They really needed to have a minimum innings requirement. Having no minimum made gaming the system too likely.

Seadogs, the issue is gaming that makes the end result unrecognizable. No team gets no Saves, and remember that three top finishing teams didn't have nearly enough innings. That's a game well played, but that's a reason to change the game.

Well said, LynchMob. And anyway, if there is to be a Round 2 they should change SOMETHING.

To do this, you need to change the way you get points ... award them "from the bottom up" rather than "from the top down" ... in other words, you get points for beating teams ... so ... any/all teams with 0 saves get zero points ... because they didn't beat any one.  Our current system/process of awarding points says "for each category everyone starts with N points, and then minus a point for each team that beats them" ... with both systems, ties split points ... just that there are not any points for teams with zero saves to split ... and hence more points for teams with saves!

But Seadogs, 17.5 points for zero Saves? That's an artificial reward. Something for nothing. To give them one point (or even zero as Peter suggests) does not make dumping impossible, it would still be viable, just more difficult.

Why? MLB teams dump in real life.

They chose not to steal or to spend money on pitching or to use non-traditional relievers instead of a closer who gets lots of saves.  They can win other ways (outscoring opponents, running out relievers in the top of the fifth (punting wins for their starters).

I get a minimum IP requirement since all teams must play a certain number of innings, but why add an artificial penalty that is going to make teams all try to be alike?

Gene is right. Dumping should cost. I think in exercises of this sort (including our XFL retro draft) coming in last in a category should be worth 0 points. Or the games should be scored based on the deviance from the median, so that tanking categories costs.

I refuse to ride to glory on the coattails of the Freedman's Bureau! But thanks.

The XFL is hatching plans for a retro auction. Many details to be ironed out, including the year we pick.

I'm pushing for 1998 to see what the bid is for Sammy Sosa.

Once I got there, I really got there.  I now have 3 other teams that best the champ by as many as 20 points.  However, I think I like the team that would have scored my second best in the last pool (4 points different).  The key is that I have a significantly better WHIP. In the one with the most points I have one fewer strikeout than the champ.  If everyone copies this pitching staff I lose a lot of points there.  If I go with this option, I give away more Ks, but jump him and almost everyone else in WHIP.  Always draft for WHIP.

I'd be happy to give away my better team (it only varies one player from what I'm going to submit as of now).  If anyone wants to submit it from the patton crew, let me know and I'll email it to you.  Otherwise, I may have someone from my league submit it.  I want to see how both teams do.

I cracked it.  With the same entries, I've made a team that would beat the champ by 5 points.  The problem is, the more teams that copy the champ's strategy, it might falter.  I only beat the champ in 5 categories.  I wanted 6.

I win Runs by 5, RBI by 11, saves by 39, ERA by nearly .02 and Ratio by .005.  I'm behind by 2 HR, 6 SB, .002 in Avg, 23 Wins, and 28 Ks.

I really would love to figure out how to win Ks also b/c if I could win Ks and have some saves, win in ERA and Ratio, it would be great.  Alas, I think I've pushed Ks to the max, while at the same time maximizing wins for an 8 starter team, and minimized ERA/Ratio to their practical extreme.  I could change my Kershaw season costing considerable Ks, gaining 5 or so wins, and bettering my ERA/Ratio.  But, I'm not sure adding ERA/Ratio is valuable at this point.  It's diminishing marginal returns and I think my Ks beat almost all other 8 starter teams.

I'm not sure this is my best opportunity to win a reboot, though.  I could be giving up a lot of points in HR and SB at the expense of winning Runs and RBI.  That said, I think it may be what I submit.
