Not a huge fan of my offense but pitching is stout. Seven closers bring the offers boys. I'd be willing to let one or two go for Stanton. You listening Preak?

For those that haven't played please feel free to ask questions. Yahoo provides tons of tools that help. As far as pitching set ups I use MLB.com the night before. If you hover the mouse over the 'players' tab at the top of the page it will bring down a drop down menu. Click 'probable pitchers'. It is a huge help and usually shows starts a couple of days out.

Yes, I usually do it the night before. Check your next days lineup to see who is playing, has the day off, evaluate matchups etc. There is also a max cap for innings pitched and games per position. Players can only play where eligible, this is where players like Miggy or Lawrie become valuable (not that Miggy isn't regardless). But for example, Miggy is Yahoo eligible at 1st and 3rd, it gives you lineup flexibility. Lawrie is 2nd and 3rd.

Edit: You're actually pretty solid, saves, sp, power, sb's. Good draft.

yes.
you put in a daily line-up
if your starting pitcher is not starting that day, then use your extra P spots on relief guys (you can start 2 SP, 2 RP, and then a few others that are P ----- those extra P can be either SP or RP)

Sorry, I couldn't draft for you. Tell you what though, look through the waiver players and pick two. I'll swap them out for you. You have a solid team even considering that happened.

D2R, you decide to punt the saves category or did you just forget about it? I have some of what you need.

I still don't understand this. So we can use two starting pitchers and two relief pitchers per day?

I know nothing about how points work or any of that, I'm still trying to figure out the basics, like how to set up my lineup

What if we don't have any starting pitchers who are starting any particular day?

Only SP's can go in the top two spots but sp's or rp's can go in the other pitching spots. You could start seven sp's per day if you wanted but there is a maximum innings limit so you would use that up quickly. Also, saves are a category. If you were to not have saves and you come in last in that category you better kick ass everywhere else as you are automatically giving up a potential 12 pt swing.

Scoring categories are;

Offense : Runs, hr's, rbi's, sb's and average.

Pitching : Wins, saves, k's, era and whip.

Each category is scored from 1 pt to 12 based on the leader in the category. The best score is 12 and the worst is 1. All points from all categories are added up and the highest point total is the winner. The goal is obviously to do as well as possible in all categories. That is why it hurts so much to punt one.

To reach the maximum innings pitched limit you have 8.2 innings pitched per day to use. If you have no innings pitched in a day that is fine, they carry over. There are a total of 900 innings available to use for our season. The goal is to use them all. If you use only 800 for example but I'm able to use 900 worth those 100 that you didn't use cost you a ton of k's, wins, saves or whatever.

There is a max with position players too as far as games played. You have one day of use per position for each game the remainder of the season. If your 1st baseman plays every single game from here on out you have no worries but more than likely he gets a rest day or whatever. Now you are short a day. You can use a bench player to make that day up if you choose.

I wouldn't worry about max innings or max games until September

right now build up as many stats as possible

8th inning guys are OK to add since they usually have good era and whip and can get occasional vulture wins and saves
(guys like pitt melancon, Yankees betances)

D2R ---- those are type of pitchers you might want to add if you don't have any RP on your team
