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.

Sticking too long with players headed for bad seasons only can hurt your team.
