And it is weekly lineups, not weekly transactions. You can pick up players all you want day to day but rosters are effective for an entire week. Same for eveyone and really does it really make a difference if game played and IP limits are put into play in daily leagues? Not really.
I like weekly formats better...always have as it cuts out the BS roster moves that daily leagues can have. You are supposed to field your best team for the long haul in Roto and emulate a real baseball team as much as possible. Real baseball teams do not pick up a reserve C on Saturday to play him on Sunday while Posada sits and then cut him loose on Monday. If you get a thrill out of adding a marginal C for 4 ABs and think that adds to the fantasy game significantly, more power to you. Nothing wrong with Daily leagues as long as the proper rules/lmits are in place...nothing wrong with weekly ones either imo. Simply a matter of preference.
May not be a strange rule to you but it is to me, like I said in a pervious post I enjoy coming home from work and getting my roster ready for the next day. This weekly roster change reminds me of fantsy football, you have one guess to see who is going to preform the best for the week. And this is not a roto league either, as stated earlier. As for dropping and adding players just for the fact of having a person to fill a spot, I personally have only seen that done in the playoffs. and sure that is a problem, but one that could be handled differently. I spent time picking players for this team and not to be able to play a pitcher that I draft on any givin day personally I think is very lame. You should be able to play whomever is on your roster at any givin time IMO.
