  • Correlation between HR and OPS

    Im trying to convince members of my fantasy baseball league to use OPS instead of HR for a category for next season. Does anyone now of the correlation between HR and OPS? Also, I want to find the leaders in HR the last few years and see how there HR numbers compared to OPS. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks,

        I like to balance counting stats and rate stats...so I do the classic runs created multiplication couplet...TB and OBP. TB the counting stat, OBP the rate...multiply them and you get classic RC.

        My favorite set-up is TB/OBP/SB/SB%/TC/F%/K for hitters, ERA/HR/KpBB/K/W/Sv/HLD

        That covers the key components of offense, the DIPS components of pitching and forces you to use middle relievers, closers, starting pitchers, full time position players and useful platoon guys in a balnaced, meaningful way (That's why TC...to prevent people from benefiting as much from using their DH at first base).

          Fielding Percentage in Fantasy Baseball??

          There's no Fielding Percentage in Fantasy Baseball.

          When Rogers Hornsby was my manager, do you think he let us use fielding percentage in our fantasy baseball leagues (we used to keep track of the stats using boxscores in newspapers and make trades during those long train rides).

          Huh? No. He never let us use Fielding Percentage in our fantasy baseball leagues? Know why?

          Because there is no fielding percentage in fantasy baseball.

          Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

            I would prefer something other than F% as well...however, you need to have a balance between rate states and counting stats or else people draw value from bad players who nonetheless start every day rather than constructing teams in more realistic ways.

            TB and OBP are a very good pair...I'd recommend BA as one possible third stat since a walk is less valuable than a single and counting BA and OBP forces you to get contact hitters as well as guys who draw walks...but singles also count in TB so there's a certain amount of double-counting there.

            I could see going with:

            BA
            OBP
            TB
            SB
            SB%
            TC
            DP (fielding, not batting)

            ERA
            K:BB
            HR
            K
            W
            Sv
            HLD

            or something to that effect.
