Having more than 2 hitters on the same team, is it bad?

Having more than 2 hitters on the same team, is it bad?

Postby Robman » Thu Jun 26, 2003 7:42 pm

In a H2H league do you think it's bad or good having more than 2 hitters who play on the same team? For instance lets say you have Mike Lowell, Pudge and Castillo who all play on the Marlins. Do many of you go by the rule of not having more than 2 hitters on the same team? If so, why?

Unless the team you're talking about is Detroit, there's no reason not to have multiple players from the same team.

I had 1,2,3 for the pirates for awhile and it worked out nicely. Had to break it up because I was able to get Pierre so I dropped Lofton. Now I just have kendall and giles who are the only real producers outside of lofton on the pirates.

we have a guy in our league that has Walker,Garciaparra,Ramirez,Milllar and damon. Huge Redsox fan. He's in 2nd place in our H2h league. Although i dont care for more than 2 from the same team in h2h it can work out. I just dont care for more than 2 because of rainouts and/or team slumps then your whole week is shot because of something like that.

Generally I like to stick with 2 or less. Then again, it depends on who the players are. If it's Giambi, Soriano, Jeter or Arod, Gonzales, Palmeiro, or something similar, I'd have no problems with it.

It's not bad at all, unless the players are not good.

Soriano, Giambi, Williams, Jeter

Pujols, Rolen, Edmonds, Renteria

A-rod, Juan Gone, Raffy, Everett

Delgado, Wells, Cat

I'd love to have any 3 from those lists on my roster.

I actually have Soriano, Giambi, and Williams on a team. No complaints so far.

Ive got Ichiro and Edgar in one of my teams, and so far, they've provided the kind of production that is expected of them... B-)

I don't think it's a bad thing to have up to 3 even on the same team if they are quality hitters.

I have Hart, Edmonds, Pujols & Kent, Berkman, Ausmus in an NL-only league.

OK....so Ausmus sucks but when you have 2 catcher spots in an NL-only league with 9 teams you tend to get stuck with an Ausmus.

It's not that bad. I can't complain.

Check out my starting oufield:

Chipper Jones (LF-Atl)
Andruw Jones (CF-Atl)
Gary Sheffield (RF-Atl)

Oh yeah, I also have Vinny Castilla (3B-Atl), but I think I'm going to drop him for Cintron.
