Top 80 Starting Pitchers Broken into Quartiles

Postby Honus » Fri Feb 18, 2005 11:04 pm

I know that because there are so many of them (and because they can get injured/lucky/unlucky), people have different rankings for starting pitchers. So, I am not looking for "Who do you have #7 vs. #8?" Instead, I have broken 80 of the top pitchers into 4 quartiles and I'd just like to confirm or deny whether I have each of these pitchers at least in the right "tier." This is for a 12 team standard 5x5 roto league. Do you think any of these guys should be moved to a different quartile? If so, who and where should they be moved to? Have I left any good pitchers out? Thanks for offering your opinion! ;-D

Bonderman and Freddy should definately NOT be in the very good quartile, while Thomson and Webb should be. Horacio Ramirez should not be in any quartile. That's all that stuck out to me. I'd also take Blanton or Bush over a bunch of the guys in the last quartile.

Was that sarcasm? If not, how many SP's do you usually carry on your team? 12? 80 is almost 7 per team in a 12 team league.
