I mean that's the premise of H2H, is to win the category for that week. If adding 4 starts gives me a better shot at doing, why would that be a bad strategy/unethical? You're basically handcuffing yourself.
I think it's an unwritten rule to NOT change any rules during the season. You all should know what you can and can't do within the limits of the league BEFORE you draft. Max innings/Max moves/Max starts all counter this, if your league doesn't have it, you better use that opportunity when it arrives.
Yeah, that's bush league. So your starters failed to get the amount of Ks and Ws necessary to win the week, so you're dumping them to chase those stats? Completely bush league.
I don't agree. It's a trade off and a risk. I shouldn't give my opponent any categories in the week if I have the chance to still win those. I'll take that opportunity every time. I'm not saying I do it every week, but when it presents itself hell yeah I do. I guess I don't see the logic in giving up a category because of pride in the "integrity of the game".
But to put it in perspective, I don't play in any league that doesn't have any counters to limit this to an extent (Losses, max innings, max moves) so when I do it's within the limits. If you're not getting the most out of your team every week, then you need to find a way to do it. You don't want to leave anything on the table.
And even if you're league doesn't have any counters to it, you still better be doing it if you have a chance at winning one more category.
