Did I get too cute w/ my pitchers? WHIR

I have a stacked lineup in my 5x5 H2H league... but did I take too many chances with my starters?

You do not have a guy who is a definite ace which usually helps in H2H leagues. However, having a lot of guys with potential to throw great games helps in H2H so you might be able to get by. Cain, Hamels, Harden could be good but at least one should flame out. Patterson and Bush are nice sleepers but you are probably going to need some help on your staff since depth is not a strength (depending on your league size). If lineup is stacked you can get by with on and off weeks for pitching. Keep an eye on hot wire pitchers.

Well this is a classic high risk high reward scenario. I like those pitchers (Haren, Hamels, Cain, Bush, James) but you never know what they will bring to the table, none of them are considered top 5 aces, they good, but great? im not sure yet.

I think your fine. Sure you have some high risks but even if a couple of them pan out you will be fine. And the other ones that don't you can just cut them and pick up some other players.

well i think you will be fine with cain and hamels ... i think both have the potential to be in the top 10-15 sp

i also think james, harden and patterson will have good seasons and should help carry your team (id assume u took stud batters earlier)

I think you have some good potential players in Bush and Sowers. Cain and Hamels to are some good young talent. While I too don't see a true ace., you should have a solid core and maybe you can bundle some of them for an ace.
