What It Takes To Win: Offense

In this post we will sum up our offensive benchmarks.  The goal: assemble a balanced team that achieves fourth place in every category.  That seemingly modest goal will usually result in a championship with 90 points.  The league type: 5x5 12-team mixed with 14 hitters, 9 pitchers, 3 bench players, and 2 DL spots (1500 IP max).  I realize our sample size for these benchmarks is small, just a few leagues I've been in.  But I want to be careful to limit it to leagues of this exact type that I know were competitive.

On to the benchmarks:

  • .283 AVG
  • 285 HR
  • 1111 RBI
  • 1154 R
  • 175 SBs

Later today we'll start doing the pitching categories.
