Just found the forum, in my quest to learn about fantasy baseball.
This year I joined in a league thru Yahoo. Never done this before, but I am a fan of the sport, and figure I ought to be able to figure it out.
I'm curious about a little bit of strategy. Our league did an auto-pick draft, and I was fortunate enough to get several of the position players that I was hoping for. (Maybe because they were ranked too low, I dunno. But anyway. . . )
The pitching part of this is the area that I'm A little unsure about.
What type of mix would be ideal? I looked at my starting pitchers, and their spot in their respective team's rotation. I have 2 number 1's, 3 number 2's, a number 3, and a number 5 starter. I'm looking for ideas on how to maximize my roster. One tip I was given was to be sure and have the pitcher active on the day that they are pitching. OK, that much makes sense, but what about a day when maybe none are, or is that so unlikely that I shouldn't worry?
I'd love to hear any tips that you all might have. I am looking forward to playing this game, and simply don't want to look absolutely clueless once it starts.
I'm not looking for any player recomendations just yet, so please don't feel that you need to keep secrets from me, heh heh!!
Thanks for reading!
