I use the same strategy although our minimum is alot higher than 7 innings. I usually see if their first starter gets lit up or is lights out. I he gets lit up then I am more bold in who I start and if he is lights out than I look at the splits and see who my pitcher pitches well against. My only question is with this league setup why didn't you pick hitters in the first 7 rounds and then start grabbing relievers like krod, lidge, dotel, and like one good starter. Your team would literally be unstoppable. Our minimum is 35 innings to discourage things like that but that number is still a joke. My team is beat up right now but I still dominate all offensive categories since I waited for a while on the bulk of my pitching. Another thing it allowed me to do was overload in certain positions to use as trade bait, which is how I got Prior. I'd look into making some trades to trim some of the dead weight off of my team. If you have any pitchers that have a good name and win but don't fill out the statsheet like tim hudson or someone like that I'd look to trade him. When you try to toe the inning minimum you have to make sure whoever you do throw can dominate like schill, unit or prior.
