I don't see how they could use average based stats as they are rotisserie categories. Let's take an example of how the scoring would break down in a couple of categories. We will base this on a 12 team league.

From what you are saying, the most fantasy points you could earn from one of these average based categories would be 12 points for the season, right? You would get these 12 points by leading the fantasy league in that particular category.

Now, let's say we get one fantasy point per single hit by one of our players. A single player couple accumulate over 100 fantasy points just from hitting singles. The average based stats would be overwhelmed by the number of fantasy points being scored in the other categories and would be virtually useless.

KMD, can you please clarify what kind of scoring you are planning on using in this league?

I'd be interested for sure... it's hard to find people to do Fantasy Baseball here in Montreal.

Can you please explain the scoring? Is this roto or points?

If points how many points is each of the below worth - especially AVG, ERA, k/9 and WHIP, I've never seen those categories used in a points system, so I am a bit confused. You can't accumulate AVE, ERA, K/9 and WHIP, those are all averages and roto categories.

My bad...Roto

If there are 10 teams, the best average gets 10 points, then 9... etc

Make sense?

Here's how to join:

In order to join the league, follow the link above or go to game front page, click the "Sign Up Now" or "Get Another Team" button and follow the links to "Join a Custom League". When prompted, enter the League ID# and password below.

League ID#: 356497
Password: FireOmar


We can still make adjustments to the league, I just want the people who are actually involved in this to make the decisions.

I'd be interested pending draft date. Got a baby on the way within the next 4-6 weeks.

Gonna sign up for the league, may have to drop out before the draft if I'm in the hospital. But the league sounds fun.

Would prefer cash payout as well.
