I wouldn't have even considered drafting a closer in a H2H league where IP is a category, and your situation is a perfect example why. I wouldn't consider it a 'crap' strategy either - it's simply taking the rules into account and playing accordingly.
Edit: So, in answer to your question, if I were you I'd see what starters I can get for Wagner and Izzy and not play any closers.
Well, considering I've never played this before, I didn't know all the ins-and-outs of the game...especially one with scoring rules like this.
Obviously if I knew what I knew now, I would have just drafted all hitters and cycled 2 start guys around all year and not worried about closers. But, since I was still under the impression that getting a balanced team was important, that's who I drafted.
Oh well, I can't change that now. All I can do is try to offset whoever the other guys put out there and go from there. I sent quite a large message on the league board last night expressing my displeasure of the scoring system. I wasn't trying to be mean; I just wanted to let them know that I think this system doesn't actually prove who is the better fantasy drafter or manager. It only proves who is best at rotating their pitching staff each week.
