I can choose 1 spot from 2 pitchers or 3 pitchers. You'd be more selective from the 3 pitcher selection since there is more to choose from. In your case Young is a flyball pitcher, so he's probably do bad. Lowe has a career 8.78 ERA against the Mets. The best choice is to use waivers to get Gabbard. Limiting starts limit strategy since it limits variance. If you one of those big government people who want them to regulate the way you eat/sleep/drink, then I guess limit starts. That way every week the same amount of starts are used and it decreases any sort personal freedom in the league.
