DL Max increase
Especially with the new 10-Day DL....Yahoo needs to move the 5 DL spot max to at least 8. At least half the teams have had to drop great players because the 5 person max allowed on the DL. I am the commissioner and I think you all should allow us to move it up to at least 8 but 10 would be perfect.
Having more DL spots more accurately represents the real game of baseball. It adds to the fairness of the game, and the abuse potential is almost nothing. I believe every player would agree that realism and control make the game better, while losing due to chance and because our platform doesn't accurately represent the real game of baseball only hurts it.
... offer an unlimited DL.

Professional analysts have unlimited DL and minimal bench in their Fantasy Industry Leagues like LABR and TOUT Wars. We should have the same option.

Please add DL slots - our league is being killed by the number of 10 day DL players. On a 27 player team, we are seeing 7-10 DL players so teams are using up the 5 DL slots and all the bench spots. With a large league, our FA wire is depleted so adding bench spots is counter effective.
Def support this. With the 10-day DL, 50% of opening day rosters are currently on the DL. Even with 5 spots being utilized, teams still have dead roster spots having to carry injured players. If the league's amended their rule, we should be able to as well.

It's bad enough when you have players hit the DL on your fantasy team, but there is nothing worse than when the injury bugs hit and you only have 2 DL spots. Being forced to drop keys players who are hurt because you don't have enough DL spots penalizes a team even more. Having more DL spots doesn't hurt anyone and allows a manager to navigate the injures better while still having a fighting chance to compete. Think about. If you have 5 players on the DL at the same time, you need all the help you can get. Many DL stints are only a few weeks or months, the players still have significant value for the entire season. There is just no reason to limit DL spots, especially in a PRO league where people are competing for money and trying to stay competitive all year. I believe this change could be made ASAP in season.

Allow for us to have unlimited players on the DL and keep a normal size roster, like any major league team
