I think most of the true fantasy baseball fans (found here on this site, of course) would agree that the deeper the league, the better. By deeper, of course I mean a league requiring you to delve further into the actual baseball universe. The more teams, the more roster spots, the deeper the league becomes. It requires more knowledge than the average fan would have, and I have come to find the deeper the better. I hate seeing 8 stacked teams duke it out for the fantasy newbie crown.
Which I suppose brings me to the actual point of my post. I've joined a league with some of my good buddies. I was in a league with them last year. It is an AL-only 6X6 roto, probably my personal favorite league settings.
But it appears to me that the rosters are a bit TOO deep. 12 teams, and 30 roster spots per team. There is literally nothing on waivers. Don't get me wrong, I love the grind-it out style of roto that really separates the men from the boys, but our top free agent is Carlos Pena.
So my question is: too deep? Has this crossed the line to a bit ridiculous? Where would you draw the line? Any strategies on how to keep the league as competitive as possible?
Thanks for any input.
