Strategy - Starting and Relief Pitchers

Postby beef » Sun Apr 13, 2003 12:08 pm

I'm still new to fantasy baseball and had a question regarding pitcher strategy.

Scenario 1 - Play the closers on your team that are on the same MLB team as the starting pitchers on the opposing fantasy team. This way you could possibly get the save if their pitcher wins the game and offset those points. Or if you're really lucky, their pitcher blows it early on and the MLB team battles back and you get the save.

Scenario 2 - Play the closers that are on the MLB teams that the starting pitchers MLB team is playing against. Then if their starter loses, you could possibly get the save.

Scenario 1 seems like the better one, but I'm really not sure. Any other ideas that I haven't thought of?

Definitely a great over all strategy. I'm in a head to head league which doesn't tally points for different stats, we do a total point tally and that's who wins each week. I'm more after the right strategy for week to week action. I can change my roster once a week and I'm trying to figure out the best way to get my pitching staff in order. Thanks for the help.

I keep my closers in at all times and just switch in the starting pitchers for that day. I'm in a head to head and have yet to come anywhere close to losing the saves categories. Out of seven pitchers, I always have three quality closers in the lineup. Besides, every once in a while, you'll get a win out of your closer.
It's time to roll the dice.
