Personally, I'd like to think our league is better than that for someone to resort to streaming. My fav. way to prevent streaming is to implement what I call the "Ball Sac Rule". This is how it goes; if someone streams, we all get to punch him in the ball sac. I feel like that is a pretty powerful incentive (or decentive).
If we really have to institute a legit anti streaming rule I'd rather not do a max innings pitched limit. Personally, I'd prefer a max moves per week or max moves per season. Also in one of my other leagues we basically just have a rule that a pitcher has to be held for at least 72 hrs before being allowed to drop them (barring injury or demotion).
I'd probably do 24 hrs to start. Have we ever had an issue in terms of getting this thing done on time? This way we give people who aren't in mid-season form a little time to shape up...
Not during the regular season, but it's common practice during the playoffs (which might explain you having not noticed it...
.) Tough to punch someone in the ball sac since most of us have and will never meet. I like the 72 hour rule, but it's harder to enforce.
Setting the max works in redraft leagues, but we would have to set it higher than usual in order to not penalize someone who is simply promoting and demoting players from their farm.
Personally, I think 12 hours is plenty of time. We're using it now in a league, and it keeps things humming along. If people plan ahead, there's no reason to miss their 12-hour window - they can just send their picks to someone else before their clock starts.
