Commissioner Corner Message Board
I've played fantasy baseball for two years now and have got some friends to join in. I've only played in 5x5 H2H 12 team leagues. Everyone in the league knows quite a lot about the players in general. I was wondering if you have much of a difference in team quality from 12-14 size leagues? And which would you recommend?
I don't want to ruin there first league just because 14 teams could possibly be too many.

consider 12 or 16 teams. Then you can have divisions. Divisions are realigned each year. The teams that finished 1-4 after the postseason will comprise the "NORTH" division, the next four teams will be in the "SOUTH" division, the next four teams will be in the "EAST" division, and when we have four divisions the final four will comprise the "WEST" division.

I don't think fantasy baseball is as impacted by expansion as fantasy football. For example our baseball league has 16 teams, 5 x 5 H2H, and is just fine. Our football league is maxed out at 14 teams. If anything, fantasy baseball is better with more clubs involved.

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.
