I'm not really understanding this. I understand why you don't want people to tank, and you want them to play more, but if they aren't, I don't really know how to punish them or... un-punish them in an automated way. Do you just mean you'd want us to automatically change people's rosters if they fall sufficiently below the GP/IP limits?
I have no clue how tough it would be to code it, but there is already the projected games played per position that is in place regarding maximum limits. What I would like to see, as a commissioner of a league that does have minimums, is a way to award zeroes in any category that does not meet the set minimum in games played or IP. Our league uses 1300 IP and 145 G/position for the minimum...so about 90% of the maximum. Last season, I was forced to go in and check the non-contenders once or twice a week in the final two months and take appropriate measures. In a dynasty league, there is certainly a temptation to tank once a team in out of it.
This is exactly what I don't understand. It really seems like you just said, "If a team is trying to tank, I want you to punish them by giving them all 0's for scoring." If a team is trying to tank, isn't that *exactly* what they want?

We've now identified two cases where a pitcher didn't have enough games to qualify as a SP or RP, and in both cases was marked only a P. Yeah?
no, last year Moore WAS given RP status to begin the year.
and all the other guys from the above quote were also given either RP or P status to begin the year as well, even though they had not accumulated enough appearances from the previous year.
i think the conclusion that was reached last year, and was then implemented prior to Opening Day, was that from a logic standpoint, you could say that it is impossible to be a P without being either a SP or an RP first.
also common sense dictates this.
Thanks for the reminder. A few of us now remember the sequence of events, and after consideration, we're going to resolve both Teheran and Justin Grimm from P to SP. I'm hoping to get this done tomorrow, which means you might see the change in-game on Friday. That's my goal.

Set a limit for starts or innings per week, and just enforce it. Put it on the shoulders of the league members to monitor their opponent, and if they are in violation, they are penalized and lose every category for the week (if Yahoo lets the Commissioner edit this -- I assume you could retroactively have the offending team sit their entire roster for the week and they'd lose 10 - 0 or whatever).
Either way, there is a way to have this without having it built into the game.
