Is this a viable strategy to combat churning....?
In my league, the first place owner clearly has been spot starting whoever is a good matchup and did not draft a pitcher until the 9th round. It is clear that this is his technique, though to varying degrees of success. In our h2h matchup last week, I handed him his first loss 5-4, but I lost K's and tied W's because of his strategy.
Tonight a new strategy (to me anyway) dawned on me. What I have to do is scout the FA pool and repeatedly add and drop all of the starters that he would consider spot starting for that week. In a matter of minutes, I would block any transactions that he would make as it would take 3 days for these spot starters to again clear waivers and make it back to the pool.
This seems like it would work, no? Maybe not within what the game should be, but neither is spot starting as far as I'm concerned. It's a matter of working within the confines of the system and formulating a good strategy. Anyone try this? Look foward to hearing some responses....
