    DraftDay BLB Finalist

    It was a very small slate and its only been one day, but did anyone notice the huge amount of ties? I was in a 100 man league and ended up tied for 8th with 7 people. All of us had different rosters. Guess we will see how it goes after a few days but with the new scoring i think this might be the norm.

    Although I love the lineup cost being the tiebreaker concept, I doubt we’d ever see that. But yeah, subtracting .05 for hitting into a double play would easily get the job done as well.

    It really doesn’t matter what they do…as long as they do something.

    Make a steal worth 5.5, make a sac fly worth 1.5, give a .5 bonus to any pitcher that goes 8 innings, make a win worth 12.5 (or 11.5), give .75 to infielders that turn a double play. Give .25 for runners stranded in scoring position.

    The putout idea mentioned in this thread is cool, but it’d have to be reflected in player prices (Edwin, V-Mart etc are listed at 1b but often/always play DH).

    There are so many ways the could break up ties without messing up their overall scoring system. They just gotta pick one.

    BTW, I’m working on a story about this topic for RG. If anybody wants to chime on how ties have affected their enjoyment of FD’s MLB product, find me on twitter (thebholloway) or email brentrotogrinders.com.

    Instead they picked something that does, in fact, mess up their overall scoring system.

    We did it dudes!!! I’m not exactly thrilled with the stats they choose, but I’ll take it. It will be much better than what it is now and it devalues the pitcher slightly.
