If so, which format ? Roto or H2H ? Daily or Weekly Lineups? How many stat categories and which?

I will never stop being a Mets fan. I will never stop caring about them. I will never stop hanging on every pitch, waiting for that next incredible moment.

I like H2H over roto, personally. Stat categories should be a little more complex than the typical 5x5. Also, I like daily lineups. Weekly lineups seem more difficult to deal with IMO.

H2H is preferable with Daily lineups. I think we can have a slight improvement over last years categories though.

These are the stats I'm using in my other league

R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, E, OBP, SLG, IP, W, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9, BB/9

I know a lot of people say less is more, but I don't totally agree with that philosophy. I think more stats makes a more competetive league as different teams can have different types of players and still have a shot at winning.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but H2H awards you one point per category if you win, right? So if I hit 239 HR to your 3, I get one point?

And Roto keeps totals throughout the season and awards points accordingly?

Comfort levels...I've only played H2H, therefore I only know H2H. I'll say this much though, I don't like the sound of a cumulative stat point system. (at least that's what it sounds like to me)

Ya know, we can always have one of each if there are enough takers for both.

Also, I suggest creating these leagues soon. I got a crappy draft time and date already in my other league.

Well if the schmack talk is decent in the league nothing beats the H-2-H format. If the 5 seasons of the 2 boards is any history, roto works fine.
:(



I still have no idea what's going on....

I'd suggest coverting the LF, CF, RF to 3 OF, Miz. Also, I would suggest a second UT spot and more general pitcher slots over starting pitcher slots. Do as you wish, though.
