You didn't say which site your play on. On ESPN, they have a Maximum Pitcher Starts each week, ten is probably a good number. In my H2H league the pitcher catagories are W, S, K, Whip and ERA. There is about half the league who tries to use mostly relievers and a few starters. I don't do that. I prefer to try and get good starters and a few relievers. My opinion is that I welcome someone to do it to me. They will lose W and K. There is no guarantee they will win ERA and Whip. If their relievers give up a couple runs, it kills them for the week since they have few innings pitched. I don't see it as a problem, just another way of trying to win. == If you are trying to stop that you can require each team to carry a minimum amount of starters. You would be much better off to not do that in my opinion. Try eliminating all of those catagories and you might try getting an even number of owners in a H2H league. It sure makes for a better league. The schedule is messed up otherwise. Good luck

It is too many. Even in my league with nine, it is rare that I getf more. This week I have more than nine, but I think it is only the second time. I just bench the ones that are not too good. Both leagues have nine starting positions and I use two bench spots for pitchers, so it is pretty easy to get to the max number. I don't think that is really a problem though. I play in a NL only league so all the good pitchers are drafted. If you play in a mixed league you need to have a max number of starts because there are so many good starters in the player pool. == One thing a leagues needs also is a low number of player pickups each week. If you can just change players everyday, it takes the skill out of it. One league I am in has no limit. My league has a limit of five each week. The league with no limit just does not take much skill, you just pickup and drop whenevery you want.

If you had looked at the league settings and then thought of how they could be best maneuvered, you would be reaping the benefits just like your leaguemates. In a league like this, it makes sense to draft pretty much just hitters and then to select pitchers that eat up innings and get Ks late, eve nif their ratios aren't great.
