      It should be OK unless a bunch or guys hit the DL.

      And that's the other thing.....how come only 1 DL slot?

      I know....it makes dealing with multiple injuries very tough if you intend to keep anyone.

      That's a good idea. I may change the number of innings in my other league.

      I think Yahoo added that as default this year. I don't change many settings, just innings pitched. That rule makes sense though so people don't stream 20 pitchers in one week during the playoffs to lock up wins and strikeouts.

      Yeah, we've always had 1. It sucks when a few guys go down, but that's why there are bench spots It also keeps the free agent pool from being depleted.

      Also, my offense has been unimpressive so far. Good thing the season is 162 games long...

      So I've somehow ended up with 6 closers. Anyone want to trade for a starter?

      I've got 5 top tier closers here, and a waiver guy who's in line for saves. Who needs one?

      Craig Kimbrel (37)
      Rafael Betancourt (37)
      Carlos Marmol (33)
      JJ Putz (32)
      Drew Storen (26)
      Henry Rodriguez

      Yahoo's projected saves in parentheses, except Henry Rodriguez who was just named Chicago's closer. By Yahoo Rank, Kimbrel is the top RP in the game, Storen is 6, Putz is 8, Betancourt is 15, and Marmol is 17

      It wasn't added as a default setting because it isn't there in the league that I commish. But I encourage people to try and drop pitchers in an effort to stock pile wins. Sometimes someone can scoop up some good pitchers that way.

      Ya, i never understood the aversion to other people doing this.

      You stockpile wins and Ks (maybe), but at the risk of WHIP and ERA. And then give others the oppty to grab the pitchers you're dropping left and right.

      When we played fantasy baseball in high school I had a friend who tried doing this and it backfired on him. It was awesome.

      It usually does backfire IMO. I've really only seen it happen during the last weeks of the playoffs in desperation.

      I can disable that if everyone wants it gone. It's not really important to me.

      Weird.

      I sort of used to the weekly limit because we had it in the basketball league but I'm fine either way.

      The reigning champ is looking like all of his star players left in free agency. I'm surprised there hasn't been a roster shakeup on Beng's team yet

      Theyre like last years Sox... Theyll stink in April. Be the best team in the league until the end of August... And then collapse in spectacular fashion before the playoffs

      Yep... I was going to ask about that.

      Also... for next year, it may be a good idea to add another DL spot. If we stay at 10 teams with rosters this deep, it makes sense.

      I had Pineda, Fister, Ryan Howard and Mike Morse all DL'd this year... and in looking at my roster compared to others Im realizing I cant compete if I carry 3 out of the 4 on my bench for the next 4-6 weeks (cut Ryan Howard today). Its stands to reason that with bigger rosters each team will have a higher number of DL players to deal with... and these guys shouldnt have to be just thrown back in the FA pool.
