    OK well I'd like to be on top of the waiting list if that isn't a problem. This league sounds like money especially with the prospect part of it.

      DJP I looked into the hold/saves counterpart and it would definitely at a twist. There were guys I never heard of that scored more points than Kerry Wood. Hah..

        Yeah.. guys like Phil Hughes and Matt Guerrier would have more value than crappy closers. May be the best bet if we are going to do Roto (which I like more than h2h because it's extremely hard to find a good, fair, balanced scoring system).

          I am looking at the scoring system in ESPN's standard points scoring system for an AL only league.

          It all checks out I think. It's pretty simplified scoring, but it seems to work.

          I suggest you set up a mock league to see for yourselves. Using the ESPN 2010 projections, you can get a great idea for what to expect.

            Yeah that's what I've been doing. I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with Matt Gurrier being a top 10 reliever...haha...

              I made double plays worth 2 points and Aaron Hill became the 2nd most valuable player in the league...

                    Personally I think that's a terrible idea, but if you want to try it....

                      It isn't as bad of an idea as you think. Trust me.

                        you clearly under estimate our Rutgers power.

                          Hmmm well I'm not sure how we can work that put Scotty. It's a great idea but I'm not sure how feasible. We really just need to open up our own Rutgers sports bar and we're good.

                              So the formula I've put in lists these as the projected top 5 players:

                              1) A-Rod
                              2) Mark Texeira
                              3) Dustin Pedroia
                              4) CC Sabathia
                              5) Carl Crawford

                              It's pretty good actually. The closers are still the top relievers, but mid-relievers aren't far behind. It rewards OBP probably more than power, but in league like this that's not such a bad thing.

                              Total Bases, Runs, RBI, Sacrifices, BB = 1 point
                              Stolen Bases = 2 points
                              GIDP, Errors = -1 point
                              Caught Stealing, Strikeout = -.5 point

                              Outs = .7 points
                              Wins = 5 points
                              Saves = 5 points
                              Appearances = 1 point
                              Holds = 3 points
                              Strikeouts = 0.7 points
                              Hits, BB = -0.3 points
                              ER = -2 points
                              Pickoffs = 1 point

                              It looks more complicated than it is.

                                Why the usage of obscure stats like sacrifice and pickoffs?

                                BF, Was there something you didn't like with ESPN's default for Points leagues?
