Graviton Otters are in!

I'm surprised OBP hasn't become a fantasy scoring mainstay. It's like WHIP for batters!  awesome, for real

Except OBP has actual predictive and evaluative use, while WHIP is just wankery. OBPS is even better. Can we add one or both? And maybe shitcan WHIP for something like FIP or xFIP?

That FG league's saber-y 4x4 set-up is: OBP, SLG, HR, R and ERA, WHIP, HR/9, K which I think is quite good.  Swapping out WHIP for FIP is alright as well, or even for xFIP since actual HR rates would be accounted for via HR/9.

I have no idea if any of that is possible though via Yahoo.

FYI, FIP is not available as an option in Yahoo leagues (unlike such awesome categories as "Ground into Double Play" or "Outfield Assists").

Also, OPS >>> AVG, and Quality Starts make a fine replacement for Wins.  Not that I'm in this league or anything.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Went back and added OPS and Fielding Percentage as batting categories, took out WHIP and added Quality Starts and Holds.

Hrmm, they have WHIP and K/9 but no rate version of HR so we don't have the component parts for FIP either.  Can't do xFIP either because there's no fly balls stat.

8 days til the draft and we are still at 8/12 players. Surely there are baseball fans here who have not signed up yet!

I'll sign the fuck up, if only to toss another name in the ring. You can expect me to be around the bottom, unless Bautista pulls off his magic again  DRILLING AND MANLINESS.

I have a reminder to rank some players Friday afternoon. I may get stuck with toddler patrol on Saturday, so my live participation in the draft is suddenly iffy.

I believe an even number of teams is required for the draft, so that will need to resolve itself or the draft will just cancel itself.  I'll officially be on autodraft, which sucks, but I try to make up for it by making many totally ridiculous trade offers.

Thinking it might be a good idea to swap some of those pitching states to rate stats instead of counting stats, with 5/6 pitcher stats being counting stats, cheesy pitcher churning looks really valuable.

An even number of teams is only required for a head to head league. This is a roto league because some people hate H2H.

I resemble that remark!

I don't hate it as much in baseball as football, but I still think roto/points race styles indicate the more skillfully assembled and managed team over the course of a season.

I think roto generally indicates who gives a shit and culls the weak in June.

That being said, if I'm not in the top half by mid-season and the Braves go into the tank, I will be accepting crazy trade offers before I go off the deep end and fill my team with Mets.

Arg, I think I might not be able to be around for the draft, so its up to the auto picker to save me!

Unless I can perhaps use a friends iPhone to draft somehow while we are up in Sonoma.

Unless there's some kind of Yahoo Fantasy application I'm not aware of, you're SOL as the draft site requires Flash.

I completely missed it. Was feeling like crap and took a nap without my phone nearby; then watched the Pac10 championship game before I even looked at the reminder on my phone. Hopefully I am not to screwed.

Edit- not too unhappy- got 3 of my top 9 ranked players in the first three rounds.

I made it in time for the second half of the draft. I auto'd three SS's and then took Infante in the late rounds. It's looks like everyone has a solid guy there, but I'm open to offers.

I have no idea what to think about the Frolics.  I'm weak at middle infield, which is probably how I'd have drafted it anyway, and I guess I'm going for power over speed.  I am a little worried about injuries.

Halliday, Kershaw, and Hamels makes me awesome, for real and I hooray for the Beard!
