If this is a public Yahoo leauge, then it is against the rules...and I pull these up all the time to answer these questions:Yahoo !

Now, if it's a Private league, then it says all things are controlled by the commissioner...but if you have a good one, they wouldn't allow this stuff to happen either. The problem is that if they didn't set a move limit or state that cycling pitchers was wrong, then I suppose you could do it.
The only thing that comes from doing this is animosty among your leaguemates and the possible "bad feeling" you may get for doing something like that. If no one cares, that's fine...but if you have some people that don't condone that action, they may not play in your league next year.
I know this will start a firestorm, and I'm not going to say anything more on the subject. I'm just giving the purist's side of the story.
