I'm so happy. I know that the good times are near when the new at bat app is released!

http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/ba...rategypitchers

I was looking through the scoring a little bit ago and felt that 10 pts is a lot for Wins. This article really sums up why I feel that way.

Fantasy Baseball more than any other sport is about individual statistics. Why, then, are we putting so much emphasis on a team statistic that has been all but rendered null by baseball fans/media (see Felix Hernandez, Cy Young 2010: Record of 13-12), Front Offices, etc?

Some key points for those that don't want to read it all:
Quote:
A pitcher who wins his game while allowing two runs in seven innings is going to give you in the neighborhood of 30 points, with a potential second start later in the week that could easily double that number. Last season, from April 11 through April 17, Troy Tulowitzki had four home runs, eight RBIs and a .606 OBP. By way of comparison, that stellar week, one that most hitters will never approach, was worth "only" 49 points.
Quote:
The new "five-point win" changes the game a bit, but in terms of comparing pitchers to each other, it doesn't make that big of an impact. You still want pitchers who have the best chance at winning when they take the mound.

Our league agreed before last year's season to increase point potentials for pitchers. I wasn't really involved at that time and don't have an opinion now.
Any changes should be made before keepers are set tho!

I'm not opposed to making scoring changes if it means fair games and if everyone is onboard. I'm no statistician, so I'm not the one to propose these changes.

I've got no previous exp to base an opinion on, so as one of the new guys I'll happily defer to popular opinion...

Sorry, but we're full. If someone decides to drop out, we'll go through this thread and offer the team up to people who've posted.
