Rosters - Requests for new roster positions
Requests for new roster positions such as IL+.
This would be a great option for fantasy baseball. Nothing we as fantasy managers can do about real-life MLB 40-man rosters in Sept. and no need for MLB teams to put their players on the real-life DL.
This really comes into play in September when MLB rosters expand. Players that are normally prior to September placed on the DL, such as Alex Bregman currently, are just left on the roster since MLB teams have so many other options. Fantasy mangers don't have those same options. And worst yet, it occurs during the fantasy playoffs. This really needs to be addressed.
jg2 DTD players are treated the same way on a Hockey roster, it is only when they are listed as IR do they not count towards the 23 man roster. Yet in Yahoo Hockey leagues Commissioners have the option of adding an IR+ position which incorporates DTD. All this guy is saying is that Yahoo Baseball leagues should have the option for DL+. Not sure why Yahoo doesn't have this as an option especially when in Baseball injuries are more rampant and having a guy DTD hurts your team a **** of a lot more considering they play almost every day.
Fantasy sports don't reflect DTD players because it's no different than a regular baseball team.
DTD players ride the bench on regular teams, they should also reflect that way in your league. Now there may be some setting adjustments from the Commish side but my rule of thumb has always been 100% agreement for any league changes. They are still highly ill advised.
You have this option for fantasy hockey, why not baseball?
It's not funny a DAY TO DAY player to stay there for 5-6 days specially when it's a pitcher. We need the IR +
baseball is a lot different than hockey. Baseball has the 7 day, 15 day, 30 day and 60 day DL. Hockey has IR and "upper body injury" and "lower body injury"
Baseball with 162 games encompasses planned days off during the season, especially for batters and RPs. Baseball has no "healthy scratches" Hockey rests Gs regularly and position players and basically deactivates players each game with healthy scratched.
Not to mention, that baseball games have the potential to go on forever, while hockey games have a fixed, timed format for overtime.
Baseball and Hockey are apples and oranges.
Hockey has the IR+ spot available for players that are "day to day" or "out", it makes a big difference!

you should add a day to day like hockey where you can put him on the DL+ as some players sit for a week and are useless to a team and if the are valuable you cannot just drop them as you will lose them, add a day to day !!
