Now that it's playoff time, there's a team in the playoffs that is now cycling through starting pitchers on the waiver wire making sure that he has at least one starter every day. Is there any strategy to defend against this, 'cuz this easily gives him a jump on W's and K's and maybe more if it works out decently for him. If me and the guy both win our matchups this week, we'll be facing each other, so I need to figure out what to do. My pitching staff is pretty decent, should I look at spot starting some starters?
I closely won a playoff game last week because the guy tried to chase my lead in Ks because he was too afraid I'd spot start him to death. He started off with great Ws by Colon and Sabathia while my Schmidt blew up. After my spot starts of Robertson and Tomko got me a healthy K lead, he pulled in a Santos start, and I made up so much ground in the ratios that I swept pitching and won the game. If you have a good staff, don't spot start. If, like me, you've only got 4 decent starters, then pulling in someone vs. ARI or KC is your only strategy at this point.
be care with KC, though. They have scored 26 and now 17 runs in games in the last week. They are bad, but they can also explode for some serious scoring. If you want to take advantage of that, though, start somebody against them the day after an explosion, cause they most likely will not do it again. Mussina is going today, and I am very confident in him for this game.

Churning is not illegal. You're attempting to improve your standing in the league, which is clearly stated as legal in rule #1. If it's a private league then the commish sets the rules and Yahoo default rules don't apply. Unless of course your commish says you have to play by the Yahoo rules.
