Actually fellas I kinda misinformed y'all a bit. It's actually a 6X5 with avg, hr, rbi, sb, runs and hits for batters and the usual 5 for pitchers. I'd assume this just means batter's values are even greater now?

you guessed it. I would draft nothing but hitters and closers and play the waivers for pitchers. you'd win at least 6-5 every week.

Hey trev, we can only have 2 RP (5 SP) in our lineup so I can't really employ that strategy although it sounds good to me.

H2H draft

Postby yankee.fan » Thu Jan 09, 2003 6:31 pm

I'll first say that it really depends on the scoring system, if it isn't too radical then I always follow the same strategy. I rank all of my players in the overall fashion and just take the best available. It's done very well for me so far, four years straight. I've found TSN's list to be pretty close to mine.

I tend to favor good hitting over good pitching. I've always been able to find some decent pitching after the draft that gets under everyone's radar. Alot of teams bring up guys during the year that can make your roster great. I've managed to scoop guys like Oswalt and Prior after the draft each year.

But be careful, know your scoring system. Last year sportsline changed the scoring of Saves from 5 to 10 points. Closers were par with Starters. I ended up with a bench of closers that kept me undefeated.

I enjoy the H2H with guys I know just for the trash-talking and the rotisserrie for the public leagues.

Yeah, league rules and scoring rules dominate the answers. I play in H2H leagues, but instead of 5x5 or 6x5 or whatever, it is fantasy points. (hosted by Sandbox, for better or worse).

Those leagues require solid SP bigtime. I played in one league where the guy tried the "fish the WW for SP" and got clobbered. Especially if there is a fixed number of games (162) for position players and starters.

H2H is a different animal if it's fantasy points, though. I prefer it to 5x5, so maybe I'm not such a traditionalist. But the trash talking is far better!

I agree with both of you. If you play Roto or point or h2h you better bring 3 different strategies all depending on the way the league rules are set.
