So, to win the WHIP, you want your pitchers giving up the fewest walks and hits as possible and pitching the most number of innings?

You want the smallest number possible. Example:

Team A pitches 40 innings and gives up 40 hits and 10 walks. 40+10/40= a whip of 1.25.

Team B pitches 30 innings and gives up 35 hits and 10 walks. 35+10/40= a whip of 1.50.

Team A wins the whip catagory for that week.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Fewest walks and hits, yes. In the most innings? Not necessarily. As long as you meet the minimum, you want the lowest WHIP. For instance, say you meet your minimum on Friday and have a WHIP of .95, you might want to sit your pitchers for the rest of the week depending on your other numbers.

If you don't meet the minimum for a given week, you automatically lose all of the pitching cats for the week.
