Hi to all. I'm new to Fantasy Baseball and have my first ever draft today. I've played Fantasy Football for 9 years and Hockey for 2, so am familiar w/different strategies involved. Here's my league info:
8 or 10 team HTH (last position not filled yet)
10 x 11?
We need to field a minimum of 20 IP
I have a couple basic questions:
based on my league scoring, what are good positions to fill up my bench positions with? I assume a couple hitters & a spare pitcher? Is it common to have so many P postitions?
I've noticed that some positions are scarce in players - 2B, C. Is there an advantage to grabbing say, 2 Cs to prevent the opposition from having a stud (or use for trade bait).
With so few teams, I can surmise that the waiver wire should be full of quality players at certain positions -OF and SP?
These may seem very basic questions, but bear with me, I'm a quick study.
5x5 is the norm. (5 hitting: avg, runs, hr, rbi, steals, and 5 pitching: era, whip, k's, wins, saves).
6x6 is getting more popular though.
10x11 is a lot of catagories.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Is this a league with your friends, or did you just join one anonymously on Yahoo?
I have a real problem with the amount of catagories. Basically with that many the luck factor is huge - the winner will usually be the luckiest guy rather than the smartest manager. Strategies become pointless.
Since this is your first yr, I would STRONGLY recommend you play 5x5.
I have been playing for a while, and I know Id be completely lost in the type of setup you are about to get into.
