This was a great tactic in my futility league last year... :-D

Hah futility league. Thanks for the great idea. Nice spin on things that I'm going to try out next season. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Can't take credit (or blame ;-) ) for the idea - an amigo of mine came up with this while watching an Orioles-Blue Jays game several years ago. Go figure... :-D

Anyway, I'm sure many others have thought of this as well. It is an interesting twist, though.

It makes some sense. Like today for example, you get 2 games at Coors. I'm sitting an ailing Bret Boone for Jack wilson. I think the key question is, do you have a roster space for WW player? Next series, grab someone like Marlon Byrd
Alan Trammell should be in the Hall

I still have Burnitz on most of my teams for this reason. when they're playing at Coors, he plays. On the road he's a fill-in only.

So far it's O.K., but not outstanding>>

Well, you can't really complain too much, considering that only Bonds and Dunn have a higher season OPS than Burnitz is producing at home...

Burnitz will jack 40, or very close to that. The guy is a fine power hitter even when not in Coors - a lock for 30+ as long as he gets consistent ab's.

I waived Julio Lugo for Rolls Royce Clayton since he has the doubleheader at Coors and I need to make up a couple games at short, we'll see how it goes

You can probably set yahoo up to do it, just invert the points awarded for the categories.
