One key change your league should make
I participate in a league that rewards quality starts as opposed to victories, and I have to say it's far more interesting -- and rewarding -- to me. You see it on Twitter or message boards all the time when some closer like Heath Bell routinely blows a three-run lead in the ninth inning and the deserving starting pitcher is left with a no-decision, which many fantasy owners view as a fail in terms of his fantasy performance. That's not really the case; good innings are worth quite a bit, and the strikeouts don't go away. Wins just aren't predictive, and in many cases, they're not fairly distributed, either.
