Wasn't sure where to put this.

Our league is currently a 9X9 league which seems way over kill to me. Categories are:

Hitting:
R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP

Pitching
W, L, CG, SHO, SV, ER, K, ERA, WHIP

I don't have a huge amount of experience in Fantasy Roto leagues but I want to make a suggestion to our league to trim this down.

I guess my question is:

Is 9X9 overkill or is it more common than I think?
To me CG, SHO and Losses are weird stats to have. CG and SHO are pure luck stats. Hard to target those.
What would be good stats to trim this to without taking too many pieces away?

I was thinking of suggesting making it a 7X7 league

Hitting
R, XBH, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP

Pitching
W, SV, QS, K, K/9, ERA, WHIP

Some potential issues with this are others in the league already think that this league favors closers and setup guys too much. The last 5 winning teams basically had zero starters all year.

Thoughts?
