If only I could figure out pitching, I'd be set...I think my pitching will keep me from making. My starting is ok, my bullpen is horrid.
I have been playing for a while now and I have had good sucess, but I will admit that pitching still perplexes me at times. A few things it took me some time to learn:
1) I think the performance curve is pretty shallow once you get past $40k/ip but it drops off pretty bad below $33K/ip. There are, of course exceptions, but the general point holds. Also this isn't meant to imply that all expensive pitchers are good values or even good.
2) High K, low to moderate BB pitchers are more likely to greatly exceed their innings pitched because their real life K stats are high. Unfortunately those Ks also hurt them in the sim by reducing double play opportunities.
