while its technically not cheating, its certainly a bit of a slimy move. Be that as it may, other players in the league can technically do the same thing if they so choose - so its not necessarily an unfair advantage.
On the other hand, if someone - like in my league - maxes out their allowed innings pitched, and then decides to cycle all of the probable starting pitchers for the next couple of days in order to prevent other teams access to the waiver wire, that's REALLY slimy.
Between your crying about the great pitching waiver tactic and you calling this "slimy" you must be one whiny, pathetic little crybaby. If you are a little infant about some free internet fantasy baseball I would hate to see how much you bawl about real life serious things. Just pathetic and infantile. Your parents must be just proud to have you living in their basement.
Yep you might gain K's & Win's but you risk ERA/WHIP but because it is hardly foolproof I would say it is a tactic rather than a cheat. I did this on Tuesday, was 5 innings short of 1400 picked up 7 starters and got 5 wins (was already way ahead in K's) and was middle of the pack in ERA/WHIP. I knew I needed a hail mary pass and succeeded. Actually gained a spot in Whip as well as 4 spots in W's so picked up 5 points which boosted me from 4th to 1st.
