Spend Where It Counts

The easiest way to score points in a hurry is by splurging on a top-end starting pitcher. Here’s how lineups performed in 2017 tournaments based on how much salary was spent on pitching.

Pitcher Salary of $10,000+Pitcher Salary below $10,000

Stacks on Deck

Stacking is when you use multiple players from the same team on one roster. If Giancarlo Stanton doubles with Gary Sanchez on third base, you get the points for Sanchez’s run scored and Stanton’s RBI. And the more players you have in your stack, the better.

Park Factors Matter

Unlike other sports, not all fields are the same in baseball. That means you need to factor in how “batter friendly” a park is — also known as the park factor — when filling out your lineups.
