I could trade some away for position players...
"Each week, your pitching staff must total a minimum of 7 innings pitched. If you fail to reach this mark, you will lose all of your pitching games for that week".
Part of how you would compose any fantasy baseball team will depend on the specific categories being scored. You haven't given us those. My money H2H league requires a minimum of 42 IP per week as a comparison since it appears your question was posed relative to your league only requiring 7ip for the week. Seems screwy, but I'm betting the scored pitching categories are manipulated for that to be feasible.
An example why knowing the scoring cats are necessary: With only 7 innings required, and say you only pitch Strasburg, likely you'll win whip, era, bbs given up, HRs given up and least losses for the week, and if those are the only pitching cats you'll do well. However, if your league doesn't score the above, and/or scores additional categories like Ks, Wins, S, holds, picks, etc, a smart manager will pitch just enough innings to steal categories from you.
