Adding/Dropping pitchers everyday. Good/Bad?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Knighthammer » Tue May 17, 2005 9:56 am

Ok, 1 week later I am still in 5th place, 326 pts. out of 1st. I don't have any way to check out what kind of innings pitched pace these guys are on.

I think I'll try their strategy for a while & see if I catch up.

With that said, is Percival worth holding on to? I've heard that he's going to be out much longer than 15 days.

I know that there is a possibility of hitting the max innings allowed, but I am afraid that by the time it is reached these guys will be so far ahead that we won't be able to catch them.

I can pick up Kip Wells, Tom Glavine, Eric Milton,David Wells or Jamie Wells for a spot start and drop someone. I'm still thinking about Percival. Any suggestions?

hmmmmmmm.......... if your 6 starters pitch the #1 innings pitched for 2004 each your still well short of the cap.
255 * 6.

before you go crazy drop adding bust out your calculator and see how many innings these guys are throwing a week. 22 week season / 1975 innings = ~90 innings per week. Thats a lot of starts every week, but if they are already outpacing the average you can probably concentrate on playing more key matchups rather then grabbing whatever is out there for the night.

Pace out your innings over the rest of the season and work towards the goal...... don't just add guys every day to score innings pitched.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me
