Advice on Pitching Limits

Postby jefferey13 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 10:19 pm

h2h 10 team league, 7 P and 2 RP. Acquisition limit is 7 for 7 day matchups, and no season limits. I don't want to limit acquisitions beyond that, however I do not want the strategy for winning pitching cats to be streaming pitchers. Currently I have the min IP at 25, which I feel is appropriate, but I'm not sure where to set the max. Currently it is 70 IP. Should I move it down a bit to about 60-65 for the following weeks? Is 70 to low? thanks

Don't do a max innings pitched. Make it a max pitcher starts. A good number is 10 starts per weekly matchup. ESPN has this limit if you are playing there.

My league uses the 10 start limit on ESPN and we love it.

You know I was not keen on the start limit idea for some reason, but it seems I should switch. I hope I don't upset anyone with that. I can't see why it would?

What do people do in Yahoo H2H leagues to limit streaming? There's no max innings OR max starts limit on a weekly basis. It's kind of annoying and it makes me wish we used ESPN.
