    That link doesn't work.

    I always send an invite to my own email address from Yahoo, and copy the link included in the email for use on the forum.

    changed link

    and similar to last year but added a few stats to make infield selections more interesting Double pLays turned, S, D, T

    and get credit for complete games

    I also reduced the bench added IR slots and
    changed CF, RF, LF to simply 3 OF spots

    Few things.
    1. 18 innings minimum is to much
    2. Way too many scoring categories. S,D,T, DP turned, GS, CG, shutouts and no hitters are garbage stats, random as fuck and cannot draft/select for it. Also there is no WHIP for pitching. That's a must.
    3. This league is being run by a the same person who loses interest in all leagues that we do. I can only imagine a the trend continues.

    Not Joining this year.

    I'm ok with adding some more stats for scoring, but we need some more pitching stats to balance it.

    Well to help you out then.
    When you have random garbage categories, you need to counter that with a max move per season.
    If you don't put a max moves all a person has to do is add/drop everyday. Those categories are accumulative.

    I want credit in the event that one of my pitchers throws a no-no..! Whats garbage about that?!


    Wait, whoa, did you turn the OF slots into RF, CF and LF? I like the 3xOF.. less work that way...

    9 times out of 10 that category is going to be tied every week with 0. It's the same goes with complete game and shutout innings for pitchers. It's not a stat you can draft/plan for, it's random and more then likely will end in a tie.

    :mswerd:

    Even in a rotisserie league it would be pointless... it's quite likely that there won't be any no-hitters thrown for the entire season. If your pitcher does throw a no-hitter, you'd still get credit because your WHIP will be lower.

    I just noticed that inherited runners allowed was added to the scoring categories... If we're going to use that, we need another category as an incentive to use middle relievers. I usually don't pick any middle relievers, so I could easily win that category every week.

    No, last year we only had wins, losses, saves, strikeouts, ERA, and WHIP... you must be thinking of another league you were in.

    Yeah, it was another league that had like 6 RC members that were invited by TyTryon when he was with Golf Central.
    I won that league, btw... :cool:

    None the less, Holds will fix your issue.

    Yea holds would solve the problem, and it would also put us at 26 scoring categories. I think that's too many.

    Sorry Ingy, but you're turning the league into a joke. :rofl:

    Half your categories are random as fuck to win.

    You're right, but there's a reason I'm not. Otherwise I'd join.
