Double Header Strategy

Prior to this season, I usually made sure to get players slated for a doubleheader into my lineup. 2 games worth of plate appearances but only 1 game towards limits? Sign me up.

Now with doubleheader games being limited to 7 innings, I often think it through a little more. Fortunately for me, a lot of my hitters this year are hitting near the top of the lineup and can still get 4 platete appearances even if they happen to sit for the second game.

But for players who are slated to start but hit lower down in the lineup, I really only feel confident starting them if I know they are likely to play both games.

Doubleheaders always counted 2 games towards game limits. @chy924 just talked about Ottoneu doubleheaders on Keep or Kut:

Well… now I feel foolish.

But doubleheaders should count only as one game, unless Otto has the capability to differentiate between players who play in one or both games of a DH. Otherwise one game s/b the rule for double headers. This is especially true now that both ends are 7 innings.
