Posted by cdc80uf on 3/13/2013 5:43:00 PM (view original):You current pitchers pitched about 1400 innings last year...While your team had 1467 innings last season and 1437 the year before...You would need career years as far as innings pitched out of your entire staff (without any injuries/ 47 and 53 health pitchers are a worry) to not need a 12th...
I always lean towards the extra pitcher, if only to keep my GOOD pitchers fresh for the closing run. While MIke is right about roster expansion, it also presumes that you're OK with throwing AAAA pitchers during the pennant race. If you have decent position players, you're almost always better off giving that 25th slot to an additional pitcher. If you have low STA/DUR or injury prone position players, well, then that's a different story.
