Mound Musings: My 2018 'Home' League Pitching Staff Revisited

This article is part of our Mound Musings series.

Readers often ask about my own pitching staffs in the various fantasy leagues in which I compete. So, now into the stretch run in my primary or "home" league, I thought I'd take this opportunity to discuss the pitching staff as it stands today – after quite a few changes necessitated by a nearly unbelievable flurry of injuries. This season, more than most, it's been all about roster management. I will add that I typically focus very heavily on a few arms, so many of these guys pitch on several of my teams.

I anticipated being somewhat competitive despite losing several key players from my league championship team last season. The team is currently in a lower money spot, but a league title is probably out of reach. Despite a lot on injuries (and some disappointing numbers), the pitching staff has held up reasonably well, while the hitting, with as many or more injuries, and some epic failures when playing, has been atrocious. Putting that in perspective, Nick Ahmed and Jurickson Profar – both drafted as reserves/depth – are my team leaders in RBIs. The pitching staff has seen a lot of turnover, mostly to fill in for injured regulars who couldn't be released. Several trades and several pickups have kept the team competitive, and hopefully, the staff can finish on a high note.
