I'd say 30 as well.

We're using 30 this year and used 16 last year. 16 was too easy to take advantage of and that's when we had k instead of k/9 as a category. I shudder to think of the damage you could cause with 16-20ip minimum and 3/5 categories as ratio categories. !+)

I'm not familiar with the k/9 category. Could someone explain that?

Currently I have 12 innings minimum.
Is that way too low?
If so, why?

Thanks.

Let's do an example. Let's say we've got your typical Yahoo league with SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, daily changes and your 12 ip minimum. We have wins, saves, era, whip and k/9 (instead of k).

Knowing that the minimum IP is 12 I draft BJ Ryan relatively early. I also snag Joe Nathan around the same time. Later on in the draft I grab Huston Street and toward the end take a flier on Jose Valverde. Finally I get Zumaya. Between those 5 guys there's a chance that some weeks won't even require me to use a starting pitcher at all. I'm going to win saves almost every week with those relievers. I should win era/whip almost every week. And that set of guys should absolutely crush teams in k/9 ending up way over 9 k/9. I might even steal the wins category if I get lucky some weeks. There's not really a reason to roster starting pitching in that setup and that's why you need a higher minimum ip unless you don't mind teams using that strategy.

weekly changes should make the min innings pitched lower, because you wont be able to sub in and out your bench pitchers to get more innings
