Max innings

Postby mbeller83 » Tue Aug 29, 2006 1:01 pm

Hey guys. this is my 1st year in a competive fantasy league. I didn't realize that the legue Im in has maximum innings for pitchers.. My math has never been good so I havnt budgeted my usage well, started 2 pitchers in a day alot etc. Right now I only have 22 innings remaining!! Anyway my question is. Should I only use releivers for the rest of the season? I am in first place in wins by a wopping 19 wins. And Im in the top 2 in every pitching category except for ERA and saves.

Yeah Id go with your top closers right now. A closer like Nelson/McClung Id leave out. Go with the best 2-3 closers you got.

btw, if you are in need of Wins, look into getting a set-up man or a reliever that teams like to use in tight game situations in the 8th inning.

couple years ago, i had like 5 innings remaining and needed 3 wins to capture the 1st place. i picked up yhency brazoban noticing dodgers kept using him in tie ballgame in the 8th. i believe he got me 3 wins that final week and won me the championship. i'll never forget brazoban. !+)

With only 22 innings left, I would ride out my 2 best relievers the rest of the year.

Or you could wittle your innings down to as close to 1 remaining as you can and then look for a day that has a few of your SP starting and then stack your pitching roster for that day!!

The day you go over your limit, all the stats from any pitcher pitching that day will count. Not just that 1 inning. So it is possible to have 1270 innings pitched when your limit is 1250.

Example: If your limit is 1250. Say... this friday you have 1249 total innings pitched at the end of the night. And on Saturday you have 3 SP starting and 3 RP on your starting roster for the day - All 6 of your pitchers stats will count.

Good Luck.

Already talking Hail Mary, eh? I like it! I did this last year on the last day of the season. I'd been running 5 closers, and I had to whittle that down to 2 or 3 and then I had 4 or 5 SPs on the last day. I managed to stay ahead of the second place guy in Ks, plus I got a Save, and I won our league by 0.5 points. Good stuff. ;-D
