As you spread (or increase) the IP's you're allowing for more flexibility and you're not quite as deeply impacted by poor decisions (i.e. "Shoot I shouldn't have started him"). That said, of course, it depends upon just how much we increase the IP limit.
Don't think I phrased this sentence quite like what I'm trying to get across. My point is that you're not as deeply impacted by poor decisions.
Keeping IP's low and not opening up a new roster pitching spot, to me, means slightly better pitchers remain on the wire. This, in turn, gives you more flexiblity in your strategy, less flexibility in being able to cover up your errors.
Hopefully that makes sense what I'm trying to get at.
