Don't let's get discouraged mang(s). We still have chosen a batting system, we just need to tweak pitching. The split, such as it was, was over IP versus W as the sixth stat added to K, WHIP, ERA, SV, TB, with an inning cap if W is the sixth stat. I'm willing to change my vote to break the deadlock, if people assent to that. I understand that this looks like/is power-brokering/leveraging my vote/giving the finger ot parliamentary procedure, so I leave it up to you guys to tell me what you think. But I'm eager to have a resolution, and IMO defaulting back to a stat like Wins is a better alternative than the unstable 5x5 pitching stats we almost got (K WHIP ERA SV TB), wherein starters aren't terribly valuable). If that's not an option, or a runoff isn't happening, then we'll need to start from what we do know, which is that K WHIP ERA SV TB have been mandated as acceptable if not quite New Harmonic.
For the record, the hitting stats are R, SB, BB, H, TB, RBI, as chosen by 7 of the 10 gms.
Also, if anyone in chicago wants to be in another league, the dude from hyde park records is looking for heads for his league (which i am also in). i think every conceivable stat is counted. if anyone wants in to a $65 buy-in league with some serious baseball-prospectus-reading small-business owners, let me know and i will send you more info.
