Dumb roster question

Dumb roster question

Postby OV614 » Thu May 28, 2009 5:41 pm

Ok. I'm in a 8 team h2h league on yahoo sports. We have 7 pitchers on our roster. The 1st two are SP, then the next two are RP. The next 3 just say P. Someone told me that the stats for all 7 will count. Is this true? Why would there be a starting and relief pitching slot if the stats from all 7 pitchers always count? Why not just 7 slots that all say P? Sorry if that sounds stupid by i am a FB rookie and still a little in the dark. Thanks.

They could certainly have 7 spots that all are "P" if they wanted, which would mean you could put any pitcher in any spot. By making some of them SP and RP spots, it makes it harder on the teams. Can't put a starter in a reliever spot and vice versa. Though some starters have "RP" status (because they started out in the bullpen or were projected to), and thus would be more flexible because you can put those starters in any spot.

Basically what your league rules are generally saying is that you can start up to 5 SPs or 5 RPs per day max, and up to 7 total pitchers.
