Top 30 SP 21-30

Let’s talk about pitching in general. Everyone knows it doesn't take a mastermind to draft any of the top SP to anchor a fantasy baseball pitching staff. In fact, all managers in your league most likely will have at least one or two aces heading up their rotation. Finding rock-solid pitchers to fill in the hub to back of your rotation, however, is the tricky part. The thing to remember is good pitching is a hot commodity in real-life and fantasy baseball. Depending on the league type you play, rotisserie or head-to-head fantasy baseball, the pitchers you select in the middle to late rounds can make the difference between winning and losing your league. Poor starting pitching from the bottom-half of your staff can drag down your stats. Here is the bulk of my one pitching staff I had last season, I acquired these players through the draft, keepers, and trades. I secured King Felix in trade, Cole Hamels keeper, Yovani Gallardo trade, Dan Haren keeper, and Tommy Hansen drafted.  Needless to say I won Ks, ERA, and Whip. The elusive W was hard to garner with this squad, I finished 9th out of 12. I actually think RP Billy Wagner led my team in wins at the all-star break. I have experience that a large group of managers overlook pitching in general, so be dynamic this year and put a good deal of effort in preparing to draft your Starting Pitchers.
