During the offseason there was discussion about what we like in a league, and this league provides a bunch of options.
Draft day My preference is a weekday evening in the week of March 22. What works for the rest of you?
League rules This is a head to head league.
I like 9 positions, starters and relievers: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, RF and Util. If you prefer OF, middle infield, corner infield or anything else, I'll bow to the majority. From this I'd have the 9 position players, 2 starters and 2 relievers available each day, plus a bench 4 of to mix and match.
Do we want to try a keeper league? I've never done one before, but CBSSports.com offers a "minors" option where we could stash prospects and store future draft picks.
Scoring There are a ton of scoring options. See here. We even have the option to create custom stats by building off the basics (for example, we could have a wOBP as 2*OBP+SLG/2). We could even weight certain categories if we wanted.
It'll be even pitching and hitting, but we could have 2 categories on each side or 20. We could even include fielding stats. I'd go for OBP, SLG, SB-CS, Runs Produced, Hits :: WHIP, K/9, K:BB, ERA, Quality Starts; but again, I'll go with the league.
