stats i think we should look at:
some two out of SLG, OB% OPS
my wildcard throwaway: K/AB as a negative stat for batters
wildcard stats: Earned Runs as a neg counting stat. K/9 IP. Having IP as the counting stat that replaces Wins -- because, if you think about it, they're related. Earned Runs could be an option. I'd like to make relief pitchers, all of them, slightly more valuable, and i think ER might help with that. with this system, you can devise a way that you might be able to field a decent pitching lineup with only one or two "ace" starters.
i have a spreadsheet that i made with all of the scoring from my other league already typed in, at least for the 200some hitters and 100some pitchers from that league. there's no way to import that sheet into our league's scoring system, but if anyone wants to mess around with it, i will e-mail it to them. short version of what it showed is that in a league where your IP are important, Brandon Webb is the 18th best starter in baseball. and that chipper jones, when he played last year, was a tank. and for reference, this league was on yahoo, so you can do stats like this in a free league.
