Grabbing WW guys for spot starts will definitely lower your average, but is that decrease in average worth the nominal number of home runs, runs, rbi, and stolen bases that they'll get?
If played right, looking at matchups and splits, it could be a viable strategy for leagues without a maximum number of roster moves and games played. Otherwise, I don't think it's a good idea.
I don't understand how not agreeing with this strategy parallels wanting to start only Pujols to win BA. By NOT spot starting, you're NOT having a negative affect on your stats...
