I need advice on a pitching strategy

Postby Bpmsu7 » Fri Mar 19, 2004 3:06 am

I have great offense but my SP's are not very good. I am in a rotisere league where no trades are allowed. Should I get rid of SP's and use only closers and other RP's to win saves ERA and WHIP. I think I will lose the K and W catagories in my current situation anyway, so why not punt them right?

It's pretty tough to win if you punt two categories. Not impossible, but you better be sure that you're going to win the other eight.

What's with the no-trade rule? That takes all the fun out of the game!

Stay the course like it is. By watching who will pitch twice each week, use the FA option and swap out your SP's.

I wouldn't give up on wins and Ks quite yet - wins are always volatile, and the results often look very different from pre-season projections. Also, there are always pitchers who emerge during the season (if you can make free agent pickups).

Punting two categories is very risky. Whether it can work depends on the other teams in your league - if all owners can be expected to be equally competitive, it can be done under certain circumstances; if some owners are sharks and others are minnows, it's not a good idea.
