Back for another fantasy baseball year.
I've joined a new league (16 team H2H) with some interesting stats:
Hitting: 1 point each for H,R,RBI,3B,HR,SB, and IBB.
Pitching: 1 point for K, 3 points for QS, 5 points each for W, SO, and CG, 10 points for NH
We draft 24 players, no more than 7 pitchers, with no relievers, all starters. C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 3 OF, U ~ 5 pitchers start each week.
I will be drafting 8th in a snake draft. Looking at the stats, I am leaning to the belief that star pitchers are the real cream of this league, so I'm tempted to take Halladay, Feliz, Lee type of pitcher first. I'm betting the 2 SS will be taken before me, along with the usual suspects.
Is my thinking about going after pitching first flawed? If not, why not.
