Prefer head to head, makes me feel like I am facing real teams.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Why would you be surprised....H2H is MUCH more like real baseball....there are no points in baseball.

I like both, but the intensity of an auction draft is great. Combine that with trading players with attached dollar values in a keeper league is almost euphoric.

i like both and in my mind i don't think there is a clear winner but Roto does reflect the quality of your team more truly..... Roto is for Billy Beane fans and H2H is for Dusty Baker fans B-)

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

As I said earlier I like H2H but roster churning is the same as cheating in my opinion. H2H is no fun unless there are limits on innings pitched.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I do both but I like Roto better. I like H2H in every sport except for baseball. I feal with H2H you just don't really have enough time to get involved in a matchup. Especially with Pitchers. You only get 1 outing a week or 2 if You are lucky.

Roster churning renders the point of playing h2h rather meaningless, at least in regards to the reasons I enjoy h2h. Also, in my public yahoo league last year, someone churned, and he lost. In my public hockey league that just wrapped up a couple weeks ago, there was a guy who churned and I beat him easily. Obviously that's a small sample size, but I've never seen a roster churner win. I don't think it's fundamentally sound.
