Having multiple players on the same team...

Postby Spokes » Mon Jul 19, 2004 6:44 am

I have 4 duos on my team (V. Martinez/Hafner, Soriano/Teixiera, Burrell/Rollins, B. Giles/Loretta) and I just wanted to know what your thinking is on this situation. Do you like having multiple players on the same team on your team or do you like to spread out the talent? Even I have those 4 duos, I like the 2nd choice just because if that team that you have 2 or more players on gets shut out, that's a nice-sized chunk of your team that probably produced nothing. Now, I know there is a flip side in saying that, well, if that same team goes off, you have a good chance of having really nice days from both your guys off that team, but I am a very pessimistic person.
What's your opinion/preference?

No preference. Just get the best players, regardless of their real life affiliation.

Players being on the same team dont really matter much in roto baseball, not like they do in football. Just get the good players regardless of their team afiliations. I have Young/Teixiera/F Corder (thats worked out pretty well for me) Aramis and Zambrano (also worked real well), Hudson and Mulder (would be awesome if Huddy wasn't hurt) and I have Giles/Drew/Estrada.

I generally like to spread it out a little bit. If that team struggles or gets shut out you're screwed.

IMO it has no bearing in Roto. Everything washes out over time. In H2H I definitely try to avoid too many players from the same team although I won't pass up on good value just to follow the rule. In H2H consistency is the key. If you have three or more players in the same lineup it can be devastating during a team slump. Of course the reverse happens when the team is on fire but in H2H beating someone by a small margin is just as good as blowing them out.

It's a cool idea, until that team takes a Thursday off or gets rained out. Then, you possibly lose out at several positions for that day.

I have blalok, tex, and soriano and don' t have any complaints. It wasn't done on purpose but they are all solid players so I don't think I would have done it any other way.
