Could be (probably is) a dumb question...

Postby Galapogos780 » Mon Mar 21, 2005 2:32 pm

Just started a fantasy baseball team. 5X5 Rotisserie. I have 2 SP positions, 2 RP positions (ok so far...), and 3 P positions. I assume that it's just for the 3,4,5 starters. If this is true, then does that just mean that (since there is a 1250 pitch limit) I just leave my 5 starters always plugged in? Sorry if this is an obvious question.

you could, but you dont have to. "P" means that either a RP or a SP can be in that spot. What I plan on doing is having another closer and/or a couple middle relievers to put there. When I need the space for a starter, I'll just bench a MR with a starter.

I would carry reserves that include at least one other source of saves. Keep the save guys started always (unless no game) and then rotate in your SP when they start.

it can mean that, but doesn't have to. Those three pitcher spots allow you to customize your team's staff to the best pitchers on your team or the catagories you are chasing.

If for example you had four great starters and a really bad one, you might find it easier to plug in a good reliever who helps you in ERA and WHIP, while getting you some saves. You lose out on a few wins, but that's the tradeoff. In general, plug in your best pitchers. Towards the middle/end of the season, you may want to look at the standings and adjust accordingly. For instance, if the next three guys above you only have 5 or 10 more saves then you, but wins are very spread out, maybe you'd want to toss in more relievers to try and catch up on saves.

Not sure how many bench spots you've got, but you could use one or more of those 'P' spots for a third closer. Also, I like drafting a couple of the top setup guys who can help with K, ERA, WHIP without beating up the innings limit. They're great to plug in instead of a middling starter at Coors or facing the Yankees, that type of thing.
