Invites just went out. Let me know if you're on that list and did not receive one.

Scoring is head-to-head, each category weighted the same. The categories are R, RBI, OBP, SLG, and SBN (net stolen bases) for hitters and ERA, K, WHIP, SV, and QS for pitchers. These categories are up for discussion, in particular the pitching ones. I considered K/9 in place of straight Ks, but I think K/9 would make relievers overvalued. The most likely change, I think, is substituting K/BB for WHIP, so let me know how you feel about that. There was, alas, no option for FIP or anything like that beyond ERA.

Rosters--I took away the default MI and CI positions and two of the OF positions, and changed one of the three remaining OFs to CF. I prefer the closer resemblance to an actual starting lineup this way. I also changed it from 9 to 6 active pitchers, increasing the bench size to 6; I think this encourages more daily managing and tinkering--I don't want people to set it and forget it. Add it up, and the total roster size is 21 (plus one DL spot). As with the categories, I am open to changing the roster settings if you guys come at me with pitchforks (if you ask nicely I will of course simply ignore you).

The most important thing right now: the draft is currently set for next Friday, the 23rd, at 8 PM Central. I live in Connecticut, so I can't have it much later, but there is some wiggle room. Let me know ASAP if that date and/or time do not work for you. We're doing a snake draft in honor of Daron Sutton.
