Konfusing Kommish Kuote

March 5, 2015

Oof. KKK? That’s not good. Can somebody else start writing headlines?

Commish writes in part:

“One thing I would mention though is please consider an minimum inning increase to avoid the all reliever strategy.”

…and that makes zero sense.

The all reliever strategy, oft employed by this writer, is actually less attractive without Holds. With holds as a cat, that was a likely win every week if you ran seven or eight set-up guys, which I often did. Without holds, that likely win disappears.

If anything, the IP minimum could be done away with completely. Run all the 7th/8th inning guys you want.

Now I’m not advocating to remove IP minimum, I just don’t get the logic for an increase.
