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. But as we all learn, sometimes things don't go as planned. Pitchers can get hurt; their performance can drop off for a number of reasons, sometimes without rational explanation. 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.
