Apparently CBS can limit the number of starters used during a given week. My new dynasty league is setup for 5 starters that will lock when each pitch in a game. It ends up being a daily lineup for hitters and a weekly lineup for SP's (although 2-start pitchers get a bonus). I can't tell you much more since we haven't used it yet.

We capped starts last which took care of the churning of SP's. However, at 3 pts an inning, and points given for holds, it became somewhat beneficial to stock relievers.

I think ive effectively counteracted this for the upcoming year, by lowering pts per innings to 2, while increasing the value of other more common countable stats.

The biggest complaint I got from managers last year was due to the variance of Starting Pitchers in a points league. In addition to the edge gained over your opponent by accumulating more innings, it was difficult to compensate for a poor pitching week, regardless of how well your hitting performed. Contrarily, a poor hitting week could be hidden by an above average pitching week. This put a premium on the top starting pitchers, and complicated things for owners who strictly picked up a magazine a week before draft day and went off standard rankings. I recorded the week by week totals for all of the teams, and the range on the pitching side was always higher then on the hitting side.
