Roto or H2H Scoring

Postby leadoff1 » Sun Apr 18, 2004 6:15 pm

Just wondered what you guys liked better for scoring

I prefer H2H. I just believe it is more like the real game. Never has a series been decided on which team has more stolen bases, or more rbi's. Each day should be decided by the team you have on the field that day. I will be in the minority here but that is just my opinion.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

H2H for me, but I am a roster churner, which is not to popular with most fantasy players.

What do you mean by roster churner? And why is it not popular?

Wow, the poll is dead even. I would've thought it would have been more heavily favored towards roto.

I like both, and don't really have a preference. IMO, Roto gives a more accurate estimate of which team played better over the 162-game season. But, like Kentx said, H2H is more realistic. It gives more people a chance of winning and people are not eliminated from realistic chances of winning half way through the season. It requires more of a aspect of luck, though. Neither one is better, just a matter of preference.

I like Roto better, because it measures your whole season, not just a single week at a time. it is a better measure of how good your team is.

Roster churning is where I keep 3 open spots on my roster. With these spots I pick up pitchers and hitters every day and plug them into my lineup. This allows me to have starting pitchers every day, and sometimes extra hitters(like if my 1B is not playing on a sunday, I pick up a 1B from the waiver wire that is playing Sunday and plug him in). I win my league every year using this method.

The only reason I play fantasy games is the "fantasy" aspect. It makes me feel like I'm managing a real baseball team, so I like to play in leagues that are as similar to the bigs as possible. Just like in the real game, if you want to win in h2h, you have to be better than the team you're matched up against, and no one else. Just like the real game. So, h2h is my preference. I don't play fantasy sports to say that I knew more about baseball players than the other guys in my league; I just want to pretend I'm managing a big league team.
