    I'm in, but what scoring categories are you considering?

    I would suggest:

    HR RBI R SB AVG OPS for offense

    and

    W S ERA WHIP K H(olds)

    This way your relief pitchers have more value, because there are only a few real closers.

    Let me know when you have it set up, and I'll join in a heartbeat. I'm usually in 5-7 Yahoo leagues and 1 ESPN league, so one more is no problem!

    Well it was going to be H2H, so I was thinking of doing this:

    Single - 1 point

    Double - 2

    Triple - 3

    HR - 4

    Runs - 1

    RBI - 1

    SB - 1

    K -( -1)

    My only problem with this is that it makes power hitters overrated, so if you have an idea to fix it, let me know.

    And for pitching:

    IP - 3

    ER - (-1)

    Win - 10

    Loss - (-5)

    Save - 5

    Blown Save - (-2)

    K - 1

    Hit - (-.5)

    BB - (-.5)

    Hold - 2

    No Hitter - 10

    Perfect Game - 20

    OK, if you are going to go that way, then you need to add a couple of hitting categories, as you currently have 8 offensive and 10 pitching stats (actually 12, but I'll consider the no hitter and perfect game points as "bonus" ones.)

    I would guess Walks would be a good one, +1. And maybe make SB +2, and CS -1?

    Sure I'll give it a whirl.
    Mets - heart attacks
    Jets - primed for Superbowl run but will probably disappoint as usual
    Knicks - lol, and probably wont get Lebron either

    **** sports.

    And looking it over, it actually DEVALUES power hitters some, because a guy who goes 4-4 with 2 singles and two doubles is more likely than multiple homers from one guy, so Player A would have 10 points purely from hits, while Player B would have 12 from two solo HR, but since runs were put on the board from those hits immediately, they ARE more valuable.

    A guy like, say Adam Dunn is more likely to go 1-4 with a HR and 2 K, which would be 4 points, while a guy like Ichiro Suzuki is more likely to go 2-4 with a double and a SB, therefore he would have 4 points too. Basically a wash.

    If you all want to do a live draft using the phone, I could set up a conference bridge to host it.

    It would probably be easier to just do the online one I think
