You've got a good offense, decent fielding, and a bullpen to die for.... If only you had some decent SP.
What? Why no decent SP? I always draft Addie Joss, Walter Johnson, and other deadball guys with WHIP's lower than Mickey Mantle's blood alcohol level.
Not in this league.
This league has a relatively simple twist.... But it will drive you crazy trying to win with it.
You need to draft 4 players with
- A minimum of 200 IP/162 each
- A minimum WHIP of 1.50
Each of the 4 players must exceed his real life IP/162 total in the sim for you to be playoff eligible.
These players must start a minimum of 150 games during the season. Yes, that means 12 games could conceivably be started by someone else.
All games must be in a stadium that is +1 or higher for 1b. You didn't think I'd let you hide those pitchers in Safeco or Shea, did you?
Oh yeah, all players on your team are 1940 or later. I don't want you to skew this with a bunch of 1930 or 1894 pitchers who would normalize pretty decently.
Simple, right? You just need to build a team of 1940-2012 players, with 4 guys with 200/IP and a WHIP that makes you cry. And you need to use them in at least 150 starts, and for their real life IP/162 totals.
You can do that!
