Fan Duel announced their new "2011 season large field baseball pants party" (or whatever it's called).
Don't forget to check the rules, especially the scoring:
Hitters: 1B = 1pt, 2B = 2pts, 3B = 3pts, HR = 4pts, RBI = 1pt, R = 1pt, BB = 1pt, SB = 2pts, Out = -.25pt
Not only did they remove hitter strikeouts (-1 last year), which helped even out the value of power hitters to contact hitters...
But now SACRIFICES are worth -.25 instead of zero. When your hitter clocks a sac fly, he will earn .75 instead of 1 point. (1 for RBI -.25 for the out.)
FWIW, the pitching scoring remains unchanged. WHIP still means nothing in this game format.
Don't be fooled by the lure of big prizes into playing a game with a lousy scoring system. There might be a juicy overlay, but it will take a lot to bring me back to that site.
