By limiting the supply of pitchers by capping starts, wouldn't that making teams be less selective because they have less options?
With fewer options, you would have to be more selective. For example, if you've only got 1 start left, do you start Chris Young at Colorado, or do you go with Derek Lowe at home vs. the Mets?
