    This is not an issue about streaming. This is a keeper league that we've had running on Yahoo for the past 4 years and we can only add players on a weekly basis via a weekly FAAB blind auction. The issue is that we have a 6x6 league with IP as a category (we are going to switch to quality starts next year, but it doesn't change the problem). We capped the amount of pitchers you can have on your roster, but it doesn't really make a difference. If both teams have 13 pitchers with 10 being starters, if one team has 5 guys that go twice and the other guy only has 1 guy that's going twice, he's most likely going to lose in wins, IP, K, and quality starts. The only tool that can fix this is would be a cap to starts, like in an ESPN league (I'm currently in one and am enjoying it a lot, hence my consideration to switch over to the dark side).

    ESPN does it beautifully, even warning me (mobilly and on the computer) if I'm approaching my starts limit---in that league it's 9 per week. If I log in on a Thursday and I've already had 6 starts, it's surely going to let me know I'm close to the limit.

    Yahoo could surely do this easily, and it should put it right next to the innings pitched amount on the bottom of the screen (the minimum innings pitched count). I've been the commissioner of this league for four years consecutively and our Yahoo football league is going into it's 12th season. I don't want to switch to ESPN, but that's a much easier option than manually enforcing a starts cap.

    You should give the commissioner the option to cap starts per week like I can do in ESPN. In my league with innings pitched as a category the team with more starts will win a significant portion of the categories due to random variance. If there was a max starts allowed option, this issue would be eliminated. This is a major issue within my keeper league, one that if it's not resolved we'd strongly consider going to ESPN.
