Do you suppose a starting rotation of Santana, Sheets, Clemens, Smoltz, and Bonderman will be ok? ;-D

Dude that is a HUGE discovery!

Yes, pts leagues tend to overvalue pitchers, which is one reason why I hate points leagues. In my experience, you still need to load up on stud hitters early on, for the simple fact that getting dudes like Tejada or Arod at thin positions is still a great way to differentiate your team, and also because pitchers are inherently riskier and stud pitchers always seem to crawl out of the woodwork if you have a quick trigger finger for picking up free agent. Having a dependable hitter like Pujols or Helton is always awesome in a points league.

Also, you can always create a few revolving door roster spots to pick up pitchers with 2 scheduled starts, those IPs and two shots at getting a win make even scrubby 2-start pitchers a safer bet for points then many a stud pitcher. It's actually a real joke in my opinion. Boy do I hate points leagues.

so my draft is over... alot of question marks on the team but the potential on this team is through the roof. 12 team league, pick #4.

c- ramon hernandez
1b- jason giambi
2b- mark loretta(such a PIMP)
ss- C. Figgins
3b- Aramis Ramirez
IF- D. Young
OF- Magglio Ordonez
OF- Jaun Pierre
OF- Coco Crisp
UTil Dave Roberts
B- C. Monroe
B- C. Everett
B- C. Izturis
B- J. Lane
SP- J. Santana

SP- Kerry Wood
SP- J. Vazquez
SP- C. Carpenter
SP- J. Thomson
P- Fr. Rodriguez
P- S. Takatsu
P- A. Otsuka
B- K Rogers
B- Mike Adams



so as you can see my pitching is filthy. i picked mags pierre and roberts, then they all got hurt, so my of will be in trouble for a bit till they get healthy. but this team is very suited for my points league and should be a top notch team in the league

Have fun trading away your starters for hitters later in the season when you realize that SP is simply not as valuable as good hitting and some decnet RP. Having more SPs will always raise your WHIP and your ERA and lower your K/BB. Unless your league has only 2 relief spots and no P spots, there is no reason to have so many starters. You didn't blow your draft, but you better hope that those SPs you have don't bomb (and some always will) so they will be valuable enough to trade later in the season for some hitting. :-t

It's a POINTS league, WHIP/ERA/and K/BB don't "matter" in these types of leagues.

He's not going to dominate, but he'll do really well.
