Allow me to chime in:

This is an excellent time to try the modified game I invented and we played for years.

Instead of playing the rotisserie way, play for wins and losses. The way you get wins and losses is on a weekly basis, using the standard rotisserie format.

At the end of the week, you calculate the standings as normal by category, and whichever team is in first place gets 11 wins and 0 losses (assuming a 12 team league). Second place for the week gets 10 wins and 1 loss, etc, down to the 12th place team which gets 0 wins and 11 losses. 

Then, the next week, you start all over. Nothing carries over except the wins and losses. 

Several reasons why this is fun - first of all, it makes the weekend games more exciting. If you have a pitcher going on Sunday night, his performance alone could get you a win or two for the week (or a loss or two). Every stolen base is precious doing it this way. 

Secondly, there's no need to dump categories. In a regular league, if you're in last by 20 stolen bases, you're not even in the market for a SB guy. Doing it this way, one decent SB guy could get you a few points in the SB category each week. 

Give this a shot, it's a perfect year to try it out. 

(by the way, for those wondering why I'm here, the freezes in my keeper football league are due at 10 tonight, so I had some time to kill while waiting for last-minute trade offers)
