Extreme Lone Wolf Ballpark Strategy

PostWed Dec 19, 2018 12:20 pm

So. I need strategy help...

ATG league about to start...

Before the auto draft we all drafted ballparks by email...

I’m in an extreme lefty power park...1956 Yankee Stadium...
10/9/19/5

One other gm in the league has a hitters park....1957 Briggs...
14/14/19/16

And...
EVERY other park in the league is either a pitchers park or a righty power park...

1959 Wrigley
4/5/4/17
1957 Comiskey
6/6/4/4
1951 Crosley
8/8/1/6
1957 Forbes
17/17/1/1
1957 Municipal
4/4/6/15
1957 Connie Mack
11/6/1/12
1957 Cleveland
1/8/8/16
1954 Forbes
5/16/1/1
1957 Wrigley
4/8/7/12
1957 County
3/3/1/1

I don’t have my division set yet.

I’ve never been in a situation like this ...How would YOU stack your Team in the auto draft?

Thanks in advance

Hi Chris! There are others that can give you a better answer, but I will share my opinion on this issue. First of all, I would try to not overthink it too much. I would be comfortable emphasizing the ballpark advantage while maybe reserving 2, or a maximum of 3, spots in the order that can be successful in other ballparks. If it turns out your other 3 division mates all have the righty-power parks, then go in that direction. Otherwise, have a few guys that are decent small-ball players. Also, I would work toward a pitching staff that is strong and more or less ballpark neutral. A strong pitching staff with a few good lefty power hitters will hopefully allow you to steal a few games on the road while also pursuing your goal to take advantage of your park and go 60-21 at home.

Truth be told, if it were really my team, I would just go all in on the ballpark and hope for the best. But in a recent league I saw The Last Druid take the unusual strategy of adding Hank AAron and Willie McCovey to a small-ball team to account for other parks in his division and he absolutely crushed it, winning 111 games. But that might only work with is virtuosic touch. I would be more blunt and just try to ram the home-field advantage down everyone's throats.
