Alright, things are getting good now. Thanks to both of you for taking the time to help me on this. I'm not gonna lie, I'm still struggling a little with this but I'm getting there. Please bear with me through a few more questions.
So now my settings would look like this:
Status Min Max
Active Players 5 17
Reserve Players 0 6
Injured Players 0 1
Minors Players 0 0
Total Players 0 24
Position Min Max Tot
Active C 0 1
Active 1B 0 1
Active 2B 0 1
Active 3B 0 1
Active SS 0 1
Active OF 0 3
Active U 0 2
Active SP 3 5
Active RP 2 4
Illegal rosters score zero
points in standings.
I changed the MIN active players to 5 since I require 3SP and 2RP and I deleted out the Position TOT numbers.
The point that's been made about the bench is interesting. Technically we have to start 3SP and 2RP and there are 17 potential active slots. Therefore should I be increasing my bench MAX by 12 to 18? How does this work in the draft? I only want 23 players drafted (17 active positional and 6 bench spots)
What about my 2 UT spots that can be filled with any offensive position? Technically those could be 2 first basemen so do I change my MAX +2 on all offensive positions? If I do that it makes my roster page look very strange.

Since everyone needs to have 1 catcher, 1 SS, 1 3B, 2 RP, 3 SP, etc, and there is a maximum of 23, it will mean that their only variables are the bench players.
Everyone doesn't necessarily NEED to have those players but those are the roster spots. Would it be easier of I just implement a MIN on each position?
Sorry for all the questions guys but this is our first year on CBS and I want to make sure everything runs smooth. This is the only aspect of CBS I haven't been able to get good info on. This is the most helpful info I've received so far.
