so the key is to draft alot of great players and alot of 200k players....to draft starters from the pre-20's....and to not have many ip's and ab's....got it
And to read as much in the forums about normalization, strategy, how the sim uses pitchers, pitching fatigue (in game versus appearances), catchers arms, performance history, what stats matter when drafting, advanced search criteria and many other aspects. It's a truly dynamic game (which makes it fun) and there are many different ways to win.
Also, it's good that you asked a question here. Keep asking as you come across things in your league this season. I'll share any knowledge I can to help you enjoy this game as much as I do.
First tip: Don't just give up on this season just because your team isn't going to compete. Study your opponents and see what is working for them. Look at their lineups, their fatigue, their pitch counts and their usage of AAA. Go roster by roster and get a feel for average team WHIP, BA, OPS, SB and such. Look at the top 5 teams in the league and compare their stats to the other teams to see if there is a pattern. All those things will help you to build a strategy for your next team. Good luck!
