These settings do favor RP heavily.

yellowdog, I could use some help with PMP / IP here. Do you compare SPs to SPs and RPs to RPs or just Ps to Ps?

It seems that doing it by position is wrong and it should just be all pitchers...

Since his league requires 2 SP, 2 RP, and 3 P I think I would separate the two categories. For SP, I would only figure the projected points for the top 16. And I would assume you'd want RP for the remaining 5 spots, so figure PiMP for the top 40 RP. Once you figure the PiMP, you can compare SP to RP. I'll figure this tomorrow and post the results I come up with.

Yes. For column A =SUM(A1:A300)/300

Question for you sorgi, Do you have a max innings limit? Can you reach that max using only 2 SP? Do you have daily transactions OR weekly.

This is the problem. PiMP is by position, so RPs with a PiMP / IP of say 0.6 and SPs with a PiMP / IP of 0.6 have different total scores.

As an example, Santana (316 total) is the top SP and he has a PiMP / IP of 0.6. Jenks (406 total) is also 0.6 but he is the 13th rank RP. Since RPs way outscore SPs in this format, how is this possibly useful?

Since yellodog might be gone til tomorrah, can anyone add anything to this method. Is this just a bad example because all the Pitchers should be considered the same position?

The way I do it, PiMP is figured by position, but applied to overall. It's my way of accounting for position scarcity, I suppose. I'll work on my pitcher list now and post it in a few minutes.

With an innings limit of 1250, you will need to draft more than 2 starters to maximmize your point potential. I figured PiMP by factoring 4 SP and 5 RP per team. Here is a list of the top 72 draftable pitchers.
*sorry again for the formatting.
