minimum innings pitched?

Postby sixer03fan » Mon Feb 26, 2007 3:50 pm

yo guys, i'm the league manager this year and I want to have a good limit for minimum innings pitched.

the league is a 10 team, yahoo, h2h.
the pitching categories are:
wins, k's, era, whip, saves, and CG

there are 3 SP positions, 2 RP positions, 3 P positions, 5 bench spots, and 2 DL spots.

i was wondering what my minimum innings pitched limit should be with these stats/positions. i would like to make it slightly higher than usual because i don't want anyone trying that "all closer" crap to win certain categories and punt others. however, i don't wanna make it too high incase someone can't get the limit or if one of their pitchers gets injured during the week.

any opinions? thanks in advance and good luck this season!

we are facing this same dilemma in a HTH keeper league. so i'm curious to see the replies.

i'm personally not a fan of HTH because of this reason (where pitchers are much more undervalued relative to hitters as compared to roto leagues).

but in an effort to increase the value of pitchers, we're thinking of increasing the IP to 30 a week. we did 20 last year, but it proved to be a bit low. we had 4 SPs, 4 RPs and had 5 bench spots to split between SPs and hitters.

We use 30 with the same setup. Also, there is a thread on this very topic about halfway down the page in this forum.
