Seven out of the 12 managers in my league are running WAAY over their pitching quotas. On average these guys are at about 380 innings, when a pace to get them to the 1250 IP limit would have them at about 270 IP now. Myself, I'm at about 255 IP.
I'm thinking of taking it easy, being extremely selective with my pitching, and waiting until the middle of August when all these guys start running out of pitching availability, and then trading for their studs.
Right now, my pitching isn't much anyhow:
Baez (Piece 0' Crap)
I recently traded away Randy Johnson (who I believe is done as a premier pitcher) and Troy Glaus to get Andruw Jones.
I'm thinking I could get a lot in the way of offense for Scott Kazmir too. For instance, Kazmir and Alex Rios for Vladdy.
I've looked all over for some other good pitchers, and they're just not there. I guess this goes along with the fact that everybody's running up their IP. I could fill out my pitching roster with guys like Duaner Sanchez, and others who don't pitch much but have great strikeout ratitos, ERA, and WHIP.
Thanks in advance.
If you want my help, just ask in your reply. Althogh this post may indicate that I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
