ten team, H2H, single season, autodraft, Yahoo league amongst friends, for fun. I would guess that i'm the only manager who knows of the Cafe, or of Baseball Monster...the other managers will probably be relying on the most part on yahoo rankings/info...
So, these are the cats:
Hitting: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG,
Pitching: W, SV, HR, K, ERA, WHIP, K/9
if i plug those into BBM, the first thing that jumps out is some seriously high values for Relief Pitching. Last year, post-draft, i realized the same thing, and used as many relief pitchers (the dual-eligible ones as Starters) as possible, riding that strategy to regular season dominance (my team collapsed in the playoffs... manny/beltran/liriano/pedro being the main culprits)
Although this is only my 2nd year playing FBB, i've read enough to realize that relief pitching is pretty volatile from year to year, so my question is, when in the draft should i begin getting closers? Would their high impact in this league have you drafting them earlier than usual/stockpiling them, or would you advise waiting and drafting them more toward the end and playing the wire to grab the hot guys?
also, with these rankings, are there positional players that you think would be good targets/bargains, aside from those listed in the Yahoo rankings thread?
any other advice on how to win this league?
