Not Your Usual Fantasy League

Ok so I've set up a Yahoo (free) Fantasy League.
I wanted to do something a little bit different for this one though.
Here are some of my ideas on what this league will involve:

1) focus more on a player's individual abilities
2) give importance the little things that players do to help their team
3) get the league's managers to look a little deeper into what makes a player valuable other than the traditional counting stats

Obviously this kind of setup will mean a little bit more research, insight and creativity involved for the managers.

Initially these are the stats I'm thinking of using, (but we can always alter that once we're setup):
Position players - HR, SB, BB, K, OBP, SLG
Pitchers - HR, SB, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9

League ID: 7665
Password: chemistry

Draft day is scheduled for Sunday, March 20, 1:15pm Chicago time.
I set it up initially for 8 teams to make it very competitive, but we can add more if many are interested. Thanks!

Yeah a few years back I tried that, it was fun trying to pick which players were more good than bad.

I try to limit myself to no more than 7 in hitting and pitching now, and I like the core stats, old school style, lol.
