last season in my keeper i was close to sweeping pitching. 1st in SV, ERA, WHIP, K/9. 2nd in K, but only tied 6th in W. a result of me being closer heavy, and really only having peavy, webb, bedard, young as SP. 12 teams.
the guy i lost to in the league swept the hitting cats, but most cats were very close. his lineup? atkins, beltran, holliday, howard, kinsler, markakis, magglio, posada, reyes, wright, weeks. his team was filthy. this year his offense is great and leading some cats, but some other teams (mostly mine) have caught up. pitching, its not looking like ill get close to sweeping again. i traded away peavy and bedard to upgrade my offense.
and no, this isnt the most competitive league, but its fun.
The closest I've come is currently in Behrens' Roto League. I don't think I'll get it, due to only having 8 pts. in Wins, but for awhile I had straight 12s across the other 4, and currently have 12 in Saves, with 11 in each of K and ERA, and 11.5 in WHIP.
I'm only in 1st place in one of the pitching categories in my main money keeper league, but I have a legitimate chance to sweep them:
ERA: 2nd (3.64, leader has 3.52) Ks: 3rd (812, 2nd has 820, leader has 858 but he's way over the innings pitched max) Saves: 2nd (78, leader has 82 but I'm closing fast) W: 2nd (62, leader has 66, but the leader is way over IP max so I'll easily catch him) WHIP: 1st (1.22, next guy is at 1.25)
I think ERA and K's will be the toughest for me to finish 1st in - but I have a shot.
