True Power


The Power League is one of our most popular alternative formats and leads to some very interesting strategies and H2H competition. We had 6 returning owners from the free version of the league last year. They have all improved on their technique and appear to be doing even better the second time around. Some of the newcomers have picked up the game quickly and are already challenging for the title. The power points in this league come from home runs and quality starts. The trick is to manage your rotation so you average one pitching start per day, despite the roster limit of 5 SPs. Mick Ortwein is leading the NL and Greg Stephens sits on the top of the AL. Greg’s Angels lead the league with 2287 points.

Carlos Gonzalez has been the hottest bat recently. Unfortunately for Gage and his Orioles that only places him 3rd in the American League race. It would be a spot in the playoffs, however, if they started today. Gio Gonzalez has been the top overall arm so far. He plays for the Oakland Athletics and Casey Rieke, who is in 5th place in the American League. Here are the top 4 teams in each division through Memorial Day games.

  1. I’m really enjoying this league even though I am mired in last place. I thought I had a great strategy all mapped out before the draft but I see how I’m going to need to adjust that in the future. That and a few untimely injuries and a couple of slow starts didn’t help. But, hey, there’s still 3/4 of the season to go and anything is possible. Thanks, Mick, for a great league.

I thought I had a good strategy all figured out prior to the draft but I see how I’m going to have to adjust that for next year. That plus a couple of untimely injuries and slow starts haven’t helped any. But, hey, there is still 3/4 of the season left to go and anything is possible. Thanks for a great league, Mick.

  3. Thanks man! We’re happy to have you. You’re right, it’s still a long season and in H2H anything can happen.
