    pitching advice

    1st time playing baseball. Should I load up on starting pitchers and get rid of utility players? Don't think I need 3 2B and 4 1B.

    • Check your league's settings. If you're in roto with a low IP limit, you'll hit it pretty quick loading up on starters.

      That said, having too much depth at any one position can be a bad thing, since you can leave a bunch of stats on the bench. One thing you could try is to use one of those roster spots on a middle reliever or 2, but not necessarily a closer. In the past, I've added elite middle relievers to help out in a few categories while keeping my IP in check. They can help out quite a bit.

    • Depending on bench size, I like to keep a backup at 2B, 3B, and SS - hopefully a guy with multi-pos eligibility if possible. That having been said, I would definitly grab some pitching if there are some quality hurlers available.
