In roto, yes, I have a good chance.
In H2H you can only win the regular season, than it is down to luck.
You brought up this
like the one kid said 3 league, 3 2nd place finishes...thats pretty consistent success
so I refrase your question:
did he win every championship by punting HRs and RBIs?
FWIW I won 2 out of 3 last season (1 H2H, 1 roto), and currently I'm over 90 % success rate at Yahoo baseball, (proof here, so I'm not just sayin something)
and I've never seen that strategy to win.
You can try that strategy in public leagues, but it only takes one owner who has the same strategy, or a knowledgable owner who likes to destroy casual public leaguers, and you are toast.
I have an eerily similar "baseball resume" (see below) and as I read through this thread I was thinking the ONLY PLACE this has any chance at all to succeed is a casual H2H public league. (success to me means winning ala syfo-das) I haven't played H2H or in a public league in many years, just 3 keeper roto leagues. But given the level of competition I remember from back in the day, numbers of owners who lose interest, and the huge impact chance plays in H2H, ANY "strategy" has a shot. In a competitive league you'll not only have very little fun as was pointed out, but you'll likely struggle in the standings too.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
