I have a H2H Points league auction draft on Sunday. Daily lineups. 12 teams with the following roster spots:
Hitters- C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, U
Pitchers- SP, SP, SP, SP, RP
I've been trying to figure out the best strategy to spend my money. I read a post that said spend a lot on 4-5 stud hitters, get one ace and then load up on cheap pitching, especially in the bench spots. Is this really the optimal strategy or does it make more sense to allocate 50% for hitting, 50% on pitching? When I sketch out teams based on different budgets (overestimating what I think a player will go for) it seems like I'm better off investing in a couple of top SP's (i.e.-Doc, Haren), having solid SP on my bench and having solid bats but not going after the Miggy's of the world. Any advice from people who have been successful in this format? Thanks much and I WHIR in other league/keeper questions.
$260 budget, scoring format is:
Runs (R) 1 Singles (1B) 1 Doubles (2B) 2 Triples (3B) 3 Home Runs (HR) 4
Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 2 Caught Stealing (CS) -1 Walks (BB) 1 Hit By Pitch (HBP) 1 Strikeouts (K) -0.5
Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Wins (W) 7 Losses (L) -5 Saves (SV) 7 Hits (H) -1 Earned Runs (ER) -1 Walks (BB) -1 Hit Batters (HBP) -1 Strikeouts (K) 0.5 Quality Starts (QS) 3
