I just asked the same question and was told to take no more than 5 SP's and then fill the rest with RP's. They say that SP's average 200 IP and RP's average around 80.

I'd say the idea is to always run into the maximum. As Lo said, five SPs and a few relievers should take you there.

I have seen people draft allot of Sp's and run out of innings early in the year then trade there pitchers away for categorys they are behind in.

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

A guy in one of my leagues did that last year, and then was stuck trading his pitching for whatever he could get. Everyone knew he was in trouble because of it and he had to take far less than market value to move those pitchers for some hitting help.

As to the IP limits, yes, around 5 starters is good and avoid the bad starts (like at Coors). You would ideally like to hit the max in the last week of the season, but injuries are tough to predict. Stay a little ahead of the average, and then go with just the best quality starts toward the end of the year. :-)

I like to go with 3-4 starters and relievers at the beginning of the season to see how things pan out in the first month. It always seems that lower tier pitchers aren't as predictable early in the year. Then I can start to pick and choose the best matchups during the season and not worry too much about the innings limit (I still try to get there though).
I will also add that my pitching staffs are never very good. I focus most of my draft on hitting and take a shotgun approach to drafting pitching in the late rounds. I fill my bench with sleeper/risky pitchers and wait for one or two to emerge from the pack.

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but in Yahoo the day you go over the limit all your pitchers stats count. So if you are at 1249 innings and start 3 pitchers all the stats count.
