Scoring - New scoring categories and functionality
Requests for new scoring categories and general functionality.
Some of the most highly requested scoring categories are:
- Wins + Quality Starts
- Opponent OPS
- Net Wins
- Total Walks allowed + Total hits allowed
Kirk Horsman commented
I think the same band of fools has voted this to the top. We might as well have the categories "Doubles by virtue of the fielder losing the ball in the sun", "singles by virtue of the fielder losing the ball in the lights", "batters reaching on dropped third strikes", "batters reaching on catcher interference","baserunners' bases gained on defensive indifference". Seriously, why do you need another category to manage your league? Are you trying to avoid someone gaining an advantage in ratio stats by drafting only relievers? Put in a minimum innings pitched requirement. Trying to prevent someone streaming SP to pick up Ks? Add a maximum weekly transaction limit (and season limit for that matter). Ratio stats are huge in baseball, they have been since the game started, they will be there forever. ERA is probably the best stat that exists for pitchers. Wins and losses are meaningless; they are a team stat. If you amassed 30 wins and win all your games 10-8, does that make you a good pitcher? No, your team bailed you out. If you lose 20 games with an ERA of 1.50, are you a bad pitcher? No, your team's offense stinks. I just want to understand why you think there is a need for this imaginary stat category. And Yahoo, please allow me to vote thrice against ideas that I think deserve no consideration at all. This is eerily reminiscent of NHL fan all-star voting John Scott the the 2016 Game or the 2007 Vote for Rory campaign. If I could understand why, maybe I could go along. I just don't see the point.

Seems like a logical add. Wins are unchanged and QS are rewarded. However, I don't know how it would work getting 2 points for a QS and a W. What about you get 1 point for either a QS... OR .... W but not both?
joe hartnett commented
then you probably don't want batting average as well
SCOTT FRENZEL commented
Not all wins are QS and not all QS starts are wins. But the times a pitcher can get both in a start would be at a premium. Please make this an option for leagues to use, if leagues don't want to use it, they don't have to.

If some people don't like this category, don't add it in your league. But help the leagues that DO want to add this!

This might be the dumbest idea I have ever seen suggested. How in the world is it ranked 1?
Seth Eric Cohen commented
What reason is there for not allowing this option yet?
Gerard Lebar Jr. commented
Why not just add walks and hits? And have a 6 x 6 league? Is five not an arbritrary number? No offense but your request almost seems like you want to take the thinking/challenge out of the game? Which I suppose is never a good reason to do for something that is intended to be thought about and challenging -- otherwise, why not simulate the experience? Baseball is a game of ratios (era, batting average, etc.), unlike fantasy football. Anyway, this request was months ago, I'm curious if yahoo relented.
Dan Sciarrillo commented
yahoo, you're ridiculous! haaaaaaaaaaaa
Dan Sciarrillo commented
nuthin, you're clearly not too bright!
Scott Wagner commented
They need it badly. Fantrax has it on their site. my league would rather stick with Yahoo. Please make it happen!
Raider Durrrhh commented
I may be missing something but you want yahoo to invent a stat that will have an outcome exactly the same as WHIP.
there are better suggestions..
still crickets...unreal, yahoo
At least you got your topic to #1. Yahoo probably hopes that's enough of a win that you'll forget about your actual request just like they have.
not sure how it hurts any other fantasy user...if they don't want to use it, then they simply do not use it. hahah...the IQ of some people...i tell ya
hank; you, my friend, are a tool. is this really how you choose to utilize your time? leave the guy alone. it's no harm to anyone. if yahoo doesn't like the suggestion, they'll deny it. looks like there's plenty of support, though. all of them vs 1 goon (YOU). have a great day trolling online suggestion websites LMAO...yikes...sad life

We want to replace K with with K% in our league. We prefer ratios to counting stats in our league. It promotes starting quality players and avoids ticky tacky roster moves that shouldn't matter late in the week
nothing better to do with your redneck, life today, Hank? f off. go bang your sister BetsyLu
Let me get this straight... you want a combined category of overall walks + hits ...even though those categories already exist individually, and even the the MLB does not recognize this combination of stats without any context ie WHIP. OBPA.. etc, but you want the combined category added for all yahoo fantasy users because why? Because your league thinks it might be neat? You sir are a Grade-A MORON!!!!
Jack Fritz commented
Total bases allowed is a good way to evaluate the best pitchers in the league, but it sways way too much towards relievers so it doesn't make it worth it. TB/9 should even that out and truly show which pitchers are the best in the league. Please put this in ASAP!
