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.

Good idea. I think it should be a very viable option for all private leagues to opt for if they so choose.
yes...this makes sense---great option to have soon, esp. for 17!
