    12 or 14 team league?

    another question to add to that: whats everyone's opinion about roster size for a 12 team league? I'd like to make it 22 with 2 dl spots, 9 starting spots for batters and 4 sp, 2 rp and 1 p for pitchers

    • I'd go the Yahoo set-up for pitchers of 2 SP, 2 RP and 3 P. Because otherwise you impose only own strategy of pitching and put the league in a straight jacket right off the bat. You should allow people to use the RP strategy and just balance it out so it doesn't go over the top with maybe 20-30 min innings pitched per week. Then let managers manage the way they want.

      I'd say a roster of about 25 at least so guys can take a chance on a rookie or prospect or 2 to squirrel away. But then I personally hate short rosters. If they are too short, how can you encourage trades. Guy is only carrying one person at 3B, he can never trade them except for another 3B. Again, a straight jacket situation to me.

      What I personally look for in a league is where I can manage how I want, I can have plenty of players to make deals with without always destroying my starting line-up and where you don't feel like someone is trying to impose their strategy on you. Just me ... but since you asked. :-)

      Good luck with your league.
