Proposed solution to the "start a million pitchers" problem

We just charge per transaction. $3 per add/drop and $5 assessed per trade per team involved. Makes the draft more important and more importantly, more money in the pot.

Adding categories like losses and HR will also prevent owners from picking up too many average pitchers.

But i use the 40 moves limit for the first time this year and i love it.

Yeah, changing from K to K/9 with a minimum weekly IP is the simplest and best way to solve the problem. ;-D Then you don't have to bother keeping track of each team's moves and the lot. In a 5x5 the only category you could take by adding a ton of pitchers (as most closers with a steady job don't drift about on waivers or in the free agent pool), would be wins.
