Yes. We have a limit of 35 per year. That may be on the low side, 50 would be the absolute max I'd want.

Our limit is 20 for the year. Too low for my taste, as I'd prefer 40 or 50. Deep benches make it tolerable. However, a low limit is still much, much better than no limit. I hate streaming!

We use 60 as I figured that was about 2 per week. It works well enough. I think we've had people hit the limit twice over 5 years, but we've had more people than that who hit the ASB with 35 or 40 so had to slow down.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

MY league (h2h)uses a four move limit per week. It stops people from picking up a new pitcher everyday. I like it.

I've been in a variety of leagues like this. I'm currently in a league with a 50 Move Limit. I'm also in a league that charges $1 per Add, with no limit. I'm also in a H2H League with a limit of 2 Adds per week, but no total on the season. As long as you are accomplishing your goal, lots of different methods can work.

My league uses a max of 10 add/drops per season. It puts a lot of emphasis on the draft and really makes you think through every roster move you make.

Does anybody play in a league that doesn't have a move max?

Games/IP limits are far superior to moves limits. They stop streaming, but allow for teams to cycle through guys if nothing's sticking....

We have 3 moves a week and I really like it. Last year they put a cap of about 50 and people weren't able to make pickups towards the end of the season. With 3 per week it minimizes spot pitching and hitting a lot and makes you really think about your decisions. For instance I still have 2 acquisitions left for the week while almost everyone is maxed. There are some decent pitchers emerging and I now have a ton to pick from without having to worry until them getting taken before Monday.
