WHIR *** Yahoo Commissioner questions *** WHIR

Postby Whisp » Tue Sep 11, 2007 9:14 pm

@Yahoo!FBB this year the commissioner set the IP limit way too high and we've all had to pick up pitchers constantly in order to compete. How do other commissioners deal with this problem?

-Calculate an IP limit that ends up requiring no pickups to reach?

That seems really tough to predict. Plus you may end up going over the limit without wanting to...and if you bench pitchers to meet the limit, or try to reach some kind of balance, it still requires work. We're trying to limit the amount of hassle and daily handling that annoyed everyone this year. Does anyone have a particular formula for calculating the IP limit?

-Set a transaction limit? That seems annoying if you run out of transactions for your batters.

This brings up another problem:
Everyone uses all their bench spots for pitchers in order to handle the IP limit. Is there any configuration of rules that promotes owning bench batters?

Any help is appreciated, and I'll help in return on any boards to the best of my ability.

thx for responding,
yes its for the roto team in my signature, i swap out several positions because the originals weren't worth holding (Mauer, Hafner, etc.)

We have an IP limit of 1400 which was designed for ideally 4-5 SP and 3-4 RP. I've been using 4 SP, 1-2 SP pickups everyday, and 5-6 RP everyday. i will reach the IP limit but some of the other teams will be around half that.
