Thanks for running the projection. As for not worrying about Ws, I would throw ERA into that same category. For my money, K/BB and HR/9 are the key indicators of the starting pitchers that I want. Any thoughts? Are there similarly indicative stats on the hitting side?
Hey Sean -
K/BB and HR/9 are great ways to judge pitchers. In terms of fantasy stats, I think WHIP is more predictive than ERA - and if a simulation like this netted a poor team WHIP, I'd assume the ERA would be in the tank too.
For hitters, I look at K Rate (K/AB) and BABIP to test AVG (note that most projection systems - Marcel excluded - do this). For HR, I look at doubles and Fly Ball rate. The higher both are, the higher the HR potential. For SB, I just look at past performance and then think "Does this person need to steal?" and "What's the likelihood they get a gimpy leg and stop running?".
Hope this helps -
