True, now that I think about it - we are talking about the best strategy to stream pitchers (and to win 10-0 every week). I may have added the "forget ratios" idea as an additional strategy, not exactly the best. If you did want to load up on hitting early, you could balance the poor ratios with more relievers (when starters aren't playing)... but your ratios would be better to start if you drafted better pitching. Since more owners are streaming, you have to be a hawk on the waiver wire - you might as well get a leg up and draft better starters, hope the other teams aren't streaming as well as you.
As far as Kimbrel goes, you have to take him early but he's not necessarily a waste - I mean he is the most dominant closer and you need to win saves each week, if you like him so much and you don't want to worry too much about closers, get the best one and add a few late ones to compliment him.
