Cafe League System

Postby pgbridge2000 » Wed Dec 22, 2004 10:48 pm

I know that there already is a cafe elite league (and whatever drafts end up being leagues) but I think that with all the fantasy baseball minded people here there should maybe some kind of large set of leagues, you based on like experience and stuff with anyone who wants in them and as you do well you can move up and down the latter depending on each years results???

(Kind of like the high school and college style leagues that have a ton of divisions and the best teams move up a division each year and the worst down a division)

I don't know just some brain drippings.

Ugh, I just can't get over the frustration that is H2H. Please, someone tell me why I should play H2H? Am I missing out?

No, you're not missing out on anything. H2H is nice for the casual fantasy sports fan, but it is not an accurate scoring method, if you're trying to determine who has the best fantasy mind out there. The league champion is often the guy that makes the playoffs, then happens to have a group of players that get hot for the last month of the season, rendering the first 4-5 months worthless.

Plus if you're playing in one of those 5x5, Roto style H2H leagues, the formula for winning is so simple: draft good closers and hitters, neglect SP....if you do a good job of this, your chances of winning are pretty high (I’ve used that method year after year and it’s always worked for me..). Old fashioned, points based H2H leagues are a bit more challenging, but are an even worse measure of fantasy prowess.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

h2h to me is about a new rival every week. You against me. mono y mono. You want some of this punk? Bring it on!!!

It's all about that kind rivalry that you build throughout the years, especially in a keeper league, that makes it awesome to me.

I love H2H

*gasp* You mean it's like real life???

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

:-b

Can the Cardinals make the same complaint to the Red Sox? After all, we did win more games than they did during the regular season. Those last 4 games just rendered "first 4-5 months worthless."

The question is, "Do you want to emulate the real game, or do you want to play by a new set of rules?" If you want to emulate the real-life game, H2H is the best fantasy way to do it. If you want to make up your own set of rules, than roto is the way to do it.

It's really a preference. I see neither as being superior, just variations on a theme.

Im with you - roto is the only way to play.

I guess I would be more apt to play H2H if there were SEVERE ristrictions on WW claims or IP and games played. Jockying the WW is way too common a strategy in H2H, and its just not something I want to deal with.
