How Many SP Should I have in h2h league?

Postby jzfran » Wed Jun 15, 2005 10:06 pm

I am ccarrying 5 SP, but there are many FA i need. I want to drop someone, and I was thinking Pavano, but then I would only have 4 SP. Is this too few? My guys would be: D-Train, Burnett, Capuano, Peavy. I'm trying to package Burnett and M Young for a better SP. Would the rotation be good enoug with only 4?

depends on the IP minimum -- your 4 starters should be enough, and pavano is certainly the least good of those players. also, do you have closers or MR?

If ther eis no max innings pitched limit I try to get a good offensive player at every posistion and dont use a bench for any offense. I use all remaining spots for pitchers.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

If it's a daily transaction league with no max IP, your ENTIRE bench should be SP and RP. At most, have one hitter on the bench you platoon in. Benched hitters don't help your stats much. ;-7
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

12 team H-H weekly points leagues where you have to start 5SP each week?

Those are the kind of H-H leagues I'm most experienced in.

In leagues with those rule paramaters I like to have 7 or 8 sP on my roster and I'm not afraid to utilize the FA pool for decent options. Outside of your top 2-3 unless you have an exceptionally good draft with SP, all your pitchers are not must starts on a weekly basis. My most successful seasons have been best served by drafting 2-3 must start aces and playing pitcher match ups each week to round out the back end of the rotation.

That's what I'd do also.

Don't drop Pavano yet.
