 08-06-2007 #1 julian e Guest   Posts: n/a how come in fantasy baseball its not popular to count defense statistics? like errors, outfield assists, double plays, pickoffs...also i think that the pitchers statistics should count. because the american league has to deal with the DH so i think its fair in the end.well, i don't think RBIs are fair because if your teammates never get on base; or wins, i have matt cain and his record is like 3-11 with an era of like 3.50. if he picked up 10 wins nobody would have said anything.

 08-06-2007 #4 search4knowledge Guest   Posts: n/a Part of the problem is that all players do not have an equal chance in every game to get a stat. All players usually get 3-4 appearance at the plate and have a equal chance in getting a hit, drive in a run,etc.etc..The only stat you may want to consider is fielding % . But as the previous person stated , you can create any catergory you want in creating your league.
