I went back in the league history and entered all the stats from prior seasons into a spreadsheet. I thought it might be interesting to play with some of the numbers and see what I could come up with. I will post some stuff over the next few days. Feel free to add anything you can find.
Here are the single-season league records for each category:
Category Record Team Season
Runs 1026 Atomic Dumpling 2011
Home Runs 282 Atomic Dumpling 2010
RBIs 1058 Atomic Dumpling 2012
Stolen Bases 232 HumnHilghtFreel 2010
Batting Average 0.285 Captain Hook 2012
Wins 96 Vada Pinson Fan 2010
Saves 177 Atomic Dumpling 2010
Strikeouts 1313 Crosley68 2012
ERA 3.08 Iowa Red 2011
WHIP 1.12 Bumstead 2011
Total Points 99.5 Iowa Red 2011
How many of these records will fall this year? Which ones are going to be hard to beat?
I think that stolen base record is very high. It is much higher than the record in the other league (the Redszone Dynasty League, which uses the same rules as this league. The second best stolen base total in this league's history is 174. The fewest bases stolen by a team was 75.
For those of you reading this thread who are not in this league, our league is a 5x5 roto dynasty league. Feel free to comment!
