I'm in a league that counts saves and holds, and I have the bench space to carry 6 relievers (closers and MRs), which I currently have on my roster. Specifically, I have Rivera, FCordero, Foulke, JRincon, MGonzalez and Linebrink. Unfortunately, I only have 5 RP/P spots to work with.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to rotate these 6 guys in and out of the starting line-up to maximize the number of innings I can get out of them. I've already determined that all 6 of their teams play on 130 of the 180 game dates this season. What do I do on the days that all 6 pitch? I have a few ideas:
Sit the pitcher that's pitched in the most innings the previous week.
Sit the pitcher that is playing the weakest team (thinking that a save or hold situation is more unlikely).
Sit the pitcher that is playing the strongest team (thinking that a save or hold situation is more unlikely).
Pick the worst pitcher of the 6 of them and sit him every time. (In that case, which would you pick?)
Pick the worst MR of the 6 of them and sit him every time (thinking that holds are less competitive than saves in most situations).
A combination of any or all of these.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
