The notion I've been playing with recently is, is there starting pitcher scarcity in 5x5? The number of pitchers who will reliably pile up the strikeouts, while getting all the other good stuff, is so limited that they might as well be Rickey Henderson.

Don't pay them what we paid for Rickey -- because they're pitchers, after all -- but pay them as if they're worth the same as in 4x4, no matter what the math says.

I think stats are fungible - unless they are not. Yes, you need to fill certain positions, but you are not trying to win based upon positions. It's the cumulative team stats that matter. While there may be positional scarcity in an individual league due to keepers (only 2 starting shortstops are not frozen) there is no such thing as scarcity based upon time of draft. Yes, the same two starting shorstops may be the last two available in your draft, however if there were more available earlier, it's not a question of scarcity at that point, it's draft management - and poor draft management if you haven't spent all of our inflation dollars and still need a starting shortstop.

Regarding fungibility- there are very few players with unique skills that I've run across in my years of playing this game. Rickey Henderson (through 1989), Wade Boggs (through 1989 also), Ichiro (through 2009). Can't think of another in the AL. Power hitters, even those with .300 averages, can be replaced completely with other players aggregating the totals. Guys who steal 80+ bases cannot. Guys who bat .350 cannot. There may be another, but nobody I can think of in that time period. There are also individual years with some ace pitchers who dominated ERA/Ratio (like Pedro in 1999/2000), but not over sustained periods.

We talk about position scarcity a lot on this discussion board, but there were more second basemen with an .800+ OPS than center fielders last year.

Today's infield is not your father's IF...
