As you all know, BR should be widely different next year and because of that, the meta should change completely.
This thread will start with me sharing the drafting strategy I'll be using when the game first comes out then y'all can share how you'll be drafting when the game first releases, the game isn't released yet so obviously there's no wrong answers here.
First, let's break down the new draft tiers in 20:
Then there's the new rules that will be implemented:
3 batter minimum
No more starting pitcher roulette/starting pitcher energy
So here's my strategy:
Starters - 3 silvers and 2 bronzes, I'd love 5 silvers but I don't think that's the way to go here, if you manage your games right you can use your bronzes in your easiest games and that'll add 2 impact silvers to the lineup
Relievers - 1 diamond righty, 1 gold lefty, then 1 silver righty and fill the final 4 spots with 2 lefties and 2 righties, this will cover depth in the pen really well(you can utilize the gold and diamond as openers as well)
Lineup - 1 diamond, 2 golds, and 5 silvers. Preferably the diamond will be the high diamond but this lineup is pretty standard, even to 19
Bench - 3 bronzes and the 2 commons, this is where you try for 1 runner then hopefully at least 1 card that's good vs. Lefties and one for against lefties(the 3 batter minimum will help you with matchups)
I think this works really well with my playstyle and I'm really excited to hear feedback/your strategy for BR heading into 20
