No. Not the stupidest thing.
In a weekly H2H league, there's a HUGE difference between a 3.50/1.50 pitcher who has a handful of bad outings (and gets bumped up to 5.00/2.00), and a pitcher who's a consistent 4.50/2.00. HUGE.
This is like the difference between a good match-game golfer and a good stroke-game player. If you're a match-game player (i.e. H2H) and you can limit your terrible performances to one or two holes (or games in this case), the rest of your round (or season) can still be very successful. A stroke-game player (i.e. roto) doesn't have that luxury.
I'd be much more willing to grab Borowski in a H2H league than in a roto, because you can't predict when those blowups will be. But, other than the two or three weeks where he kills your ERA/WHIP (where you may have already been losing), he's going to perform just as well as any other closer in the league (and be drafted 7-8 rounds later).
Not even close to the stupidest thing. Leagues based on long-term results are much different than those based on short-term results.
