I've seen all sorts of strategies for drafting pitchers, including load up early, wait til late, use tiers based on expectations, etc. I'm wondering if a simpler strategy would work. Basically, I am thinking of using tiers but based solely on rank positions (10 teams so each tier has 10 guys). The idea is to always draft a slightly better than average guy in each tier. In other words, draft the 3rd or 4th best SP from "tier 1", then the 3rd or 4th from "tier 2" (which would be 13th or 14th overall), then the 23rd or 24th (3rd or 4th best from "tier 3"), etc. Same with RPs. Does that seem like it would work? Too rigid? Other problems? Thanks

It wouldn't be any harder and you'd have actual tiers to choose from instead of some arbitrary number that groups players together. Tiers aren't really a difficult thing to put together at all and most rankings these days already put the players in tiers for you if you are using someone elses rankings or just don't want to do it yourself.

With only 10 teams pitching is incredibly deep so I would load up on hitting early and often and finally break down and take pitchers probably around the 7th round. Pitching is about depth, it isn't really about elite guys.
