Re: G: Please rate my team

We all need to realize the effect of scoring those 9x categories. That changes the value of guys like Adam Dunn clones (low/mediocre 2B, 3B, H), SAGNOF closers (bloated K/BB, BB, L), workhorse SPs (Carl Pavano 2nd in MLB with 7 CG), etc. That said: 1. Jeter was a huge reach -- you picked him within ...

Re: Is Grady Sizemore worth a waiver shot?

I'd drop Cueto for GSizemore. I just don't think Cueto has that much upside. A sub-4.00 ERA always looks good, and Cueto's BABIP was around .300, so what you see is what you get. He doesn't really K that many guys, his WHIP isn't great, and he pitches in a hitters' park. Guys with Cueto's risk/rewar...

Someone please (further) convince me that this is STUPID

[12-team Yahoo public league, Head-to-Head, mixed league. You have all 8 hitting spots PLUS 2 utility spots. Standard R-HR-RBI-SB-BA. You don't get penalized if you don't start a guy at any given position -- i.e., it's not an illegal lineup that will force a forfeit.] Ok, maybe I'm stubborn and/or d...

Re: Got lucky with Pitching after loading up on Hitting

am curious how your strategy holds up. please update with current standing, say, June 1...?
Yup, will do.

Of course, if my players played like they did in 2010, then this looks like a great strategy..... guess we'll see how they'll fare soon enough!

Re: Got lucky with Pitching after loading up on Hitting

Honestly, your offense isn't that great considering how poor your pitching is. You should trade some of your excess closers for better SPs. Ahh gotcha, thanks for giving my roster a look, Grey. I did nerd it up and I tried to project stats for my team. I used your own projections. I couldn't find E...

Got lucky with Pitching after loading up on Hitting

1. Yahoo H2H league, 12-team mixed, 5x5. Typical C/1B/2B/3B/SS/3-OF/2-UTIL lineup, SP/SP/RP/RP/4-P. 2. Auction, 23 roster spots, $260 budget, only 1 autopick bot (evenings always better). 3. Tried a more extreme LIMA-ish approach: $230 on hitting, $30 on pitching. Yup, $30 on pitching. 4. Offense sh...
