Two questions for the commish:

(1) Is this a head-to-head league?

(2) Does the league use the big 5 pitching (ERA, W's, K's, saves, WHIP) and the big 5 hitting (H, R's, RBI, HR, Avg.)?

Maybe I should have asked the second question before engaging in the dispersal draft. :oops: I just presumed those were the categories, since 90% of leagues use those 10.

1. No, it is not h2h

2. Substitute OBP for AVG. Otherwise, those are the categories.

Actually in honor of some of the quirky people on this board, the categories are as follows...

Batting -

BA with 2 strikes against
BA with runners on 1st and 3rd
3 run HR percentage
OPS on nights with Fireworks
SB's on that players bobblehead day

Pitching -

LHP era against lefties
HR's allowed
Number of HR's pitcher would have hit it he were actually made into a position player (known as JVB%)
Pitch count per inning

Wish I knew that OBP was used over average. @#$%*@*#%

I picked Cano and Pence knowing that their batting averages were quite high, but their walk rates low. For most fantasy baseball, unlike real baseball, that does not matter.

I want a re-count on my Ichiro selection.

If that is denied, I hereby offer to trade Ichiro for Andrew Bailey.
