W/ the Yahoo H2H format, you get a 'run' or point for each category you win. So if you have W, K, S, ERA and WHP, you can get up to 5 runs/ week. All of your pitchers stats are totalled or averaged, depending on whether it's a computed or accumulated stat. If you have a pitcher in YOUR lineup on the day he plays for real, you 'get' his stats incl in your weekly pitching total. If you want to skip a pitcher, you just bench him. You do have to get whatever the minimum IP for your staff or I believe you get no points or something horrible. Nobody I play with has ever done that though!!

You don't HAVE to have any starting pitchers every day. If you have all #1 guys, you will have a big gap where you don't have any starters going at all after 'day one'. Usually different teams will be off a bit Or, if you set your guys in the BEFORE a given week and Carlos Zambrano gets a cold, Clement, Wood, Maddux and Prior will all go early, maybe a rookie comes up or maybe Dusty B fiddles w/ the order. I had Prior last year and he rarely seemed to go when I'd hoped he would and waited for the right day a number of times. I think there's an advantage to push your team to have the most "good" IP and trying to micromanage things to 'dodge' teams that tend to rack up a lot of runs.

I am kind of an ERA psycho though and the guys in my league seem to focus more on W and K. Regardless of where you're at, if you make sure you keep an eye on stuff during the 'long week' (incl the Japan games, I've read that Moose is going twice for the Yanks!!)

It can be tricky as MLB managers give guys extra days off all the freaking time. I don't want their arms blown out either but most good starters will be going maybe 3 times every two weeks if you are REALLY lucky. There was a bit in the Astros Rotation thread that they've got 6 guys AND Bonderman who can do spot starts. That's a long time when you're waiting for Oswalt, as most teams get a couple of days off a week anyway.
