Derek Carty of The Hardball Times was the host this past week of Fantasy Roundtable. Besides serving a lovely crumb cake and spicing up the coffee with a little Bailey’s, he posed the following question:
What do you think has a greater impact on one’s ability to win a fantasy baseball league: player evaluation or strategy?
Some interesting responses both in the post and in the comments.
While I’ve got this post open, here’s another link where I kibbitzed with another blogger – this one being on the awesome Disabled List Informer. Check out the comments where DLI was kind enough to answer some of my questions regarding what pitches create the most injury risk. Looks like my assumptions about breaking pitches in the risky pitcher post do have some medical credence (sliders are the worst…I’m still not sold that 12-to-6 curveballs aren’t arm killers). Anyone who likes pitchers who throw a lot of cutters (see Roy Halladay and Jon Lester) may not be happy about the physical therapist opinion on that pitch.
