What are your league's requirements for IP and AB'S?

Postby crapshooter » Fri Feb 04, 2005 9:03 am

Our league uses a minimum of 900 IP and 4250 AB's. That seems to work pretty well with most teams meeting that. However it seems each year that there will be someone who doesn't meet the IP's.
What limits does your league set?
Both my leagues are straight leagues so that may make it harder to reach those than mixed leagues. I think either way should meet them easily though.

A minimum of 725 IP (half the maximum) at seven active pitcher slots with daily changes has worked rather nicely for my league in the past. We haven't used AB minimums; the IP minimum is there just to eliminate cutesy strategies, not to enforce activity. It really depends on what you're trying to accomplish with the limits.

My NL Keeper uses 800 IP minimum and it has worked pretty well for us...we haven't had a problem with teams not reaching and it cuts out most of the, to quote Arlo "cutesy" strategies...We he 8 pitcher slots to fill...with daily transactions... :-)

We don't use a AB minimum... :-?

No AB min. IP max of 1250-1550 is good depending on # of teams and roster size/setup. 800-900 min is good
