2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: 10-team NL-only H2H points mock shows where Mookie Betts fits in Dodger Blue

Having Mookie Betts in Dodger Blue gives the NL a Muderders' Row of hitters at the start of every draft. But this draft being a Head-to-Head points draft, starting pitchers were still the order of the day.

So it goes in 2020, a time when the intersection of juiced balls and the launch angle revolution has created a chasm in the starting pitcher ranks, the gap between the haves and have-nots seemingly growing wider by the year.

Chop the player pool in half, and contrast is even more stark. It's why you see Jacob deGrom break up the formidable foursome of Christian Yelich, Cody Bellinger, Betts and Ronald Acuna. It's why you see Mike Soroka and Zack Wheeler go ahead of Ozzie Albies and Pete Alonso. With only nine hitter spots to fill, the leftovers there will still keep your head above water, but a bad starting pitcher or three will leave you gasping for air.

That wasn't the only takeaway from our 10-team NL-only Head-to-Head points league draft, of course. A first base shortage revealed itself in the middle rounds, and there was the usual grappling over closers. There were prospect fliers like Dylan Carlson in Round 14 and Alec Bohm in Round 18. I got a little too relaxed at shortstop and wound up with Jon Berti as my starter. These things happen in league-specific formats.

It all paled in comparison to the breathless pursuit of high-end pitching, though, as these fine folks will tell you:
