Pitcher patience

Postby Kato » Mon Mar 31, 2014 11:41 pm

Let's say I was very unhappy with a young pitcher and dropped him after some rough starts and (surprise, surprise) at the end of the season he was one of the hottest SP in the game (Top 20 for 2014). (It wasn't the first)
I picked up a hot SP (who was hot for 2 starts and went down south afterwards) instead.

How can you tell the difference?

How can I avoid to drop the wrong guy OR if I'm patient to cling to the wrong pitcher far too long ?
How long do you "stack" a Pitcher, to see if he turns out good or bad? What's your rule?

Sure, I check the stats - was he unlucky, bad command, adjusting to a new ball park/ to the big leagues, hitter-friendly stadium.

thanks in advance

In our league we have the maximum of 6 SP (with 14 teams).

Depends on lots of factors
Grey Albright

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
