It can be good or bad. Definitely depends on whether it's roto or h2h. In h2h in can kill your team if you have a bunch of guys from one team and the team doesn't score runs for a week.

Last year in a roto league I rode VMart, Peralta, Sizemore, Belliard, and Wickman down the stretch and won the league in the last couple weeks, so it can be a good thing as well. ;-D

Yeah, h2h it can be VERY bad...not only do you have the rainouts and bad pitching matchups but you also have to deal with team-wide slumps (ie if one guy stops producing/gets injured it's going to hurt the rest of your guys in the r/rbi categories) not to mention scheduling quirks (you might have a 5 game week for that team in which case you'll be hard pressed to compete with a team fielding guys at most positions on all 7 days). The flipside of all these things obviously apply but you want consistant production in h2h - streakiness really doesn't help you all that much.

Why would you have any?


I was figuring a deep AL-only league. ;-)


Even if it was a deep Royals-only league I would be hard pressed to have more than one. :-D

Depends on how many counting and how many ratio categories there were, surely? ;-)
