There needs to be a maximum IP limit in H2H categories baseball leagues
There needs to be an option to set a maximum number of innings pitched in weekly head 2 head categories baseball leagues

A head-to-head points league just becomes a pitcher streaming competition. This is game breaking. Please fix!
Totally agree.the standard pro league isn't so much a pro skills league as a pro sit around waiting for 2start SP to clear waivers league.its within rules but Hawking waiver wire and starting the same junk pitchers that everyone's added and dropped 3x already isn't a skill. Standard category pro leagues inevitably turn into a stream fest to accumulate wins ,ks. A season transaction cap or so inning limit would solve this.i favor season total cap for transactions. A default roster with less pitcher spots may also work but is less effective and could cause issues when a team has all their starters going on a given day.

You can set an innings limit for the season. Good enough

What if all your "BN" are SP's? Most MLB Teams play 6x's a week. So why do you need BN for Batters.. My team is All SP. and 3 RP. Why should you get penalized for having all BN being SP.... Stay active in your league and your fine. PAY ATTENTION.....

I disagree. In this day and age of daily fantasy people like to stream pitchers and get 2 start pitchers for the week. The most active of owners have no problem with this. If anything, have a competitive/active stream league setting and a lazy/non-active league setting for those who are just casual users at best.

Max innings limit or a limit on starts by pitchers

Why not set a weekly transaction limit?
Max innings pitched for weekly head to head matchups is needed. Very simple, scoring for pitching category stops once inning limit is met.
Agreed, we have had people quit because of 1 or 2 guys that stream like madmen during the playoffs. Totally not cool and although I like some of the rules you guys have put in place, it would be better if Yahoo just set up a max innings pitched option in H2H. I'm also going to say that IF you are found streaming during the playoffs, your team will be locked. Just hate that I have to watch over it this closely. Come on Yahoo, please listen to the user community.

I agree that a max innings setting for H2H would be great. As a workaround, our league has been using the following rule: "Any newly acquired SP must remain on that team's roster for at least 7 days, unless he gets injured or sent down in which case he may be moved to a DL/NA spot."
We still use/like daily transactions for hitters and relievers, so our 7-day SP rule is not enforced by Yahoo. It's just a tiny bit of additional work for the commish/owners who simply keep an eye on the transactions log in case an owner accidentally drops an SP during the 7-day period.
We settled on 7 days because it allows owners to try to grab 2-start pitchers for each weekly matchup, but it has really helped with the streaming issues we've had in the past.

This needs to be implemented or at least the ability to combine max acquistions per week along with the ability to control the amount of SP's allowed on a team.

We have the exact same issue, people just pick up pitchers, and its a huge edge if a pitcher has more than one start in a week
This has been the biggest issue in our league for years. I understand the issues with a max innings setting, but attempting to add and start as many starters as possible is a bigger issue for us
Like serious flaw yahoo!!! Fix this
