Of course we have waivers and of course he uses starters. When he starters are set to pitche he puts them on, in the 4 day period from one start to another, he uses the closers as SP's

And of couse we have an IP limit. But at an IP a game, closers dont do much damage in that department

Carmona. We design the league at 3 RP spots so closers wouldnt take over the league because of their advantage in IP use, hasnt worked

Most closers who are SP eligible usually aren't very good (Papelbon being the lone exception this year I think). How can he compete in wins and Ks, or even ERA and WHIP? Plus, this isn't any different than most setups... in a Yahoo standard 2 SP, 2 RP, 3 AP configuration, he'd still be able to use 7 closers. Sounds like sour grapes, especially using the time excuse.


In fantasy points you can pretty much punt any category as long as you get your points somewhere else. Were trying to keep the league balance and honestly the closers have taken to much relevance. Im looking for solutions "not enlightment"

Don't you just hate it when one owner makes a bunch of good moves, and you can't figure out a way to change the league settings to give the rest of you a boost?

We wish we didnt have to do that , but it does seem as the only solution. Glad to see youre still here Madison. I was wondering where sound advice went

Two solutions.

1) Next year, don't use any RP/SP distintion. Just use Pitchers. Makes everyone equal under the law. Closers may be more valuable, but at least there aren't some closers who are that much moreso b/c of a Yahoo designation.

2) Declare, pre-season, that you're going to police it. That there may be some relievers who are actually credited as starters but that you'll monitor and punish anyone who uses a pitcher in their improper position.

If you make it a H2H league you won't have that problem.
