i actually think that it matters just a lil in roto* but obvisouly a lot less than in h2h when you have to be..

a) drunk
b) high
c) sober but having an apocalyptic brain fart

... to draft a lot of hitters from the same team. :-°

*its more of slight "risk" compared to a straight disadvantage in h2h.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

I disagree. How is it any riskier than two guys on different teams? Two teams can slump simultaneously as easily as one can. And, just because the team is slumping it doesn't mean all the hitters will be. If you pick good consistent guys, they'll always produce.

I have M. Cabrera and Lowell on my h2h team. Even when Florida wasn't winning anything, and they'd have only two or three runs scored, Cabrera and Lowell would have all of the RBI's, hits and runs. If you pick good guys, it doesn't matter what team they're on, they'll produce.

With just two players from the same team it makes little difference. But when you start getting above two players it can have a dramatic difference and it can be a quick death to a team in H2H playoffs.

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

I've got Ortiz, Manny, and Nomar and it usually pays off more often than not.

As long as the players are good, there's no problem in Roto or really in H2H too.

Here's what I've got:
A-Rod, Jeter, Giambi
Huff, Crawford
Thome, Abreu

No complaints here ;-D

If you want to factor in pitching it gets more interesting on my team
A-Rod, Jeter, Giambi, Vazquez, Brown :-D
Huff, Crawford
Thome, Abreu, Wagner
Berkman, Oswalt
M. Cabrera, Penny
Hudson, Mulder ;-D

A first place team no doubt :-D

A good point, but really it is just luck of the draw. I really don't think it can be proved that you are at a disadvantage in the playoffs, since team slumps are so unpredictable and if the players are good, they should continue to be good. More than anything, it is luck. And that is why I don't play H2H.
