How do people handle it if a manager wants to bench a player (bad matchups, slumping)? The Commissioner product seems completely brain-dead regarding minor-league and DL spots. They require a "team total", which makes sense, but that number needs to cover your DL and minor league spots as well.
Active Roster- 0/21 (min/max)
Reserve Roster- 0/2
Minors - 0/2
DL - 0/2
Team Total: 27
Assume everyone has a full Active + Reserve. In this setup, I can't bench a player unless I've got a Reserve guy I can put in that slot, or I drop a Reserve guy. I can only have 2.
If I increase the Reserve max (for argument's sake, let's say to 5), I can keep the Team Total at 27- so far, so good.
But if I am not carrying a full Minors Roster and DL, I have 23 players. CBS thinks- Great! You've got 3 empty Reserve slots, and you're under the Team Total! Acquire away! Basically, I can carry more active players.
do people handle this? It's basic behavior on Yahoo and ESPN. CBS support acts like I'm from Mars when I ask them about it.
