Im currently in a yahoo league that has no maximum amount of innings pitched or games played. Now I feel this is unfair in several aspects. First it produces an unfair advantage to those with a very strong bench, when their studs arent playing they can plug in a equally as good alternate. Secondly, it provides an unfair advantage to those that are more active in the league. I myself check every day, but there are some in the league that dont. So when the Astros dont play for example, Player #1 has Berkman and Kent in and receive 0 stats, while Player #2 switches in replacements and gets to receive their stats. And finally, we used this format last year, and at the end of the year, people were dropping their best pitchers like pedro and prior to pick up no names who were pitching the final few days of the season, so they could gain points in wins and k's. Is it just me or should the commissioner change the league format to provide 182 max games for batters, and a suitable amount of IP for pitchers, do even the playing field. Thanks for helping, sorry about the length.[/quote]

No, it sounds like a ROTO without any limits, which like he said provides an unfair advantage to the overly active. Limits should always be set, but as was said once the draft is over there is no justification for rule changing.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

You can change it. It's just a matter of how fair that really is. After all, some people may have drafted with the league rules in mind. I know I do, and I'd be annoyed if the rules were changed after the draft.
No, we all voted and everyone is ok with it. It would just make it more fair for those who dont check every day. Anyone have a clue as to a good amount of innings pitched. 4 SP, 3 RP, 3 P, i was thinking around 1800. Is that too much or too little. Thanks.
