Why Pitching Is The Hardest Thing To Rely On In Fantasy BaseballMost fantasy baseball owners plan their draft around picking pitchers that threw well last year.

The hardest part for the fantasy owner is accepting that the present season is different than past seasons, and it's sometimes better to just admit you drafted wrong instead of stubbornly sticking with bad pitchers all season—and losing the league.
With Seven Weeks Left, Make Sure Your Fantasy Team Is On Proper PaceEvery fantasy league has different rules, but most people play in standard Rotisserie leagues that feature limits on both games played by hitters and games started by pitchers—or some variation along those lines. You want to make sure your team isn't going to go over those limits too soon!
