    2017 HOF Dream League: Games 1-4 (FOLDED)

    Welcome to the 2017 HOF Dream League!

    Everything you need to know can be found in this thread, but I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

    This is an easy game to play, but everyone is responsible for scoring their own team each week and posting their results to this thread. No one will do it for you. If you fail to score your team's games by the weekly deadline, you will receive 0 points for those games.

    The schedule will be posted by tomorrow. The first 4 games of your season must be scored/posted no later than January 15th.


    FORMAT

    This is a 26 team head-to-head league comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers.

    Each team is labelled from A-Z, is 100% randomly generated, and includes:

    12 hitters (8 starting, 4 bench)
    5 starting pitchers
    1 Manager
    1 Closer

    Each contestant selected one of these letters along with a number when they signed up. See the "Scoring" section below for details on what this number means.

    This league is split into two 13 team divisions (Teams A-M and Teams N-Z).

    Teams will play everyone in their division once (12 game "season").

    Due to the odd number of teams in each division, one team will always be on a bye.

    At the end of the season, the top 4 teams in each division will advance to the playoffs.

    If two or more teams finish with the same Win/Loss record, the team having the most regular season "runs" will place higher in the standings. If still tied, the team with the fewest "runs" allowed will place higher in the standings.

    Win your divsion to advance to the Championship for all the glory...and a cool prize to boot.

    Consolation prizes are also available to 2nd and 3rd place.


    ***TEAMS***

    ***TEAMS (COPY/PASTE)***


    PLAYOFFS

    1st Round
    Best of 3
    1 and 2 has home field advantage (1.5 "run" bonus for each game, if necessary)
    1 vs. 4
    2 vs. 3

    Division Championship
    Best of 5
    highest seed has home field advantage

    League Championship
    Best of 7
    highest seed has home field advantage


    SCORING

    Using Baseball Reference, points are scored by looking up a real-life stat in a given season for each individual on your team.

    Compare each of those totals to those from the same type of individual on your opponent's team to determine a winner.

    Example: Catcher vs. Catcher, Starting Pitcher #1 vs. Starting Pitcher #1 , Bench Player 3 vs. Bench Player 3).

    That's it! Just a straight up comparison. No math, no multipliers, nothing else.

    The individual with the higher total will win their battle and will score between 1 and 3 runs.

    Hitters: 1 run each
    Manager/Closer: 2 runs each
    Starting pitcher: 3 runs each

    The team with the most combined "runs" wins that game.

    If an individual matchup results in a tie, the individual with the highest career total will score the "runs".


    NOTES

    The "home team" for each matchup will receive a 1.5 "run" bonus, if they didn't win outright. This means the visitor must win by 2 or more "runs" to claim a road victory.

    Bonus "runs" are not counted in the season totals when used as a tiebreaker. See the bottom of the "Format" section above.

    You will begin the season with your 1st Starting Pitcher (SP1), and then go to SP2 for the 2nd game, SP3 for the 3rd game, etc... After you have played your 5th game, you go to the top of your rotation for your 6th game (SP1). And so on...

    All other individuals on your team play every game with the exception of the four starting pitchers who are resting.

    See the scoring chart below to let you know which statistic you are looking at for each individual.

    The number you selected when you signed up for this league is the season you will refer to for your first game of the season. This number will increase by 1 for each game thereafter.

    If the number you are currently on exceeds the number of seasons a player/manager had in their career, you simply continue counting back at their first season.

    Example: Player A had an 11 year career, but you are currently on year 28. In this case, you would go through Player A's career twice (22 years), and then down to his 6th year to get to 28.

    Baseball-Reference must be used when looking up your team's stats.

    Be careful to only count seasons, and not individual lines on the player's page. When a player has been traded mid-season, BR has a handy "hide partial" link right above his stats to show only the calendar years he played.


    SCORING CHART

    Here are the categories we will use for all games.

    Just remember to move down one season and one starting pitcher after each game.

    Hitters: Hits
    Starting Pitchers: Strikeouts
    Manager: Wins
    Closer: Saves


    SAMPLE MATCHUP

    Okay, you've read through the entire post so far and may be a little confused. Not to worry! Here's a complete walkthrough of a sample matchup.

    Here we have Team 1 vs. Team 2
    Team 2 is home, so they will receive a 1.5 "run" bonus, if necessary
    Team 1 is currently on season 14
    Team 2 is currently on season 22

    Using the scoring chart from above:

    Hitters: Hits
    Starting Pitchers: Strikeouts
    Manager: Wins
    Closer: Saves

    Here are the steps we'd take to determine a winner:

    Sorry, folks. Webs.com was giving me fits this morning. I just checked all the links now, though, and everything seems to work fine.

    Any questions, just ask!

    Good luck to all.

    Correction! The home field advantage should only be 1.5 runs, not 2.5.

    Everything else is good to go.

    Mighty impressive, but no guarantee they will win their matchups!

    All depends on the stage of their career and the stat that comes into play. Enos Slaughter could take down Ruth if the stars align!

    This is going to be a lot of fun. Honestly I'm a little worried I'm going to mess up on the calculations. I may have to ask some questions but I'll figure it out.

    You will see how easy this is to play! Absolutely no calculations.

    Pro tip: Once you have a players page open, just mark their total for all games this week.

    Just remember to use the right stat and season for each game. That's it!

    Any questions at all, just ask.

    My head hurts.....lol

    So we are using these for the first weeks games?
    Hitters: Batting Average
    Starting Pitchers: Strikeouts
    Closer: Innings
    Manager: Wins

    Also, just need the points total for our team posted?

    No, the categories for game 1 are:

    Hitters: Hits
    Starting Pitcher: Innngs
    Closer: ERA
    Manager: Wins

    Check the Scoring Chart.

    Otherwise, you just have to post those totals for each pkayer for your starting season (31).

    Once your opponent posts their totals, I'll tally your "runs" (points).

    Hope that makes sense!
