You say it as if there is a button marked 'dominate for 4 months' which makes all of your hitters get hot at the same time and all your pitchers throw complete games at will every week
Maybe that's true in yahoo public leagues but in leagues where managers are actuallly putting some effort week in and week out, it's not as easy as you make it sound.
H2H is frustrating at times, because at times it seems unfair due to some lopsided matchups, etc.
But overall, I'd say H2H is much more fun and exciting, just knowing that every week is a game in itself, and every Sunday your matchup comes down to who performs and who doesn't perform.
A lot of people like roto on the Cafe because it's more fair. That might be true, the best team is going to win. But I don't find it nearly as rewarding or fun to play roto because I love the unpredictability in head to head and the trash talking, exciting matchups, etc. The best team doesn't always win every week but at least you know on Monday you have a clean slate again.
