If you have no bench spots for offensive players, what do you do with the inevitable dings that can keep a player out for a few games, but dont put them on the DL? Do you just ride them out?

I probably have too many on my bench, 3 on one team. I like at least one mult-position guy especially for MI. It just doesnt feel like I have any flexibility without any bench offense.

Depends on the matchup for me and who I can pick up. If I am playing a tough team, or am losing in some offensive cats, I will either drop my worst MR or the worst SP, especially if that SP has a bad next matchup.

Its a 8 team, h2h with daily roster changes. My bench is so stacked right now offensively. i play matchups to pick two of these 4 for util each day. Blalock, Eric Chavez, Furcal, Pierre. None of these guys are droppable. My Sp are screwed by injuries (Bedard, Prior) so now I only have 5 and Bedard is taking up a roster spot. i cant drop him b/c teams in my league often snatch up DL guys of FA and waste a roster space in doing so.

exactly. in a h2h i generally go with mostly pitchers on the bench and one or at most two batters. but it really depends on

a)the rules of the league
b)what the other teams in the league are doing
c)what the free agent pool looks like
d)what your roster looks like


a)if the stats are geared toward quality (like k/9 instead of k) then generally fewer pitchers are warranted
b)if other teams in the league have lots of pitchers then you may need to have more starters to keep up with them
c)if there are guys that are either batters or pitchers that are so good that they shouldnt be free agents then pick them up and sort out the mess later through trades or when one of your guys gets injured
d)if you have a small number of good pitchers and struggling batters you may need to keep some offense on the bench. conversely if you have strong batters and some weak pitchers you may need to add more pitchers to compensate.

remember, head to head is all about how you match up against the other teams in your league. you need to structure your roster based on the situations prevailing in your league.

I also try to have as many SP's in my H2H league as well but it's not to say "Don't carry bench players". If there's a guy on your team or available in FA that is too good to be a FA you should keep him, for trade value, to protect you against injury, to play matchups, or in case he gets hot and you can sell high or use him while he's stroking it. The bat I mean ;-D
