However, given the scoring set up, I foresee that there's a team or two out there who has hoarded three or four closers who will do a lot better than you'd expect at first glance. Saves are pretty powerful in this league.
Indeed sir you are correct. I play on CBS with the same scoring as the above mentioned Fatguy. Last year we had one guy go all closers and ran away with the prize. W/S are equal points so a closer could get as many as say 6 saves a week.. SP if he has only one game and it happens to be a bad week will just kill you in H2H. This year I've gone with 4 closers and 3 stud SP'ers and am gonna try the balanced attack and see how it comes out. Mostly using 2 games starters is another strat that is widely used to devalue your no.1 picks of SP. In this scoring system Closers are the clear choice to having a great team if you are gonna draft pitchers early on. This year I chose to go for hitting more early on as I took hitters in 4 of the 1st 6 rds. Team 2 may look good on paper but from my own expierence over the past 4 years on CBS a team with more closers will most likely end up winning just because of how the scoring actually is.
but i'd say that those extra points from saves, can be offset by getting 2 points per inning from your starters. load up on inning eaters and you're set.
