In!

I like the IP how we had it last year. You could manipulate the K category and the QS category if there were no IP restrictions.

Team Name Metry Hit Men

if we have 14+ owners i think we should cut the IP back a little bit (1300).

otherwise the set up is perfect

I remember that I was basically streaming to hit the IP limit.

yea i could be wrong but i thought we use to do 1300 or less. 1400 may be ok for 12 team leagues but any more i think it makes sense to lower it.

In once again. I prefer to leave the innings limit as is. As a league we all work with the same constraints.

I think streaming is part of the strategy in this league. basically picking up spot starters against weak offensive teams.

I personally like the innings the way we had them last season. Honestly if I could change anything I’d rather go holds/saves instead of just saves. Baseball is becoming more unconventional with how it uses its bullpen.

I am pretty sure it has always been 1,400 (the ESPN default), but it may be worth a discussion. With risking hurting your ERA and WHIP and it getting so damn hard to find decent QS, it really only lets you stream K's.

Not a major rule change, but I will make a poll on it once we know the number of teams.
