you want to keep it even, then take off OBP.

DJP, you've done this before... What's the norm?

yodabear
02-14-2008, 09:14 PM
Can I have Pujols?

djp
02-15-2008, 12:37 AM
The norm is 5x5, which is BA, HR, RBI, R, SB, W, ERA, WHIP, SV, K.

I'm all for this. Let's not get funky in our first year of doing roto.

djp
02-15-2008, 10:39 AM
Actually, I agree now. A lot of the people in this league haven't ever done Roto before so playing 5x5 probably isn't a bad idea for this year.

Xiomera
02-15-2008, 01:30 PM
OK, 5x5 it is.

I will change the settings on Yahoo this weekend.


And yoda, yes you can have Pujols if I can have Cabrera.

Question:

Which is better? Using Strikeouts as a category, or using K's/9 innings as a category?

Hmmmmm.....I kinda like K's/9

Xiomera
02-17-2008, 12:41 PM
Hmmmmm.....I kinda like K's/9

I tend to agree. K's depends too much on Innings Pitched.

I want DJP to weigh in . . . he is the Roto master.

D-Unit
02-17-2008, 12:52 PM
Is there a limit on IP? There better be.

Xiomera
02-17-2008, 01:01 PM
Is there a limit on IP? There better be.

Yes

Limit on games played for hitters too.

djp
02-17-2008, 01:49 PM
Just stick with K's, relievers already have the ERA/SV categories locked down.

toonsterwu
02-17-2008, 05:30 PM
I think K's make more sense as well unless you can adjust the other pitching categories to balance things out. Now, if you decided to go all rate, then sure, with wins and saves balancing out starting/relieving values.

Xiomera
02-17-2008, 07:32 PM
K's it is.

Is that too early?

My only concern is that injuries could strike and alter players stock.

But I am not opposed to starting early if that is the consensus.

Woot will be serving as the all-important buffer between D-Unit and I.

I hope everyone is content with their draft position. In last year's draft, 4 of the 10 players taken in Rd. One were later to be dealt to another team, as well as four second rounders . . . expect massive roster shake-ups.

We can always text him on his phone. We've done that before. Same goes for anyone else.

Since he's a Sox fan can we just give him Manny Ramirez with the first pick and keep going. I mean there's no way that he takes a Yankee first.... right? :rolleyes:

Dude, I am sorry this has started off slowly. I hope you'll understand about my delay. We did wait on you to pick for several hours yesterday, but all is well.

The reason we are doing the draft like this is because I wanted to ensure that everyone got the team they drafted personally. I don't like being in leagues that have several auto-picked teams. And let's face it, there was absolutely no chance we could have all attended a Live draft at the same time. We have members spanning several time zones and countries.

This will pick up, and its not like we are in a hurry, with still 3 weeks to the beginning of the season.

Instead of Asians, I have gone with a different theme this year.

toonsterwu
03-05-2008, 02:56 PM
Brandon Phillips has to be an intriguing option. I was tempted to jump for him ahead of Big Papi with my usual middle of the field drafting. What intrigues me is this - What is the impact of Phillips hitting 4th? Does that diminsih the number of steals? Will Dunn's all or nothing approach impact him? How does Junior being ahead impact Brandon's opportunities?

toonsterwu
03-05-2008, 02:59 PM
No, Toonster had a shot to take Soriano and passed on him.

I was sure he'd take him.

I tend to go middle of the field first, which is why I started with Rollins. I liked Rollins steady increase in production. Even if he levels out, should be one of the top shortstops. I wanted to go 2nd base next, with Upton or Phillips, but couldn't pull the trigger on Upton and was worried about Phillips role in the cleanup spot. So I went Big Papi, which I think is understandable. After that, I wanted to go 2nd base, and was leaning that way, but decided that there's better 2nd base depth than there has been in recent years, and after looking around, figured a healthy Aramis should do much better in the 4 or 5 spot with an improved top of the lineup from the Cubs. Short of it is, I tend to wait on OF and 1st unless the value is absolutely ovewhelming.

Anyhow, I should be around at 6 or 7 this evening.

I think Tulo's going to be fine and I don't think this is too high. He plays a high level position, plays in a good lineup, and has a top skillset.

Give me a couple minutes to look things over, although I don't expect to take that long.
