Who to Start Message Board
You are an idiot.
You want more bats. He has the roster spots...but his ignorant #$%$ has those roster spots occupied by pitchers.
I have never said to take a chance on pitchers. Pitching is deep and someone has to pitch every day. You don't even need to draft starting pitchers. I could draft 23 hitters, then drop 10 of them after the draft and fill my starting SP and RP from the FA pool and trounce 98% of H2H fantasy baseball players.
Hitters mean everything.
- In standard Yahoo! H2H leagues there are 10 scoring categories.
- 7 categories are "counting stats" (R, HR, RBI, SB; W, K, SV)
- 3 categories are "average stats" (BA; ERA, WHIP)
- All hitters can contribute in up to 5 statistical categories (all #$%$ stats).
- Even the best pitchers make meaningful contributions in just 4 pitching categories (don't believe me...how many SV does Kershaw have in his entire career)
As such, hitters are more valueable than pitchers.
Further, hitters appear in 5-7 games a week.
Most SP only appear in one game a week.
As such, hitters help you a lot more often than pitchers.
H2H is scored on a weekly basis.
Average stats are nearly impossible to predict on a weekly basis.
As such, counting stats should be your weekly focus.
- Hitters help you in 4 counting stats on a weekly basis
- SP only help you in 2 counting stats on a weekly basis.
- RP only help you in 1 counting stat on a weekly basis
These FACTS are indisputable.
Please...take the time to think before you post and do not ever attempt to admonish me if my six year old can out logic and reason you.

A little weak?
Your team is a lot weak...as are your management skills. Picking 8th won't help you. Quite frankly...it probably doesn't matter who you pick.
I have similar issues, numerous players that I could drop for him but all are playing well. That is what makes me wonder how Yahoo comes up with their rankings. Is it the experts sitting down and ranking or is it a formula they use or both? Like a standard points league formula without upside.
Never played h2h but I get that SP is less important than in roto. Asked for strategies in 12 team 5x5 roto whereas how late to grab a SP in order to #$%$ as many 4-5 cat bats. Also asked thoughts about SP's who would be around later that could approach solid numbers. While goons are fighting over one cat hitters as starters I'm drafting mchugh or keuchel or shoemaker or Salazar. I like the teams I come up with in mocks. Don't feel alone in this approach but am I just a closet h2h'er playing roto? trap is set...
We need to replace 1 Manager in a Yahoo, 12 team mixed keeper league with standard scoring. It's a H2H league and it's free. I sent you an invite. Thanks
