Pitching Roster Positions

Postby jebatzel » Sat Feb 28, 2004 3:24 pm

10 team league (25 man rosters)

more of a hitting guy

how does this look for positions?

Starters (SP): 4
Relievers (RP): 3
All Pitchers (P): 1

Our league is counting holds for a stat this year too, btw.

If you count holds as a stat, then I'd have 3 SP, 4 RP, and 1 P as the starting pitching lineup.

I agree basically with swarmee. I would have two closers for saves, two setup men for holds, and at least 4 starters. But on a 25-man roster, couldn't you increase your pitching staff by a couple and put the pitchers where you need them?

This is my first year in fantasy baseball, and I have a thought about pitchers for daily updated leagues. I would think its better to have more RP than SP because you can start your RPs when the SPs have the day off, which is most of the time. Is this perception correct?

Depends what your scoring structure is in the leagues you play in. Some points leagues where saves get you 10 points make closers ultra-valuable. Other leagues which value W and Ks make starters more valuable. You have to weigh in your scoring structure before saying what amount of pitchers is better to have.

My pitching categories, in a head-to-head league, are as such...

W, CG, SHO, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB

now what do you think?

I am going to be doing default scoring for each one.

(IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, HR, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB )

having one P position available will let you have 4 closers though.

I actually follow the reverse pattern. I like to have as many starters as possible, because you can rotate them in and out to pick good matchups, or even just accumulate ungodly quantities if your league doesn't limit IP or appearances.

RPs pitch more often, but not every day and not for nearly as many innings.

I haven't limited IP or appearances, but I did limit the amount of tansactions to 40.

I was in a league last year where some teams would pick up like 5 players a week just for spot starts.

Teams would be over 100 innings every week.

We're a 16-team league and we use 5 SP (like the normal 5-man rotation in MLB) 2 MR, and 2 CR. We use holds as a stat too.

Pitching depth isn't a problem in our league....guys like Loaiza, Meche, Redman, Pavano, Penny, Escobar, Ponson were plucked off the wire at different times last year
