The main thing is that I want is for pitchers to have value soo I dont know what im gonna do.

I think even standard yahoo leagues keep track of your IP right??? so I'll just tell everyone in the league that the minimum IP is 1200 and that in order for their pitching stats to be valid by the end of the year that they're gonna need to show me their IP.

So if they dont have 1200 IP then their points from P are disqualified.

I think a 1200 inning min might be to high. I think their default max innings pitched is 1250 based on 7 pitchers.

Look at it this way:

162 games x 9 innings = 1458 innings played in a season, not accounting for rain shortened or extra inning games.

1450-1500 innings is perfect. I played in a 2000 IP, 180 games played maximum last year and it was a churn fest of scrub SP's and hitters to decide the winner (me). 2000 IP is too high, even with 9 pitching spots. 1450-1500 should be perfect.

Just explain to your league it is to prevent the excessive roster turnover that unlimited innings limits promotes. Without an inning limit, players can dominate W's, K's, SV's, etc. on sheer volume of players.

Going over 1500 innings is alot like setting the games played above 162. It gets difficult to reach above a certain limit. Active players that manage their rosters with an eye on a relatively balanced full season of play will still be forced to make semi frequent spot starts of FA pitchers to reach 1500 innings. Only a compulsive roster churner abusing a scoring system is going to be restricted by a limit around 1500 IP - IMO.

On the other end of the spectrum, managers should be encouraged to approach or meet these limits, and not create a team of just RP in an effort to win SV, Hold, ERA, and WHIP categories. Balance your SP/RP as you see fit, but at least come close to the max IP.

You set a limit to prevent churning. Churning is bad (for most) because it requires no knowledge and means that good players are not being held, which means there aren't enough teams or players on teams. Having played like this one year, I found it less than fun to say the least.

Punting can work, but rarely if the league is competitive. Don't confuse punting with not trying to win a category either (which I've heard referred to as punting as well). Most winners will not win all catgories, but will be competitive in all of them.

I've noticed some leagues designate specific pitching roster spots.....
