Create a new pitching stat category; total walks allowed + total hits allowed (NOT whip)
I have been a Yahoo! user/fantasy participant since the year 2000. I play fantasy baseball, basketball, hockey, NCAA march madness, and football with you. I have never left yahoo! for any other fantasy sports site. I have a simple request of you and am very hopeful you are able to grant it asap, prior to the 2017 fantasy baseball season.
My long-standing head-to-head league is moving away from ERA/WHIP. We want to steer clear of ratio/percentage stat categories.
Therefore, I am asking that you add a new stat category for pitching which combines walks allowed and hits allowed.
On this Yahoo link (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN6800.html), we see that you currently provide both HITS and WALKS as two individual stat categories for users to choose from. All of my league members and I are asking that you create one that combines the two; it can be called WALKS + HITS (regarding the TOTAL number of walks and hits a pitcher allows in his outing). We are aware of the WHIP category and that's not what we prefer to use. Again, we are trying to steer clear of a ratio/percentage and are hopeful to move forward to whole numbers...in this case a combination of two stats as one category.
Please consider implementing this for this upcoming fantasy baseball season. If this is indeed granted, it would return our league to a 5x5 category league which is what we are hopeful for. We are trying to avoid the ratios/percentages while also avoiding a total of 11 categories which is what we are currently at. If you are able to add this option for us, we can get it back to 5x5 while using the other 9 categories (along with the proposed total WALKS allowed + total HITS allowed) which we are proposing.
I am going to ask my league-mates to post in support of this and also ask the rest of the community/forum to help us by voting 3 votes and posting positive feedback for our proposal. We are really looking forward to having this as an option for this season.
Thanks, Yahoo!, for your time and consideration. This is really important to us. Much appreciated.

I am all for this proposal; could be helpful for something I am trying to change in my dynasty league, too. Thanks for making this post. YAHOOOOO; DO IT!
Please add this as it is something that could be very useful to our league (same as the original thread starter) and many others.
Thanks a ton!
Thanks for the support, everyone; league-mates and otherwise. REALLY hoping Yahoo helps me/us out with this. It would greatly benefit our league this coming season.

Why not? It's just another simple category to add to your extensive list; and a very good one at that. I love the suggestion. Help the brother out, Yahooooooooooo. Thanks!
Please grant this request. Our league is highly dependent upon it. Thank you for your time, yahoo!
I have previously asked for something similar; hoping that it's added this time around.
