Controversy?

Postby stoggie10 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 11:01 pm

League members,

It has been brought to my attention that I may not have drafted fairly O:-) . I wanted to try a strategy that I do not believe many, if any, have tried and see if it works :-o . That is, drafting a lot of pitchers that will assure me of having a low WHIP and ERA as well as a lot of saves. I am aware that this will hurt me in the wins and k's category but are willing to trade the gains for the losses. Additionally, I had never heard of a minimum innings limit.

I really enjoy this league and do not wish to cause any trouble. If you feel that this is unsportsmanlike please share your honest opinion. I will not be offended. This is not a money league, thus, giving me the courage to attempt this strategy. If you feel this is not right then I will transform my roster accordingly. ;-D

Sincerely,

Stoggie

I think it's okay, fantasy baseball wouldn't be as much fun if everyone followed the same cookie cutter strategy. I think it's brazen, but I don't think it gives you that big if an edge, so I'm cool with it. Good luck, I'm actually interested to see the LIMA in action .

I don't have a problem with it.

I was unaware there was an unwritten rule against it.

Some owners punt saves, some steals. All strategies are welcome.

Those who stream pitchers in H2H, however, should rot in hell.

I believe it has been mentioned in his thread, I can't recall the response. I haven't read through it in a while. But I know it has been requested.
