What does this mean?

Postby johnnie2130 » Fri Feb 20, 2004 8:40 pm

In a Yahoo, h2h league, what does the line below mean? I'm still learning this stuff!

Minimum innings pitched per team per week:

Each week you need to log that many innings with your pitchers....that rule is used to stop guys from playing only relief pitchers...Need to use a couple of good starters.

I'm setting up my league now. What's a good minimum number to select?

9 or 12. Just depends on what you want.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

20-30, that makes each owner use at least a few starts each week.

I'd have to say more than 9-12. a CGSO would give you 9 IP, a 0.00 ERA and likely a very low WHIP as well.

On average, you'd expect an owner to pitch his whole staff (5 SP's)in any given week, some pitchers might go twice. I wouldn't want to put the minimum at the 45 innings 5 games would entail, but I think I'd want him to pitch at least 4 games, or 36 innings based on a 9 inning game. Since he probably won't be using middle releivers too often, you could maybe say 8 innings pitcher per game, bringing you down to 32 IP. 30 seems like a reasonable minimum to ensure owners stay active and submit a competitve line-up every week.

I'm new here and still trying to make sure I understand this. If I set my Minimum innings pitched per team per week at 12, does that mean each SP on my team has to pitch 12 innings or does it mean all 5 starters must total 12? I'm just using 12 as an example.

Also, what is WHIP? 8-o

all th epitchers on the team, starters and relievers need to accumulate at least 12 (for example) innings through the whole week or none of the stats count. You can see here, 12 innings is not a lot, you could use one start (ex. Pedro vs TB) for 7 innings 0 runs and a .65 whip and then use relievers for the other 5 innings. You get your 12 and you win era, whip, etc. I agree the minimum should be more like 25-30. Just my 2 cents
