This weekend I participated in the Tout Wars Mixed League auction for the third time - it’s a 15-team league with 14 Hitters, 9 Pitchers, 4 reserves, and a $260 budget. The league has previously used the traditional five hitting and five pitching categories, but this year, in an effort to stay with the times, and perhaps spice things up a bit, the Mixed League will be using On-base Percentage (OBP) in lieu of Batting Average. If you’re curious, here’s the spreadsheet containing the results of the auction (note: Mixed League Auction league results are shown on the second of the four tabs) .

A couple Fantasy Focus articles over the last few weeks have referenced Yahoo leagues and this article , which provides the category averages for teams that finished in the top three of 12-team, standard 5x5 leagues in 2008.
