in h2h if you are going to punt a category punt sb's. the top base stealers and five tool studs go really early in the draft but you can get decent closers in the middle and late rounds fairly easily, as well as pick up new closers along the way.

i prefer a well rounded team. i've never made the decision to punt stolen bases before a draft, but i have occasionally done it as the draft unfolded. when base stealers go off the board before you are ready to take them just take advantage or the bargain you will get in a different category.

Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.

I don't intentionally punt catagories, but it always seems that there's a run on SB much earlier in the draft than I'm willing to go along with. Same with closers, but I'm able to find bargains later in the draft or on the waivers later in the year for saves.

I never go into a draft planning to punt a catigory. If i choose to punt a catigory i do it once i know what my team will look like.

If you must punt a catigory, saves is ussally the easiest because closers are for the most part one catigory guys.

On the whole punting catigories will backfire on you.
