What if you only have three pitching categories!?

Postby stratusfactionrt » Thu Mar 18, 2004 9:23 pm

Yahoo 16-team points league: GP (1), R (1), H (2), 2B (2), 3B (3), HR (7), RBI (1), SB (2), GP (1), W (8), SV (5), K (1). Basically wins, saves, and K's are all that matters. Losses, ERA, WHIP: none of that counts.

What are some good pitchers I should try to pick up? ...like what all-around big name pitchers can I get rid of for other players to help my team?

My team:
C J. Estrada (Atl- C)
C J. LaRue (Cin - C)
1B A. Huff (TB - 1B,RF,DH)
2B M. Young (Tex - 2B)
3B T. Wigginton (NYM - 3B)
SS E. Renteria (StL - SS)
LF S. Stewart (Min - LF)
CF T. Redman (Pit - CF)
RF R. Hidalgo (Hou - RF)
OF G. Sheffield (NYY - RF)
OF R. Mondesi (Pit - RF)
OF G. Anderson (Ana - LF,DH)
Util F. Catalanotto (Tor - LF,RF,DH)
Util P. Konerko (CWS - 1B)
BN J. Hairston Jr. (Bal - 2B)

SP M. Mulder (Oak - SP)
SP R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)
RP E. Guardado (Sea - RP)
RP T. Percival (Ana - RP)
RP J. Nathan (Min - RP)
P B. Wickman (Cle - RP)
P T. Lilly (Tor - SP)
P M. DeJean (Bal - RP)
BN T. Ohka (Mon - SP)
BN R. Harden (Oak - SP)
BN E. Milton (Phi - SP)
BN J. Peavy (SD - SP)

Thanks!

What a weird league. You may try to deal Mulder. He relies more on contact outs than K's, and the A's offense may be even weaker than last year w/o Tejada and also no Foulke.

OK pitchers on good teams (Tim Wakefield, say) may be more attractive than great pitchers on bad teams (Randy Johnson, maybe?), because of the expected wins.

But, with the scoring system you posted, offense rules and pitching is an afterthought.

Yeah weird is right, but it's kinda cool thinking about different things instead of the normal 5x5.

Thanks for the tips, anyone else?
