CHANGE THE “7 Minimum Inmings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30. SP are worthless in your leagues.
Please change the “Minimum 7 Innings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30 Innings. You have all but negated starting pitching with your settings, especially second and third tier pitchers. In addition, you do not force managers to pick their starting pitchers each week. Owvers also pick RP over starters. Moreover, hitters are much more important than pitchers, which is insane. Finally, you will continue to lose players to RTSports and Fantrax if you keep this rule. Please up it to 25 or 30 Minimum Innings Pitched. Thank you

Managers are hoarding top closers, not using the SP rosters spots, hitting the 7 IP mark and winning ERA, SV, WHIP (3 of 5 pitching categories) Increase the minimum innings pitched to 14 so the owner will have to use a SP at some point.

At least in the pro leagues they should raise the minimum. It’s kind of a joke when you play one of these closers only managers and they are growing in number rapidly. Last year I had to deal with maybe one of them in each league. This year I’m finding two in some leagues. God help us if one person has multiple accounts. The 7 IP minimum needs to be raised in order to restore the leagues to where you actually have to manage a BASEBALL team.
7 innings for 7 pitchers in a week? Should be more. It's an invitation to game the system by using ALL relievers.
It should be an option, not across the board. in one of my leagues SP is key, in the other RPs hold more value. So it depends on your settings and scoring. It would be nice to see an option of 7 or 25.
