With the Fake Teams Head-to-Head league drafting in less than two weeks, I think this brief article about the format would be interesting. It ran in USAToday a couple weeks ago, and here is the link H2H. I suggest anyone who is particpating in a head-to-head league for the first time click through and read it.
As a bonus, there is a list of pitchers who could be expected to do worse/better based on an expected ERA calculation.
Does anyone know why 31 is used? Is it just because a measure of OBP multiplied by a measure of SLG gives a result that is close to the league average ERA when multiplied by 31? Could it be that spurious or is there something more meaningful?
