Is there a way to make it so that no more (SP,RP) guys are able to be plugged into SP spots?

You can just alot, like, 7 pitchers slots to the roster, and then people can draft as many starters or relievers as they like, and determine their own split in pursuit of the "Win" and "Saves" categories.

Instead of:

SP
SP
SP
SP
SP
RP
RP 

You can just have:

P
P
P
P
P
P
P

And then people can determine their own needs and decided how many SPs or RPs they want based on their strengths and weaknesses in the standings at any given time.

Cool.  I think the combined with making a win worth twice as much (or more) as a save would fix any of the SP and RP scoring issues.

I think this is a good idea.  I've been tinkering with the stats a bit.  Dressel won the league no matter what, but if you eliminate the saves I end up in second.  Now that's not entirely fair because at first glance if you leave the straight RP guys that Scott had in, he still beats me because his RP (not SP/RP) guys beat me.  I still haven't checked if those guys only did the RP schtick or not. 

Baseball's my weakest sport for stats so I hope it stays up a bit longer.  Statistically I did pretty well in a number of categories but I need to look more at the way the points for the league were set up so I understand better.

That's not a really fair assessment, because you have got to remember that the SP/RP guys Scott and I picked up (fairly and within the confines of league rules I might add) take up a roster spot.  And if we did have a rule in place that limited a SP/RP's success for our team, we'd have picked up someone else.  In my case, I was deciding between Hermanson or Turnbow and Dontrelle Willis at the time, and I thought I only had 1 player I wanted to drop, so I couldn't take them all.  So I decided on a SP/RP, but had I not, and picked up Dontrelle Willis, I would have had almost as many points from that slot anyhow.


Maybe rotisserie format like basketball would be a good thing for baseball.
