The strange way TB and OAK are using pitchers

Maybe this came up and I missed it, but both TB and Oakland seem to he using this new opener, primary pitching concept. Which leads me to wonder how I play Mengden. He only has SP eligibility but he keeps getting put in during the second inning for like 5 innnings. How do we deploy and deal with this new situation?

This thread covers pitcher usage and how Ottoneu Fantasy Baseball and real-life are aligned. As a quick reminder: pitcher eligibility does not matter in terms of preventing you from putting a pitcher in a slot, and the slot you put a pitcher in has to align with how they are used in real life. Openers are just starters that can’t (or don’t, if we’re being generous) go through the lineup more than once.

Thank you Niv, you are awesome as usual.
