Based on a H2H league. Runs, HRs, RBIs, Avg. I should have an advantage in each week. Steals? Maybe I can snag that category every so often w/ Kaz, A-Rod, & Young and timely stealing. I can afford to throw out one category like steals, and not worry about it.

4 closers, I should have the end on SVs and also having dominant closers, I'll be able to compete in all 5 pitching categories.

As for Fausto Carmona, 2009 Outlook: His hip injury certainly had to have a hand in his wildness and seeming inability to throw strikes. He seems to have corrected whatever problems he had in 2008, at least for now, with a strong showing in the Dominican Winter League, but whether that success will carry over to the 2009 season remains to be seen. There's a lot of risk here, but if his 2008 decline was truly only the result of his injury, a return to his 2007 numbers would not be too far-fetched, either.

4 out 9 batters w/ an avg over .290. It's not locked up the avg. category but I could compete in that category. The avg category can go back and worth, hot streaks, cold streaks. That category is really up for grabs each week. Kinda like era and whip. Any team can win those categories any giving week.
