And what ratio(batter to pitcher) should I do in the earlier rounds? -- I usually go with offense for the first 4-5 rounds, but it's really a matter of personally preference. I like to go after the starters in the 2nd/3rd tiers. I would be perfectly content with guys like Gallardo & Bumgarner as my 1-2 with guys like Zimmermann/Beachy/Fister/Morrow/Holland rounding things out. Most of those guys you could probably get once your offensive spots are mostly filled.
Also, what is with the "Maximum games" this year?? I've play free fantasy BB and have never seen this before. If you can only play a position 162-161 times this year, should I not play my bench players on my starter's days off?? -- Yahoo has always used the Max Games thing. Keep track of games where your starter's team plays, but your player gets the day off. Then you can play one of your bench guys on a 'day off'. I also like to have some players that can play at multiple positions. This helps a lot too when it comes to maximizing your games played. Don't take one of them at the expense of a more valuable player, but if the opportunity presents itself ... fine. Also, this is a fairly shallow league. You can wait to draft your starting catcher. You don't need to roster a backup there.

I do think you could find a better SP than Kuroda. I don't think he is going to have a very good year in New York and in the American League. Anything better on the WW?
