Totally agree with that, especially the last part.
I like to wait until pitchers can get their arms in better shape, last longer into games (to be more assured of a win), and for teams to get their bullpens straightened out (to be more assured of wins when your SP leaves with a lead). As long as you get a good base of SP's, you can fill in with the occasional spot start, and guys who will have break through years.....like happens every year.
Plus it's kinda fun letting people think they are way ahead of you, and then stomping them in the 2nd half of the season.
