Is it bad to have 3 offensive guys from the same team?

I didn't try to lump a bunch of yankees on my team but it happened. I have soriano, jeter, and b. williams. I'm not playing b. williams right now but it seems like he is getting out of the slump and I would like to have him back in the line up.

I try to aviod 3 guys from the same team, but if they are the right guys, then I don't worry about it. I've got Posada/Giambi/Soriano on one of my teams this year. Doesn't bother me. :-D

I don't mind having several hitters from the same team...asa long as they are quality players....In H2H leagues, you have to manage your line up a little more...to avoid unfavorable match ups...

I don't like having alot of SP's from the same team though...unless its Zito, Mulder and Hudson.... :-D

I don't think its a huge problem if they are decent players, but it will leave you prone to slumps at times. In my league, I have Nomo, Brown and O.Perez all on one team (which makes me even more irritated with the Dodger offense), plus Lo Duca. On the same team, I have Manny, Nomar and Lowe as well as Mussina and Wells, it's no big deal.

no not at all... it's not like baseketball where if one teammate scores 40 it's quite unlikely the other will also score 40.

but baseball, heck, you can have both guys on the same team have multi-homer games.

I like drafting guys that bat one after the other:

Nomar+Manny
Wells+Delgado
Sheff+Jones

makes your numbers a little bit more predictable which is always to your advantage.
The key to Fantasy Sports is NOT about Sports but rather the "manipulation of numbers" in your favor

MASTER THOSE NUMBERS

A case could be made on having Huff/Baldelli. I guess that just leaves the Tigers. :-D

A guy in our H2H league had Delgado, V. Wells and S. Stewart. He made the 1st-half playoffs as a wildcard (highest points after the first 5 teams) but he lost to the 2nd seed team.

With the trade of Stewart going to the Twins, he's still looking good. So I guess, yea, you can have 3 guys from the same team as long as they're producing.

Good Grief....we never had a chance..... }:-)
