Yahoo Leagues w/ no Minimum Innings Pitched Rule

Postby Members Only Jackets » Wed Apr 28, 2004 8:06 pm

Hi

I just figured out that my American League Yahoo settings do not require a minimum innings pitched rule....Now, theoretically speaking, I could bench my pitching staff and win ERA and WHIP....I'd lose in K's and Wins.....or maybe just play the decent ones. I could just play my RP's too....

thoughts?

Thanks

You'll lose saves too which means you punted 3 categories to win 2. Even if you sweep the hitting categories, I'm guessing that's not enough to win.

Public league? If the other owners are asleep or it's very inactive you could get lucky.

Doesn't stand a chance in a competitive league though.
