What's the trend in fantasy baseball?

Roto leagues without a doubt have a very strong foothold within fantasy baseball because of the longeveity and history that they have had, but will H2H leagues ever catch up?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

I hit both, but I prefer roto. More skillbased, and I find more run than unrestricted H2H. Unrestricted, H2H is just a churning match.

H2H has that dramatic Win-Lose Sunday. With Roto it just goes on and on until the end. Sundays I set my H2H lineups first because they mean more.

I like H2H for fun, but roto does a better job determining the best owner because the "long-haul" mentality results in less luck being involved.

The best thing about H2H is the playoffs, but there is less luck involved in roto...

I have done roto my whole life and have trying head to head and points once each and didnt care for them much. I just think that roto give you a true sense of who the better team is

Just my opinion...

H2H is more baseball-like. If Pujols is destined to hit 40 Hr's and 120 RBI's, it doesnt matter when he does it. He can have those totals by all-star game but it still is 40-120 in the end. In H2H it does matter!! If he goes into a 2 week slump your team tanks with him, basically. Thats luck, the way it goes, slumps, call it what you like. Look at the Cards in last years W.S. They slumped, choked... THATS BASEBALL people. Its not crisp and clean like roto.
In 1 of my leagues last year the 1st place finisher played the 4th place finisher in the W.S. Guess what? The 4th placer won it because of a 2 week slump by the 1st-placer. Thats Baseball.
I play both for variety but in dynasty keeper league its H2H.

BTW...my 2 championships ever were in roto.
