It is not H2H (is that what people call a roto league?), that complile total points throughout the season
I've played in a league like this before. It's typically called a "points" league. Your lineup looks pretty solid, but you have to improve your OF.
One thing I did in my league like this was go after pitchers with a high k/inning ratio. I'm almost sure you have an inning limit...so the thing you need to ask yourself is how can I get more points than the other guys in my league per inning. Almost all players in your league will reach their inning limit, and if they don't, their bad. If you want to win, reach your inning limit, and maximize every inning possible. In my opinion, the best way to do this is through closers. Most closers have really high k/inning ratios, they'll get you saves...and when they blow their saves, they can get you wins. Middle relievers will help you with vulture wins also. Think about it...if you can get pitchers that pitch only 80 innings on the year but get you like 7 wins...that's huge. And pitchers that will help you will be out there too. While other people in your league will care about whip, era, and all that stuff, you shouldn't. They don't help you in points. I would go after a few starters with high k/inning and potential for wins and load up on high k/inning relievers. Pay attention to your inning limit and make sure you stay on pace to reach it. My guess is, if you follow that formula, you'll get more points per inning than anyone else...and at least you'll have your pitching side taken care of.
Let me know if that didn't make sense, and I'll try to explain it better.
