Then your pitchers' #s will be totalled for the week and compared to your opponent's scores. For each category you 'win', you get a point. You will need to get the minimum innings covered to get any pitching points but that's a breeze.

Re how you set them up, you can just put your best guys into the slots BUT, few pitchers go every day. That's why you have to keep track of who's available on the particular days. And also, who's PLAYING who.

Guys who are 'marginal' or middle of the road, might be good to bench against say, the Red Sox or Yankees who tend to have a high probability of winning AND roughing up ERAs, etc. This can be a gamble, of course, as you get things like Brett Myers complete game against the Red Sox last year and other anomalys that can be hard to predict.

Or, for relievers, they don't usually 'go' on back to back days so if you have like 5 relievers, you can get a bit more 'production' by keeping track of who's pitched on any day. Split stats, like the ones at Yahoo, can give you an IDEA of who's good versus who where and that sort of thing (eg...I warmed to Maddux when I learned he'd given up one run in two innings vs. the 'Stros and Cards last year!!)

Or, you can just put the best guys in and ride out the week.
