Superb pitching carried this team to victory, finishing 1st place in Wins, Saves, Ks, and WHIP while getting 2nd place in ERA. With 1583 Ks in 1538 IP my team finished 108 Ks ahead of 2nd place. Racking up an absurd 118 wins (with a 200 start CAP) put me 28 ahead of 2nd place, I also won saves by 12 and WHIP by .016. I lost the ERA lead late and just missed that category by .013. Using a budget on Low BA hitting allows for more to be spent on pitching and it paid off big time.
Hitting was as expected, leading the league in HRs by 24 and SBs by 63. I finished dead last in BA with .2556, which does make it hard to compete in Runs but I did well enough finishing 3rd. I also finished 2nd in RBI, missing 1st place by 12.
Overall my team racked up 87 league points out of a possible 100 and won the league by 6! Mission Accomplished! STRONG ARM TACTICS
This team was a well balanced force, finishing the season with a 142-54-14 (.710) record, winning or tying every single week except one, and finished 7.5 games ahead of second place. I'd say the goal was to win 7/10 cats a week and that was accomplished. I also finished strong going 54-11-5 (.807) in the last 7 weeks of the regular season, however I ran into a buzz saw in R1, and even with a decent showing I was crushed 1-8-1. I won the final week and took home 3rd place overall.
Personally I enjoy this strategy in roto more, partially I think because it's a bit more difficult to pull off to win a league, and partially because H2H is a luck of the draw thing I don't care much for. In my round 1 loss my team K'd 117, won 9 games, had a 1.953 ERA and a 1.008 WHIP but the only category I won was Saves. Oh well! I'm happy with a 1st place finish in the regular season, and I think the decision to go pitching heavy for H2H was definitely the way to go. Have a happy off season, gents!
