Strategy when IP-W-SV-K-BB-ERA-WHIP are pitching categories?

Postby tecmobowl12 » Thu Apr 12, 2007 12:05 am

Roto which scores IP W SV K BB ERA WHIP
No innings or moves restrictions,
Pitching roster: 3SP, 3RP, 3P (1BN)

Should that affect my pitching roster makeup? I'm not going to add/drop for starts constantly

Thanks for your help. One person in our league has only one closer and the rest starters..trying to decide whether he's on to something or not, since he's in first place

if its roto no,head to head then hes got a good idea. if you have solid starters your not going to be giving up too many walks which would make a closer almost not needed and punt saves. whats your pitching look like

Sorry I edited after your first post to note that it's roto. My pitching is supposed to be balanced, though I had closer disaster and currently have the two MRs until I figure out what to do next. Here are my pitchers:

SP-Jake Peavy
SP-Brandon Webb
SP-John Lackey
RP-Mariano Rivera
RP-Al Reyes
RP-Scot Shields
P-Dan Haren
P-Javier Vazquez
P-Jonathan Broxton
DL-Octavio Dotel
DL-Taylor Tankersley

repost something along the lines of what should i do with my pitching in the trade forum to get some more answers. i really like your pitching,i was going to say trade reyes and maybe haren/vaz for a solid starter. in roto you dont want to punt a category, i think rivera,dotel when comes back,tank eventually,and with shields getting you saves here and there you should be alright. i think with one trade your pitching will be very good considering the cats

Thanks again for your help. What I'm really trying to learn is in what ways my scoring system differs from standard 5x5 systems... The only thing I can tell is that walks issued are severely punished. But I'm not sure how to assess the effect of the IP category

SP with good control have nice value. Pitchers like Bronson Arroyo, Aaron harang, gets a big value boost bc of IP, while pitchers you probably will never use like Carlos Silva is actually serviceable because of his IP and low BB/9 ratio.

Agree with this. The addition of IP favors SP. The addition of BB favors control RP. If you can fill your 3 "utility" pitcher slots with low BB SP (preferably 2.5 BB/9 or less), then go that route as they'll help in IP, K, W (and usually WHIP).

If none are available, go with high K/9 and low BB/9 (preferably 3.0 or less) MR. They won't help as much in K as a SP, but won't hurt as much in BB, should help more in ERA and WHIP and can take a few vulture wins (and are generally the guys who get saves chances when current closerrs get hurt/perform poorly).
