One of my fantasy baseball leagues in embroiled in debate right now to switch from a head to head format to roto. In my opinion head to head is way more fun for 2 reasons – every Saturday and Sunday throughout the baseball season is exciting as the week wraps up and it’s much more personal with one opponent each week. The argument for a more traditional rotisserie format is that it’s more fair. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the NFBC which is roto format, but what really is fair? Wouldn’t it have been fair to give the Patriots the Super Bowl title because they had the better team all year???
Bottom line in the debate of fantasy baseball formats is this – I like chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Roto v H2H are both valid formats and fun for different reasons. I’m just a little tired of the elitist attitude by the roto proponents that it’s a superior format, it’s not – try and make that case to the New York Giants!
