P,P,P,P???

Postby ZachShalack420 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 5:54 am

Im in a standard !Yahoo $20 roto league. I'm sort of a noob to fan baseball(usually just a football guy).

With the 4 Pitching positions, how do you like to play the ratio of SP to RP??





Thanks for ALL the help guys, finally drafted a half way decent team!

Load them up with closer and elite setup guys to help your ratios. Swap your SP in when you have to. Unlike football, baseball takes a daily effort to adjust your lineup. Good luck & have fun!

ps. F the Yankees }:-)

A few good closers or setup guys that have high K's and low ERA are good to own and can come cheap. If at some point you get too far behind in the ERA and WHIP categories then start streaming pitchers off the WW in hopes to increase K's and W's.

So, I shouldn't start ANY starting pitchers in the 4 P: positions??

Agree 1000000%, even with that being theoretically impossible...

In a league that allows daily moves, no. You obviously want to put in your starting pitchers when they are pitching, but (ideally) you shouldn't put them in a non-bench spot when they aren't starting. They won't accumulate stats on the days they don't pitch. Relief Pitchers will accumulate stats on a semi-daily basis, so it is better to play them when your SP aren't throwing that day.
