I think 3-year leagues are the way to go. A quick summary of my reasoning:
- Eventually, no-limit leagues have a tendency of becoming non-competitive for a number of teams. There will usually be one or two teams willing to throw a season or two in order to “load up”, then dominate the league essentially forever.
- Limit leagues (3-years or less) still make players like Bonds, Randy, and the like valuable assets. I think the no-limit leagues pretty much deplete the worth of older players much more than in real life.
- A real MLB GM doesn’t have the option of holding onto a player “forever”. Of course, they have the option of trying to reacquire him from the FA market after his contract with the team is up. That’s the same concept as having to redraft a player after his term is up with your team.
