Inning Caps trying to keep me down!!!

Postby tds1273 » Tue May 06, 2003 8:01 pm

yahoo 5x5

my pitching staff:


(a trade of Loaiza and Suppan to get Morris and Garcia is responsible for that 7 headed 4 tailed Monster }:-) )

Im first in all pitching categories except era im second

Pitching Categories Top 2 Teams(*me):
W:*25 second has 17
S:*23 second has 22
K:*236 second has 224
ERA:3.24 i have *3.27
WHIP:*1.18 two tied with 1.24

I just realized that there is a inning limit on the year of 1250 im on pace to go 54.1 innings over.

I am trying to trade some of my SP for more O but my stategy in question is even this: Even though all my starters (except maybe Piniero and Chacon im riding out and using for trade bait) are true studs and should start every day, despite this should I play matchups and maybe even wait till a guy like Halladay start really getting into a groove and have him sit for a while?

What do you think of this idea? Would you recomend just playing it regular for now or do it another way? What do you think of Inning Caps in the first place?

also of note Myers, Baez, Politte, and Borowski are all FA and will probably pick some of them up if trades clear space.

I wouldn't worry. 54.1 innings aren't a lot; if any of your studs miss time, you'll be glad you spent a few extra frames early on.

I do like innings caps, although 1250 may be a bit low. Without caps, it often turns into a contest of who can start the most waiver wire acquisitions per day...

an inning limit is good because like arlo said, and it avoids the use of a 12 headed (little monster) with 7 tails and wrapping up wins, saves and k's, even though there whip and era suffer. having 12's in 3 cat would make up for middle of the road in 2 cat. And you could do this with out a true stud and just draft O and win the league without any good pitchers. The inning limit keeps teams like this in check.
