Need help with an IP limit

Postby krunchyfrogg » Tue Jun 04, 2002 5:34 pm

my Limit is set at 1350. I really don't have a lot of experience with this, but I do know I'm currently about 50 IP over the limit.

What is a good balance of starters to closers?

Currently, I have 4 Starters, and 6 Closers, and I'm benching Hudson and Mulder until they put together a few more solid starts.
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

Welcome aboard, krunchyfrogg! ("If we took the bones out, it wouldn't be crunchy, would it?" :-D )

+/- 50 isn't really a big deal at this point, and this year, more might be a good thing. In the case of a work stoppage, you want to have used as much of your ip allotment as possible in order to squeeze the most out of your team.

What's your league's scoring? I'd go by your needs here, using whatever pitchers give you the stats you need, with a tendency to burn more innings than you normally would (except in h2h, which is an awfully tough call this year).

Thanks for the welcome! :->

I'm fairly new to fantasy baseball, but I'll try to answer your question as best as I can.

My league scoring uses K's, WHIP, W, S, ERA.

It's a Yahoo.com league.

Thank you for the help. My game plan (for now) is to just let all these relievers play, and work in the starters when it looks like an advantageous game for me. I'm currently in last place, but I know it's a long season. Heck, if anything, I'm just learning more for next year.

Ok, with those categories (5x5 roto scoring), I'd burn innings like they were going out of style. If the season ends early (which it hopefully won't, but it's a possibility), you'll have a huge advantage over other owners who pace themselves normally and find themselves with lots of unused innings left over. If the season isn't shortened and you run out of innings, you can always trade your arms for hitters.

That said, trust your instincts where your starters are concerned, as you were planning to. If you don't like a matchup, then by all means sit your starter.

And you're right - the season is long. Plenty of time to rise in the standings!
