Actually I prefer the H2H format. It takes different type of skills and if you are in a league with a bunch of friends, you create rivalries, etc.
Our league is a keeper so teams that are out of it in August make crazy trades for keepers. Also, H2H format forces you to put together a team that is more consistent and built to last towards the end of the season for the playoffs.
In H2H there is way too much roster churning. People add pitchers just cause they have 2 starts that week. (now that is not Fantasy baseball to me) Also the best team does not always win. You can have a dominant team and win every week, than you get to the finals and lose cause your players all get benched, since there teams have nothing to play for. And a team that is worse wins cause his players all play and you are forced to go through the WW finding replacements
. (Exact thing happened to me in Basketball this year).
Maybe if there were no playoffs and the team that finished with the best record one the league, that would be fine. But I hate the idea of H2H playoffs. Especially in the last week of the season.
I just feel that you really dont have enough time to get involved in a H2H matchup. Too many freak things happen and it reflects more luck than fantasy baseball skills.
I love H2H for Football, but don't like it for baseball. I still do a H2H league cause in 1 league thats what my friends wanted, even though I tired to convince them to make it Roto.
