head to head question

Postby TheArch1tect » Sat Mar 06, 2004 12:51 pm

is it okay to semi-punt pitchers in a h2h league? cause last time i overloaded on pitchers but i finished in 4th overall. would loading up on hitters be a good strategy?

It's hard to punt on either because there are usually even categories so both are going to be equally important at least in the Yahoo! head to head system

You've got the right thinking. Load up on big bats early in the draft and get your pitching later. Try to only take 2-3 pitchers in the first half of the draft and then use your last picks to fill your rotation/bench with sleeprs/longshots. It is always easier to find a hot pitcher on the WW than a batter.
This way, you will win most of the batting cats each week (over players who drafted pitching early) and you can make daily changes to choose the best matchups among your pitchers to win the W/K cats. There usually aren't innings limits in H2H, so you can play as many as you can. You may suffer in ERA/WHIP, but an 8-2 win each week is still a win!
