Regarding starting pitchers


Hey all. Thought I'd share this roster rules issue with you and get your thoughts on it. I've played fantasy for a long time, and I've had to tackle this problem with a while.

I joined an NL-only H2H league this season...10 teams, so it's a pretty deep league. We can start 7 pitchers a week, but 5 of them have to be starting pitchers., and 2 have to be relievers. No flex spots. We can also keep 6 players of any type on a reserve list. Now, do you see the problem coming? With 50 starters required to be on active, and each owner (in theory) able to have up to 6 more starting pitchers on reserve, it leads to the fact that Kyle Weiland of the Astros is currently the best starting pitcher available. I like a deep league and all, but this is ridiculous.

I'm trying to explain the problem with some of the old owners, and one guy (who also happens to have horded a ton of pitching) doesn't see the problem with the lack of talent available. Oh and also, this league doesn't force you to activate a guy off the DL when he comes back. Yep, it's another free stash.

So anyway, any of you have SP/RP requirements? Or just use an innings minimum? I'm trying to find a way to get through to these guys. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
