I set it up Rotisserie style, it elimates a lot of scoring headaches and brings it down to the following catagories:

Hits
HR
RBI
SB
Batting Avg

Wins
Saves
K's
ERA
WHIP



This still the scoring?

Yes, still the scoring

Everyone OK with the Player (162) and Innings (1300) caps?

My only question on WHIP is if there is an inning requirement so it doesn't skew that stat towards Closers

My only question on WHIP is if there is an inning requirement so it doesn't skew that stat towards Closers

For the scoring all the hits and walks allowed by the pitchers you started are divided by total innings pitched.

That means even if you have Trevor Hoffman with a .90 WHIP at 70 IP and a starting staff with a 4.00 WHIP at 1,000 IP, the team WHIP will be about 3.92

In other words, a pitcher's WHIP only carries weight relative to their innings pitched.  Closers contribute a little bit, starters contribute a lot.

The same rule applies to ERA.

And, I'm just ducky with the scoring system as is as well.

Tonight is the first night of my 3rd consecutive JD Fantasy Baseball Championship reign.  So don't be late.

Just to be clear here, the scoring is not "hits," it is "runs."  That is Yahoo's default and also the way our league is set. 

If you were to have both "hits" and "average" that would be totally redundant.  The way it is set on our Yahoo league page is correct.

So, in short, the scoring is:

runs NOT hits
Batting average
Hr
Rbi
Sb

Wins
K's
ERA
WHIP
Saves

I will be plastering the draft chat with this info so that there is no confusion.

Sweet, all I had to do to get a top 5 pick was join a league that only had 7 teams...

Last laugh is actually gonna be on you Zod.  Let's look at all of Kev's "1st basemen" for a moment, shall we?

1.  David Ortiz (Will play 1B on his roster) will put up numbers as good as anyone in baseball to the tune of .300 40 HR 130 RBI

2.  Derrek Lee (Will play DH on Kev's roster) Was a triple crown threat all of last year and will post .320 35 HR 110 RBI 20 SB in all likelihood.

3.  Lance Berkman (Will play OF on Kev's roster) 1B/OF versatility, drafted to play outfield is good for .300 30 HR 100 RBI.

4.  Ryan Howard - Will likely be traded to me shortly for something he needs.

5.  Jason Giambi - bench, for now.


I don't see what the joke is really.  He got 2 of the top 10 hitters in baseball last year in Ortiz and Lee, both will be starting, the 3rd one is an outfielder, Howard's going to my team since I only have Thome and no backup, and Giambi one of 5 bench spots.
