And this is the problem I was talking about with a GS limit rather than an IP limit. It's, IMO, unfair that a team can continue to accrue pitching stats after their "GS limit" has been reached. I don't know if you can use IP limit rather than GS in ESPN, but, again IMO, that's the biggest change that needs to be made for RCLs next season. Next would be deeper benches and another DL slot.
Agreed... It's counter intuitive that you can reach a "limit" and still continue to get stats. The way I read the rules on ESPN at the beginning of the year (I've never played fantasy sports on ESPN until this year for RCL - I've played Yahoo! exclusively since 2001), it sounded like once you hit 180 games started, you gain stats that day and then don't get anything else:
GAME START LIMITS
One aspect of strategy in fantasy baseball is not simply knowing who to start but when to start them. As such it is important to pay attention to your pitchers game started when setting your lineup. ESPN's Standard League game does NOT allow for unlimited streaming of pitchers. Listed below are the game start limits for both the ROTO scoring formats.
Roto - games started maximums
Batters - Unlimited starts - No maximums
Pitchers - Limited starts - Maximum of 200 games started
NOTE: If a team exceeds the 200 games started max in the middle of a day, the team will continue to accumulate stats until the end of the day.
At any rate, Yahoo! added the option for their leagues to be open to the public a few months ago, so maybe next year the RCL's could be moved to Yahoo??
Also, after holding David Wright all season, I agree that another DL slot wouldn't be so bad...
