Maximum Pitcher Starts

Postby Heraldo » Wed Mar 21, 2012 11:21 pm

My 10-team Yahoo! Weekly 5x5 Roto league has a 200 maximum starts (1000 IP minimum), 7 Pitching positions - 5 bench spots.

Is that a ceiling I should be concerned about? And does that impact the value of pitchers (starting/relief)?
I did some rough math 162 games / Starting once every 5 games = ~32.4 starts per pitcher. So if I follow Razzball's wise advice of rostering 6 starting pitchers, (assuming no injuries) I'll end up right around 192 starts total.

With all of that in mind, would it be beneficial to roster 6 middle relievers (filling up all of my bench spots) to take advantage of the "starts" requirement as opposed to "innings?" (Which Razzball traditionally advises) Or should I consider not rostering a full 6 starting pitchers?

Thanks for all the advice.

you are in a 7P weekly league? I would have 5 SP and 2 closers every week, with 2-3 more starters on your bench. Get every two start starter you can each week and add them 1-2 weeks before they hit the double start.

Yeah, I thought 7P weekly was weird too. I'll look at adding a couple extra starting pitchers. I was trying to determine how greatly these rules/setting differ from Razzball's traditional advice. So, I'll roster only 4 relief pitchers instead of filling up my bench with SAGNOF's. Thanks.
