Also not as good: this creates value where it doesn't really exist in some relief pitcher who is also qualified as a starter for whatever reason. It only encourages threads like this which is looking for SPs who qualify as RPs; opposite result, but same idea.
In my primary league, I abolished SP/RP distinctions to avoid this tilting of value (although there are nominal IP minimums; 900/yr for 10 pitching spots). But the categories are set up such that no single pitcher, "strategy" dominates other than simply acquiring quality pitching. Nobody streams pitchers and nobody avoid SPs.
