if you wanna make it real then an everage ML staff throws just over 1450 innings per season... 1650 would allow people to fill up their staff with SPs imo. a 1650 IP and 9 slots would mean an avg. max of 183 IP per slot ! and when you do that people try to fill up their staff with below average SP's tp get W's and K's and the pitching stats in your league could get pretty ugly. thats how look at it.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
