just for fun....

Postby Bloody Nipples » Sun May 16, 2004 2:08 am

This question is about the league a guy in my most important league started for 6 of our friends, including us. Its a six team h2h league, with the normal positions, plus 2 IF, 2 extra OF, 3 extra Util, 2 extra SP, no RP, 5 P, and 5 bench spots. We count R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG, IP, W, CG, SHO, SV, K, total bases, ERA, WHIP, K/BB.

My question is about the pitching part of the league. I have the following pitchers:

Wood
Oswalt
Mulder
Wolf
Livan
Glavine

Rivera
Graves
Cordero
Nathan
Julio

K-Rod

My idea is, since this league is for pure fun, to go with only 3 workhorse pitchers, who get lots of CG and lost of IP, and have the rest be relievers. I figure this way I can all but always win SV, total bases, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, and have a decent shot at CG, SHO, K, maybe IP, but probably not W. If I trade most of my starters, I could get some better offense, too.

Who are the top 3 pitchers in terms of IP, CG, SHO, and K?

I think I have a couple good ones in Oswalt and Wood, and Livan and Mulder always seem to pitch a lot of innings, but are there better guys out there?

When I think of total innings pitched, Halladay springs to mind. ;-)

Complete games and shutouts are just such crapshoot it would be tough to build a strategy involving them. I would with go more of the strikeout pitchers that are horses.

I would say Halladay, Schilling, R. Johnson, Oswalt, and Beckett would be my top five with just those categories. Oliver Perez, Livan and Hudson would all be right there though.

top three pitchers in terms of IP, CG, SHO, and K i think are-

Mulder
Wood
Oswlat

maybe you can keep the four of em and trade Wolf and Glavine to improve at offense. good strategy tho... i think by doing this it would allow you to be at the top in SV, TB, ERA, WHIP, K/BB and still rack up atleast a few points in the SP cats. i think keeping four SP would make sure that you dont drop to the bottom in all the SP cats.

anyways as far as rating the top 3 in those cats goes id go with Halladay, Mulder and Schilling but yeah it is a crapshoot. ;-) anyways in ranking pitchers i hope that you also keep an eye on the other 6 cats too....
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

I think I'll keep Wood, Oswalt and Mulder and go for Halladay or Schilling for the fourth guy. Now I need to figure out my relievers. Maybe I could trade for Gagne? I will pick up Otsuka, Reidling, etc. Any other relievers who have incredible numbers?
