My reason is this...
In H2H if one of your stud SPs has a crappy game then it could really put you in a hole if you are relying on winning pitching by loading your pitching. If a hitter has a bad game it becomes minimal over the entire week.
If they have a bad week it could hurt, but I think it's more likely for one of your SPs to have a bad game than one of your cornerstone hitters to have an entirely bad week.

This year, unless Santana falls to my late 1st round pick, I'm avoiding pitchers until somewhere around the sixth or seventh. Last year, one of our owners loaded up on Unit, Schmidt, Oswalt, Zambrano and Nathan in the first five rounds. In an odd bit of symentry, he finished fifth. That said, this is a bit of an extreme example and I wouldn't absolutley say that one should not draft aces in the first few rounds; just be aware that even the best ones can and do have off years and injuries, and that this strategy can backfire on you as often or more than it works........

If you are in a daily transaction H2H a stud SP is completely useless, its why I don't like those leagues. You simply stack up your bench with SP and zerg pitching.
If you are in a weekly transaction H2H a stud SP has a decent amount of value, on their 2 week starts you get a huge jump on your oppenent and their consistancy makes a pretty big difference.
In Roto with innings limit they are huge, its all about maximizing your stats per IP.
