Since a number of contributors to this post stated they were interested in seeing the results of this strategy, I am going to post updates every week. If anyone wants to check out the two leagues I'm in, here are the links:

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffi ... ueId=17132

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffi ... ueId=32810

I'm the St. Pete Punch n Bags in the first link, and the NPR Punch n Bags in the second.

So far, I'm up 6-4 in the first league, leading all 5 pitching categories and SBs. In the second league, I'm up 5-4-1, leading 4 of 5 pitching categories, SBs and tied for SVs.

I'll post final results tomorrow, once the first week is completed.

Alright - Week 1 is basically in the books (1 inning left in Cub / Brewer game), so here's my results with this strategy.

First league, won 5-4-1.
Won SBs, Ks, Ws, ERA, WHIP, tied in SVs

Second League, won 6-4.
Won Rs, SBs, Ks, Ws, SVs, ERA

Since my focus is on pitching and SBs, I'll state my overall rank in those categories for each league:

First league:
SBs - 1st out of 10
Ks - Tied 1st out of 10
Ws - Tied 3rd out of 10
SVs - Tied 2nd out of 10
ERA - Tied 3rd out of 10
WHIP - 4th out of 10

Not bad, but not as dominate as I'd hoped for. The two keeper pitchers that really hurt me in that league were Lincecum and R. Johnson. Of the FA pitchers that didn't help, Manny Parra and Javier Vazquez stand out.

Second League:
SBs - 2nd out of 10 (There's a team that basically mirrors mine in speed - they stole 15)
Ks - 2nd out of 10
Ws - Tied for 5th out of 10
SVs - 1st out of 10
ERA - 8th out of 10
WHIP - 9th out of 10

I was obviously very lucky with my match-up this week. Not happy with my pitching at this point in terms of results. Lincecum, Lee, Dice-K, Shields, and Morrow all performed well below expectations. I assumed I would miss on one or two starters, which is why I drafted so many. Of all the guys who performed poorly, the only one I'm really worried about is Lee. His success last year was due to Greg Maddux-like control, and I'm unsure if he can even approach those types of results this year.

Good news is Shields pitched well today, Santana was unbelievable, and I've got Scherzer coming back this week.

Bottom line - my pitching has to turn it around, or I'm dead.

So, 1-0 to start the season in each league. I will post again next week with more updates.
