So, I've played roto before, but not year in, year out. I liked it the first time I played it, and now I'm in a family friend's AL only roto league. I've been searching for specifics and what not, but there's a few things I'd like to ask. I don't know if there's going to be any definitive answers, and they will all probably fluctuate:

1) In a one-league, standard cat league with 25 or so positions, what is a realistic average, WHIP, ERA (overall) you want to compete in this cats?

2) Can relief pitchers, like a Neshek, Okajima, etc..., help your team's WHIP/ERA more than a fourth or fifth starter because they don't pitch as much? Obviously, you sacrifice three cat's. Is this common?

Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

1) There was a very comprehensive thread on this issue: viewtopic.php?t=321346
- mbuser (from Yahoo) compiled comprehensive results from all Yahoo league winners. Although it's not perfect, it's a good starting point for sure.

2) Middle relievers can be helpful, but they are also very volatile on a year to year basis. Some people use a middle reliever strategy but roster space becomes an issue. I've always found that I want to drop the MRs for someone with more upside especially early on in the season when a lot of players begin to emerge.
