The Idea, whether wrong or right, is to draft 6 or 7 starting pitchers out of 9, and then be able to save my last 2 or 3 draft choices for setup men like bell, broxtan, betancourt. These pitchers have high k's, low whip & Low ERA's and also collect wins. This way in rounds like 8 - 13 where I would be picking closers, I can still take very good hitters and dominate alot of the hitting categories. The remaining 4 pitching categories besides saves would still do very well. But this is just a theory, and I've only successfully done it in mock drafts over at MDC. I appreciate all the input, and I'm still curious to see if anyone else has won without saves.
