I would sooner try to trade for a top end starter to solidify the rotation and try to win some of those pitching categories than to tank 2 cats from the very beginning. With the strategy you're suggesting, it is still very far from a guarantee that you'll win ERA and/or WHIP. You will have a low number of IP for the week, so with one bad outing from a reliever, you could be in big trouble.
Exactly. I've thought about this strategy before and it just doesn't work. If one of your closers yields a few bases or gives up a few runs, now you've ruined your chance in 4 catagories as opposed to potentially competing in all 5.
Trade one of your bats and one of your lower tier pitchers for a top tier pitcher.
