Pitching strat. - How will I do?

Postby Hbj79 » Mon Mar 03, 2003 4:40 am

I am in a head to head roto league. THe only pitch limitations is that you must have 7IP a week.

I plan on starting 5 top flight relievers every day. Smoltz, Gagne, Wagner, Dotel, Rhodes. I will then plug in 2 starters almost every day. This will give me wins, k's, So, Whip, Era.

To get these relievers I had to deal away Millwood and O.Perez. But I still have Halladay, Leiter, K.Brown, Benson, and about 5 other good starters to take in and out. Can I win pitching?

You should have no problem winning saves, but the wins will be a different story if you're only starting two SP's. I'd drop Rhodes and plug in another sp with Smoltz, Gagne, Wagner and Dotel you should still be set.

In theory that strategy would work but pitchers are just too unreliable. I played Smoltz, Gagne, Nen, Dotel, and JC Romero last year and plugged in pitchers like Greg Maddux and Jarrod Washburn and Curt Schilling. It just isn't reliable man. It's better to go with stud starting pitchers and 3 closers. I tell you from experience.
