Hey guys. Im a life long fantasy football player but this is my first year in fantasy baseball. Im in a standard ESPN league. Im curious, how does the scoring work? I've got a couple pitchers starting the year on the 15 day DL retro to March. Do i dump them? Does the bench players count? Damn im a noob :( Thx

As far as the scoring goes, it depends on what kind of league you are in. It could be H2H Each Category, H2H Most Categories, H2H Points, Total Season Points or Rotiserie. You would need to tell us what type of league you are in for info on the scoring. == No, the bench players don't count. They are your reserves just like in real baseball. When one of your starters does not have a game, you take a bench player and substitute him for the starter that is off. All leagues have a DL list to put your injured players on so you can pickup a replacment for him. Normally you only have two or three DL spots, so if you have more than that you would have to consider dropping a DL player of keeping him on the bench.
