I'm currently playing in a 10 team roto league that has a max of 2000 innings pitched. Lineups are set weekly. I didn't even realize the max innings pitched was one of the settings otherwise I wouldn't have signed up for the league. That's ridiculously high. Now that I'm involved though, I was curious what others think should be the strategy when it comes to my pitchers each week. Is it wise to just load up on as many two start pitchers as I can in hopes of leading in the wins and strikeouts category? The pitching requirements are 2 starting pitchers, 2 relief pitchers and 5 of any other pitchers.
Here is what I have on my roster as of Saturday evening. I've also listed how many starts they're projected to have in week 3.
brandon beachy 1 start @ Dodgers
ubaldo jimenez 1 start vs Royals
ian kennedy 1 start @ Marlins
mike minor 1 start @ Dodgers
colby lewis 1 start vs Rays
kyle lohse 1 start vs Brewers
jake arrieta 1 start vs Athletics
brandon mccarthy 1 start @ Orioles
My relievers are Betancourt, League, Kimbrel & Motte.
Here are some of the waiver wire options...
bartolo colon ** 2 start vs White Sox, @ Orioles
gavin floyd ** 2 start @ Athletics, vs Red Sox
henderson alvarez ** 2 start @ Orioles, vs Mariners
ted lilly ** 1 start vs Braves
jair jurrjens ** 2 start @ Dodgers, vs Pirates
daniel bard ** 1 start @ White Sox (qualifies as relief pitcher, not starter)
trevor cahill ** 1 start vs Phillies
jonathan niese ** 1 start vs Marlins
edwin jackson ** 1 start @ Padres
lance lynn ** 1 start @ Cubs
vance worley ** 1 start @ Diamondbacks
mark buehrle ** 2 start @ Mets, vs Diamondbacks
chris capuano ** 2 start vs Braves, vs Nationals
Through the 1st two weeks I'm leading in ERA @ 1.93, Whip @ 1.03, 2nd in Ks @ 116, 2nd in Wins with 9 and 1st in saves with 13. I've had a total of 139.2 innings pitched so I'm still under pace for 2000.
Any thoughts on what I should do this week? I really don't have a stud pitchers on my team. Are there any of these guys that should not be dropped?
