Question about Max Innings/Max Games Played????

Postby ScrappyDoo » Thu Apr 08, 2004 5:06 pm

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]

yes, I agree with you, this format does seem to totally favor those who edit lineups everyday.

A limit should be set.

Caps on games played and innings pitched is a must!

If your league has already drafted, you're screwed because you can't justify changing the rules after people start playing.

Ah - you are in one of "those" leagues. Thats too bad. Is it h2h or roto? Im assuming h2h.

Not a lot you can do for this yr since youve already drafted, but come next yr you will be wiser.

This is one of the many reasons why Roto rules - IP and GP limits.

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

We have 4 SP, 3 RP, and 3 P, what should we set the inning max at. And we are able to still change the settings, i think it isnt too late to change it, its still early in the season.

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.
