Agreed. In H2H, I try to focus on the countable stats that tend to be steadier (R/HR/RBI) and I go after pitchers who can yield healthy K rates while keeping their ratios manageable enough so as not to blow up.

The thing about H2H is it's a flexible format where you can try to focus on ERA/WHIP/SV with relievers who have excellent ratios (as well as a few starters) or a well-rounded staff of SP that's focused on winning W and K, but can stay in the hunt for ERA/WHIP. I'm used to playing in H2H leagues with an annual move limit and I find that having quality SP works out best. Spot starting pitchers also adds an edge to a staff that's already quality in and of itself.
