:-° Only Kendrick and Chris Young (SP) in two spots. I had Gallardo and dropped him as soon as it was announced that he was out for the year; I also had Rafael Soriano and dropped him when I had to make room to add Kemp (Smoltz was already announced as closer-to-be). And I drafted Harden in the 16th round. He's not on the DL, but....you know. :-)

I play in two leagues - the first is 16 teams with 20 man rosters / 5 bench plus 3 DL spots, the second is a 10 team league with 22 man rosters / 6 bench but no DL. The first league is obviously deeper hence the DL slots act as a safety net so that owners don't have to drop decent players on to a very thin waiver wire.



I think keeper/dynasty tend to have more DL spots, though its usually up to the Commish. The league I commish has 3 cause I think thats about right and prevents people from stocking up injured players. My 20 team dynasty has 10 spots though, so we can protect guys like K. Escobar and Zumaya who are out for an extended period

Well, at least there is company to my misery! :-D
Unfortunately, I have used all of my WW moves for the week, but next week I will drop my catcher (Pierzynski subbing for Posada) to pick up a 3B (add Kouzmanoff for Figgins); so I'll be playing without a C, which seems like the logical thing to do at this point!

The thought of not starting a full roster just kills me!

it definitely seems like more than a few top players (and a lot of above average players too) have landed themselves on the DL.

right now I got:
Furcal
Holliday
Peavy
C. Young
Liriano (NA)

and only 1 DL spot!

Thank god Bruce got called up, or he would be on the "NA" part of this list too

Hopefully they can get healthy fast

12 team redraft 1DL spot
Peavy
Smoltz
C. Young
Figgins

oddly enough I have gained ground since these injuries started happening. I guess because some of the other owners are feeling the pain too.
