The Heaters: A Pitching-Dominated Team—Let's See How We Do

So I decided that I am pretty bad at fantasy baseball. Making bad trades is my specialty, so I decided to try something new this year. Heavy, Heavy Pitching. What could go wrong? I figure all the categories count the same, why go for players that hit the long bomb and strike out?

It seems like one giant fish pool of pirahnnas going for A-rod, Pujols, and David Wright. I decided Im going  to try and sweep most of my pitching categories, and go for a fast team that picks up triples, stolen bases, drawn walks, and runs. Here how my draft turned out

C) Napoli

1B) Carlos Guillen

2B) Rickie Weeks - 19sb

SS) Cesar Izturis - 24sb

3B) Felipe Lopez 

OF) Johnny Damon -29sb

OF) Jacoby Ellsbury -50sb

OF) Michael Bourn -41sb

UTL) Carlos Gomez -33sb

UTL) Willie Taveras -68sb

SP) CC Sabathia ..................................17-10 251k

SP) Timmy "The Tool Man" Lincecum.......18-5 265k

SP) Cliff Lee .......................................22-3 170k

SP) Cole Hamels.................................14-10 196k

RP) Joe Nathan ..................................39SV

RP) Brad Lidge ...................................41 SV

RP) Mariano Rivera ..............................39SV

P) Scott Shields .................................31Hlds

P) Kyle McClellan .................................30Hlds

I hope it works out well, even though everyone has told me it wont. I know pitchers are more risky, but you gotta have a little creativity to get ahead. For $20 amongst high school buddies I think this gamble is worth it.

What do you think?
