Strategy Question

Postby micemi » Sun Feb 21, 2010 1:08 pm

I'm in a competitive 12 team mixed non keeper league with 2 head to head games per week, daily roster moves. League is 6x6 with OBP and QS being the extra categories. I was thinking about a slightly different strategy this year and wanted some feedback on it to see if you guys think it might work. I always take bats in the first 5-7 rounds based on value and wanted to do this again but I was considering ignoring the batting average category. Just draft huge power and speed but not focusing on BA unless it's in a tie breaker situation between two players. This would allow me to draft all huge power guys, or power speed combo guys without considering BA. Since the league is head to head, I was figuring batting average is a very unstable category anyway week to week and having such consistent domination in power and speed it may give me a good leg up each week in the matchups. I would try to do this without ignoring OBP. Guys like Howard, Reynolds and A. Gonzalez are good examples of ways I could get big power, ignore average, and not ignore OBP. Thoughts are appreciated.

Batting Average is very hard to predict... I like it. Sounds like you are playing in a H2H league anyway, which is impossible to really construct a team that could win BA consistently week in and week out.

I sub-consciously tend to do the same as well.

The more categories you have in a league, the more you can get away with punting some of them. Logic.

im thinking of the same strategy...but in an NL only leauge. I have the 8th pick out of 10....so i wont get Pujols, HRAm or any great BA with pick one. I am hoping to get Ryan Howard and Mark Reynolds with picks 8 and 13...and if I do...I would target Dunn, Werth, Stewart, Weeks, Cabrera etc with some stud pitchers.

BTW...if I had one of the first five picks, I woudnt invoke this strategy.
