They should just rename those league to All-Star only leagues (players not owners).
Even in 12 team leagues it gets a little ridiculous. For example I picked up virtually half of my league leading pitching staff off waivers and I virtually never make a trade in those sized leages -don't have to.
Now in my 20 team league H2H Salary Cap league - I'm in first place with a rotation of Nate Robertson, Dave Bush, Vicente Padilla, Scott Kazmir and Denny Bautista (with Zack Greinke and Ben Sheets being unavailable practically all year) and haven't been more than 5 gb at any time of the year. It's that sense of accomplishment that I look for in Fantasy Baseball - not how many 5 star superstuds I can have on my roster and still struggle to finish in the top 3.
When guys go down - it should hurt - BAD and it shouldn't be as easy as claiming an All-Star off waivers or choosing from one of 5 that have been rotting away on a deep roster bench.
Just my opinion.
