I share a similar philosophy. I'm in 3 leagues this year. In one league, I currently carry no bench bats, but I had only one for most of the season. In another league, which I don't pay too much attention to beyond starting my pitchers, I carry no bench bats so I don't have to spend extra time playing match-ups. Finally, in a weekly league I'm in, I carry a few positional bats and spare bench bats, but that's really just to plug in injured players/cold streaks, AND because of the fact that it's weekly, there's not much sense having too deep of a pitching staff either. Even still, I only carry 2 bench bats in that league.
