Thanks guys! It is people like you that assist us other "lazy folk" in winning championships.
I appreciate those of you that are willing to put all these hours of research into your rankings, and then are unselfish enough to share them with the rest of us. Kudos to you!

I have always went with 70/30 .... simply because I have a knack for pulling pitching talent off the wire during the season ... 75-80 dollars always seems to be more than enough to put together a decent staff.

I am sure that if you are talented enough to be able to do that EVERY year and EVERY draft than stay with it, however I don't think the average fantasy baseball owner is that good at doing what you do. I prefer the safer method, which I will promise you delivers a a first or second place finish each time providing you can manage your team after the draft. I feel that winning a champioship is 60% draft success and the other 40% is because of management, trades, free agency, etc...

This is exactly what my pitching budget looks like give or take a few dollars. So I guess I actually use a combination of the 60/40 and 70/30 split. There are always tons of 5.00 to 10.00 quality pitchers out there. and I agree that the draft is 60% of your season ..

Tier 1 ($35.00-$40.00)
20.00
15.00

Tier 2 ($30.00-$35.00)
10.00
10.00
10.00

Tier 3 ($12.00-$15.00)
5.00

1.00

Nice budget. I am curious but how well do you actually stick to that come draft time? I have went in with that theory before and found that the guys I thought would go for tier actually went for more because after the studs were gone there was a rush for above average pitcher or average. Also how is the talent in your league? If there are some novices this theory could work well, however if you go in with guys that have the same value on some of your SLEEPERS as you do you wont get them for the cheap price you think

I actually do pretty good sticking to it. And I always avoid the bidding wars, but I do have a couple of hilarious stories about them.
My budget is just a quideline .. any extra money saved or spent always goes to the next teir down. I have had a couple of drafts where I walked out with (3) 1.00 pitchers in tier 3, and even had one where I had (4) 5.00 dollar picthers in tier 3. ( I swept all of the pitching that year) :-°

As far as the talent .. I will call it mixed. Most of these guys have been in the this league for 15 plus years (not with me) but a few of the guys just don't get the whole 'numbers game' very well. And a few of them show up to the draft with their "Magazines" and always finish out of the money. Its too funny. :-D I would say that there is 8 of us competeing for the top 3 spots annually.

I would share my batting budget, but there is no way to set it until rosters get set.

Its nice having guys that basically donate some cash to the pot. Too bad they can't write it off their taxes :-b

LMAO ... agreed .. ;-D
at 300.00 a pop, I am sure a few of them have figured out a way to write it off.
