Not a chance. You'd be at the bottom of two categories, essentially throwing away points. A large error people make when cooking up these types of stretegies is that they assume everything always stays the same. Yeah, batters are pretty consistent year in year out, but they aren't always the same. Same goes for your RPs, their production isn't the same from year to year. Also, in taking offense first, you'll be missing out on some of the best RP's that there are.
Take starting pitchers. You'll need to balance out your team in order to win your league. If this strategy worked, it would have been figured out already and used heavily.
Absolutely. For everyone that has won using LIMA or some other similar strategy there are hundreds that win by simply drafting a nicely balance.
Very well written comment Thursday.
Waiting till completion of offensive draft until drafting SPs: Good Idea.
See I don't even agree with that. I rarely take a pitcher before the 4th, but I'll cirtainly have 2 or 3 on my team before my offence is complete. I've never liked the idea of having to rely entirely on 'potential'.
