Hitting is so unpredictable !

Postby A's » Mon May 15, 2006 3:17 am

I think hitting is unpredictable, for example this week my pitching carried me to a 6-4 record in a 12 team 5x5 category league.
My current overall record is 29-20, and after tonight will be 35-24, and thats credit to my hitting. The thing was I had a good draft and made some incredible trades. But hitting being unpredictable was really bad this week, here are my batters, pitching is way on the bottom and if you are wondering how my pitching got me thru, it was thanks to my aces and efficient closer's
Batting:
C B. McCann
2B M. Giles
2B T. Iguchi
3B E. Chávez
SS J. Rollins
Util T. Hafner
1B/OF L. Berkman
1B/OF N. Swisher
3B/OF C. Blake
OF J. Bay
OF G. Sizemore

Berkman was in a slump, same with bay. Chavez was out 6 of the 7 games played with sickness. and blake was playing good but i just got him in one on one deal with chacon

Do you guys think i will continue doing bad with my hitting, i know sound like an amateur but I am wondering if I should deal bay or rollins or stay put and wait it out. Thanks
Leave a link or i will remember your name and comment on your post, thanks again . bye

That's why roto is a better indication of fantasy baseball skill. I have seen countless teams dominate all year and have a bad week during the playoffs. A whole season down the drain. It is my opinion, but roto offers much more of a challenge, plus you don't have to deal with those damn streaming starters.

I officially denounce H2H...
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

roto definitely the way to go, that way, it's all about the #s. H2H adds a whole unneceesary level of stress to the whole thing.

Example:

10 team league

As the season progresses, you are awarded points based on how many of a certain stat you have, compared to everyone else in your league. Points change daily based on performance.

If after a week, month, and ulitmately the end of the season, if you have the most HRs, RBIs, best ERA or WHIP, etc..., you get 10 points, if you are last, 1 point.

All category points are then added and the best overall team wins.

My current standings: out of a possible 10

Runs - 6
HRs - 2
RBIs - 2
SB - 4
AVG - 1
Wins - 8
Saves - 6.5 (I am tied with someone)
Ks - 10
ERA - 10
WHIP - 10

As you can see, I am pitching heavy, and I just dealt Carpenter to get M. Cabrera. With roto, you have to consider entire seasons versus weekly matchups. Just seems a little more pure to me.

Hope this helps. It's late and I've been drinking...

LOL.....I find roto to be much easier to win at for some reason (maybe that is why roto is so boring).

Yeah roto is much easier than H2H. They both have different strategies and neither is better than the others. H2H playoffs are extremely frustrating though, I'd rather the team that comes in 1st just win it all rather than have the playoff system.

i understand why roto is "better" but there is just something to be said laying an ass-whopping on someone your work with and being able to talk about it all week. :-)

back to the original topic, i had a bad week too... chavez, utley, figgins, bonds but still won, if this is my worst week i should be ok. ;-D

this is why I wish you could have a 5 by 5 by 1 league.

It is scored like normal roto, but you also play someone that week. If you have the most wins, you get the most points, so on. Would be fun and keep people hopelessly out of it involved.
