What season end numbers will win each category?

Postby Justin_Case » Fri Apr 23, 2004 1:01 pm

I'm interested to hear what kind of numbers you think it will take to win the categories in a 12 team league.

Let's start with:

HR, RBIs, Runs, Avg. Steals

Wins, Saves, Ks, ERA, WHIP

They don't have to be ridiculous numbers that will put you hands down the winner but something that should have you right there at the top.

You'll need to supply a little more info. I am assuming it is a mixed league, but most importantly, how many starters and at what positions?

I dunno... in the leagues that I've played in in which players were NOT dumped by anyone, I've found that about 65-70% of the available points were close to what you needed to win. If there is any dumping going on the percentage necessary goes up as teams are improved non-linearly.

People may have misunderstood my original post.

I was looking for guesses as to how many HRs, RBIs...etc would win categories.

For example:
HR- 235 Wins 75
RBI 850 Ks 930
SB 90
AVG .310

These numbers are off the top of my head, I wanted to hear from people that have played a couple seasons and see what kind of numbers usually win a category.

read the original post. 12.

as for the answer to the question, I don't know. The better question would probably be "what does it take to finish in the top 3 in each category?" That really ought to be enough to win the title or come darn close to it.
