CREAM III - Fantasy Baseball returns to week4paug.net
« on: February 09, 2011, 09:06:03 AM »

Who's interested in 2011 Fantasy Baseball?

$22 gets you in the door, winner take all (minus Paypal fees)

My proposed scoring for 2011:

Batters:
Total Bases - Batting Average - Runs - Home Runs - SB - Walks - Errors
Pitchers:
IP - ERA - K - WHIP - Quality Starts - Holds - Net Saves

Thoughts?  Questions?  Suggestions?

The thinking is that wins are a very arbitrary stat, and it bugs some people that you can pick up a shitty pitcher on a good team (pitching against a bad team) for a day and get a win.

A Quality start is 6 IP, 3 or fewer runs allowed, which is as good as a win in my book.

Yes, but we can't force people to pay.

If we have fewer than 10 we can expand the rosters.

I'm in this year... should be fun...


But I can't draft on March 15 @ 9:00pm EST... I'm in school... Mon. - Thurs./4:30 - 8:30 MST.
So I'm hoping we can do the draft on a Fri., Sat., or Sun. @ 9:00 pm EST or earlier in day on any day during the week..??

"Your answer is silly. What'd do you want the song to do? End world hunger?
It's a fucking Phish song, some of them are very complex compositions, some are not.

This one with its complex vocal arrangement falls right in between.
But that and a hook aren't enough so I'll let Trey know his songs have to start giving out handys." RJ
