I'm starting a new fantasy keeper league, H2H 10 teams, with a few of my buddies, and I'm using fleaflicker as my host site. Curious if anyone has used this site before for baseball? Is that roster TOO deep for a 10 team league? If so should I shrink the number of SP and RP and just make it a total of 5-7 P instead?
Any suggestions on how to make this better would be great, thanks for any input.
Hitting Rule Apply To 1 point for every Run 1 point for every Hit 1 point for every Home Run 1 point for every Stolen Base 1 point for every Run Batted In
Pitching 5 points for every Win -5 points for every Loss 3 points for every Save -1 point for every Earned Run 1 point for every Strike Out
I know you didn't ask about scoring but I thought I would share this with you. Honestly, I don't remember where I found this but it works for us (some site did a "study" of the most fair h2h scoring). Very little value for middle relievers so we have considered adding holds for a very small point value (like 2 pts).
In my 18 team league we go 432 players deep, so to me 300 is not deep enough. It devalues the draft and encourages streaming of two start pitchers in a weekly h2h league.
I don't think I have every been on fleaflickers site.
Batters Stat Category Value Runs (R) 1 Singles (1B) 1 Doubles (2B) 2 Triples (3B) 3 Home Runs (HR) 4 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 2 Caught Stealing (CS) -1 Walks (BB) 1 Intentional Walks (IBB) 1 Hit By Pitch (HBP) 1 Strikeouts (K) -.5
We use 348 players in our NL-Only (out of 400 total). I would find 300 in a mix league (out of 750 possible players) a bit boring. Just a bunch of all-star teams which takes alot of skill and strategy out of the game. We use 2C,1b,2b,3b,ss,mi,ci,5of, Utility, 9p and 6 reserves. Using the 5 extra positions takes up 50 more players, effectively almost two other teams.
Your current roster settings are shallow, no doubt. Your reserves number is good though,IMO

I wouldn't say 300 players is "shallow"... thats deeper than standard leagues on Yahoo or ESPN and such. Its not a "deep" league but I'd say its average.
If you want to go a bit deeper than why not just go to 12 teams. I don't like massive rosters in fantasy... I'd rather have more teams.
There are 750 MLB players at any given time. If you only have 300 in a Fantasy League, you have to consider it VERY SHALLOW. Like it was said above, all of the players will be All-Stars. It takes no skill to play in that kind of league. Why even worry about guys coming up from the Minors. There are better players in the FA pool.

Did a little research and your current active roster configuration is typical of h2h and the one I posted above for roto. I have never played h2h, so I don't know if extended rosters will mess up scoring. Maybe someone can help with that.
I have played both mix and league specific leagues and just find the league specific to be more fun for relieving alot of the problems discussed here. From what I can see, mixed leagues "require" 18 teams. I see it is you and your buddies. Do you guys follow the same team(s)/league? Going NL or AL only may be an answer. But I am biased of course:)
