Seriously though there's only 2 friggn' bench spots how many young guys that may or may not have a full time job can you roster before you're just packing it in hoping for next year before this one even starts.
I agree. I am surprised because none of these guys are likely to be on the opening day roster so how long are you willing to keep a guy on your bench. Part of the thinking probably goes into the fact that free agents pickups cost $10 so if they break surprise then you can keep that much longer.
I have never bought into the pay league thing. I think you can find leagues that people will try in regardless if money is involved or not. And some owners just like the prospect thing and they are going to draft youngsters anyway. It just might work out for them. In the end it leaves me with a better chance of getting the guys I want.
