Trying a unique strat in a 5x6 H2H league - chances?

Postby rikkidee » Sun Mar 28, 2010 12:27 pm

This probably won't get much love on razzball since I ended up drafting pitcher heavy, but I thought I'd try something different.

Hitting cats are standard: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG
Pitching cats are: W, K, ERA, WHIP, SV, QS

The addition of QS and the fact that this is a H2H league made me want to try a crazy cat punting strategy that ended up in me winning 8 of the 11 cats per week, punting SB, AVG, and SV. I tried targeting guys that have great power/rbi/runs and nothing else, and since these guys tend to last later in the draft, I figured I could load up on pitching early.

1. (7) Tim Lincecum
2. (18) Roy Halladay (f-her gone already)
3. (31) Johan Santana
4. (42) Ryan Zimmerman
5. (55) Jason Bay
6. (66) Adam Wainwright
7. (79) Carlos Peña
8. (90) Ricky Nolasco
9. (103) Raúl Ibañez
10. (114) Ian Stewart
11. (127) Carlos Quentin
12. (138) Gordon Beckham
13. (151) Stephen Drew
14. (162) Jay Bruce
15. (175) Alfonso Soriano
16. (186) Ryan Doumit
17. (199) Francisco Liriano
18. (210) Phil Hughes
19. (223) Chris Davis
20. (234) Clint Barmes
21. (247) Nick Swisher

Any chance I can pull out a bunch of 6-5, 7-4 type victories every week throughout the season until the playoffs? or is this strat doomed?

I don't think it's doomed, but here's the thing. When you have someone like Lincecum, you don't need another big starter. Someone like Halladay doesn't mean as much. It's like you're turning your Ks to 11 or 13 or however many teams are in this league plus one. It's like if you have Bourn, Andrus, Reyes and Nyjer. Each guy is much less valuable when you stack them on. So your team might be okay, but you should trade some SPs.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
