Please add a Net Wins category (Wins + Losses)
Add Wins + Losses as a pitching category, resulting in Net Wins
Jeff Cain commented
Please add this. We currently use win percentage and it's impossible to tell how far away you are from the team ahead of you. With Net Wins (Wins Minus losses) you can at least get a sense of how many wins or opponent losses you would need to move up a category.

100% agree. This needs to get highlighted and executed this year. Yahoo offers net SBs, net saves (who does this category), & Net Saves + Holds. We need Wins Minus Losses to be a category.
yes, wins minus losses (sorry in my head im counting losses as negative)
Wouldn't that be Wins MINUS Losses?
John Snedeker commented
Couldn't agree more. Also, winning percentage isn't a good substitute. In a head-to-head categories league with Winning % Team A's 1-0 pitching staff would beat Team B's 6-1 pitching staff. In Wins minus Losses Team B would win the category 5 wins to 1, which is preferable in my opinion.
This would be a useful pitching value stat that would include losses, and would be attractive to commissioners who want to include Losses without having to add a negative stat category (which many don't like because it can reward inactive teams). It would also be a great stat to pair with QS and the combo of NWL and QS would reward top pitchers while keeping quality relievers relevant.
