How can we improve Yahoo Daily Fantasy?

Batters should be penalized for outs in MLB DFS games.

Pitchers shouldn't be assessed so many penalties as is in the rules and batters none. I mean they're being penalized for even hits. That's ridiculous. Meanwhile, batters aren't assessed penalties for every out at the plate. A batter with 1-6, HR at-bat stat in a losing effort shouldn't be considered a good fantasy pick against the pitcher he faced who gave up 6 hits (-6pts) and 1 ER (-2) in a winning effort. A pitcher shouldn't face so many batters on the mound and yet be assessed so many penalties, while a batter whose job is just to appear on average 4 at-bats a game get away scott-free even if he ends the night going 0-4 with 4Ks.

    I agree. Its similar to plus/minus in hockey. But since you cant do plus/minus in baseball since it is more of an individual effort, they should be "punished" for getting an out. Even if its a small amount like 0.5 points or 1.0 point. In hockey, a guy that doesnt have a goal, an assist or a shot can end up with -6.0 points if he has -3 plus minus and his team loses 5-0. But in baseball if a guy goes 0-5 with 5ks and his team loses 12-0, he finishes with 0.0 points. If he has a terrible game like that and so does his team, he definitely should get negative something.
