Currently I am cosidering going with

C

2CL

Do I need more? Less?

Bats are good....Pitchers should be 5 SP, 3 P, 2 RP with a minimum IP per week....

Hitters are ok, I'd go with 9 pitchers though.

Something like 4 SP, 3 RP, 2 P.

I just like the standard:

C, 1b, 2b, 3b, ss, of, of, of, util

sp, sp, rp, rp, p, p, p

6 bench slots

Easiest that way. Makes ranking players easier as well.

Those settings leave way too much talent on the FA list for my taste. Not that there is anything wrong with it (in fact I'm in 2 leagues with those settings this year) but I always think of Yahoo Default type settings as fantasy baseball lite.

change dh to util...

I like 9 p slots rather than splitting them up between sps and rps and cls. It gives you more flexibility and leads to interesting strategies.

Maybe too much talent on the bench, but if you play in a deep enough league, there's sure not a great deal of talent on the FA listing (at least there isn't more than scraps in my league).

The thread starter was asking about a 10 team league... Are you saying that he should add on 10 or more bench spots to give less depth on the FA wire? That seems a bit silly.

3B
SS
MI
CI
5-OF
1-Util
9-any P

No, not at all, I just didn't read that he was focusing on a 10 team league.
