Been there, done that. I'm kicking myself for not starting Lowry. He could have pushed me over the top :-t

Lots of tragic stories in H2H leagues. My pitching sunk me all year, so my demise was expected. !+)

I have been okay with H2H this year, but it was a scrap to get in the playoffs. The public league was brutal, because I usually clean up in those. This year I barely made the playoffs, but now Im in the championship game by tieing in the second round and winning ERA.
Its basically been 4 weeks of playoffs for me, as I was in 7th place in the last two weeks of the regular season and had to scramble. I made the playoffs by half a game.

In the Winners League I finished second in the regular season and made it to the championship. The league that I lost was tough all year so I dont mind it. Just happy to have made two championships. Hopefully I can win one! I havent won a winners league yet.

I lost 8-7 in my first-week playoff game riding some really cold bats, only to have my team pop 17 homeruns and all the peripherals that go with 'em the week after.

The law of averages played itself out, but with poor timing :-P

For these reasons alone, roto is better. At least one bad week in roto won't eliminate you from the hunt...it may hurt your chances, but won't eliminate you.

After the week I just went through, I'm not so sure about that... :-o
