If I knew what I was doing, I'd have recounted when the league went to 24 and realized we were short pitchers. My sitemail said teams *** MAY *** have 2 pitchers and 5 hitters, because some will have to. It did not say teams *** MUST *** have 2 pitchers and 5 hitters.
I don't think draft order made much of a difference. With some huge-IP starters such as Keefe, Clarkson, Welch having value, I think there was more of a choice to make than their is in most drafts.
