Roster composition

There's no such thing as "off topic."

Roster composition

Postby jumpngeorge » Sun Sep 03, 2017 11:43 am

The roster composition of MLB 25 man rosters has changed. Teams carry more pitchers than they used to. All of us know that on the offensive side, we end up scraping the bottom of the barrel. At times there aren't any available free agents for some positions. Is there any support for modifying our rules in reaction to this?

We could ...

1) drop the 5th outfielder and add a 10th pitcher
2) drop the 5th outfielder and add a swing position that could either be a 10th pitcher or a second utility player

I like the idea of adding a 10th pitcher, and would be willing to change the 5th OF to a 2nd DH/UT position, expanding the rosters one additional spot.

Any thoughts on dropping the second catcher?

I'd be willing to consider that. Dropping a 2nd C is probably a good idea.

What about the following roster composition:

C
1B
2B
3B
SS
CI
MI
4 OF
2 UT
10 P

Total 23 man roster

MLB rosters have to have catchers! Second catcher brings realism to our fantasy
