    I'll send you the league id and password tonight. I've already got two other diehard fans from work that will be signing up this weekend.

    Yes, you are correct. Players like Chase Utley and Hanley Ramirez are very valuable to have.

    Well, last year, Heath Bell had a very, very good year. He had a low whip, baa, and slga and also pitched a lot of innings (for a relief pitcher).

    For pitchers, you would want to look at points per inning pitched, and then see how much talent is available at that position. You have to take into account position scarcity when doing your draft.

    Point values

    >> Your hitting numbers are somewhat reasonable.

    Yeah, they are based on linear weights. I'm not using decimal points, however, I think I probably may change that. Yahoo doesn't give us outs for offense, so I have to use AB, which kinda sucks.




    >> Your pitching numbers, I'm not sure. Not sure that the balance is correct either.

    The pitching numbers are inverse of the hitting numbers, except with pitching they give us IP instead of ab, so that's why the values of the events are 1 less for pitching.



    >>closers don't get their due.

    I try to stay away from team dependant stats like saves, wins, and losses,etc. I forgot to mention that team IP is going to be limited to 1400 or 1500. Actually, I think the reliever points are fairly well distributed. Check out the point totals leaders below for hitters, starters, and releavers. (using 2007 data)




    >> I posted a relevant thread here, which some may find useful:

    I'm going to read through that thread tonight. I'm always tinkering with the points formulas. BTW, I bought "The Book" some time ago. I love it.

    Your pitching numbers, I'm not sure. Not sure that the balance is correct either. (Not to say that they are or are not.)

    I notice you don't have K numbers for pitchers, and closers don't get their due.

  • Managers wanted for serious Yahoo fantasy baseball league

    I am looking for 9 more serious baseball fans to form an ongoing 12 team yahoo fantasy baseball league. I want this to be a high quality league based on sabermetric scoring principles with keepers, etc. I also want members that will be dedicated and enthusiastic, not only this year, but in the coming years. Also, all suggestions for ways to improve the league (scoring, positions, etc.) are greatly appreciated and encouraged.

    If you are interested, please email me at [email protected]. The live draft will be on Mon Mar 31 7:00pm CDT. Below is some information about the league.

    * -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Positions : C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, RF, UTIL, SP, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, RP, RP, 4 Bench spots

    Scoring (Offense)
    AB -1
    1B 4
    2B 6
    3B 8
    HR 10
    SB 2
    CS -3
    BB 2
    HBP 2

    Scoring (Pitching)
    IP 6
    BB -2
    HBP -2
    SB -2
    1BA -3
    2BA -5
    3BA -7
    HR -9
    QS 15

    After the first year, you can designate 3 keepers on your roster for the following year.

    The draft order will be random the first year, after that, it will be in reverse order of the previous year's finish.

    Trade reviews are by league vote.

    Thinking about offering engraved bobble head trophies for top 3 finishers.
