First, I agree with the fact that having two catchers is ridiculous. In fact, having two of any single position player on your roster active is ridiculous.
If you have a better roster, you build it, post it, and we will discuss it. We have had exactly ONE official suggestion on "large" roster so far, which I am against, but most of the others wanted, so I took it. So suggest something!
Anyone interested in making three of the OF positions LF CF and RF? It would be more true-to-life as the defensive demands of each outfield position vary greatly.
I am officially vehemently against this idea. The league is overly-complicated enough as it is. To the point where keeping up with it will probably rapidly become tiresome for me as it is. The defensive demands of the OF do not matter in our league at all. We are not doing defensive scoring. If you want to manage a "real" baseball team Bill, I'm sure you could just go buy one.
