SP Strategy Question

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

SP Strategy Question

Postby Stumanji » Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:56 pm

My roto league has some interesting settings. Starting pitching slots are 3 SP, 2 RP, and 4 P. Innings Pitched is a roto category (as in, more IP=more points), however there is also a 200 start limit. So in order to win the IP category, you'd theoretically want to throw as many SP as possible. However, this would inevitably hurt your other categories.

What should my strategy be based on these settings? Should I be picky about who to start and worry about my peripherals? Should I be monitoring my pace so that I don't run out of starts towards the end of the season? My pitchers are listed below. Should I maybe pick up a great MR like Sergio Romo to help with peripherals like WHIP and K/BB?

Other pitching categories are QS, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, and K/BB

All suggestions and feedback are welcomed. Thanks.

With your categories, you want a better than average pitching staff... K/BB, QS and IP weigh the categories that way...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

So quality over quantity?

I feel like I have 3 above average SP (although they all have question marks) in Hudson, Latos, and Darvish, and then 4 wild cards in Minor, Peavy, Scherzer, and Anibal. Should I be trying to trade for another good SP?

Yup, quality.... I'd give the season a couple of weeks and see where you stand, making waiver wire moves where you see fit to grab a potential breakout SP...

Just traded Broxton for a DLed Scott Baker. Considering my depth at closer, I thought it was worth a shot at another potentially solid SP.
