I reckon it's about time to bring this up as we're more or less halfway through the season. Are we still thinking that we want further roster expansion entering 2013 as we'd talked about last year? I know we had pretty much decided that once we jumped that we'd make a few piece-wise moves, and after adding a UT, P and BN last year I am thinking that to keep in the theme of that move that maybe we add something like and extra OF, MI and CI or something? Then we could round things out by adding a final OF, P and BN spot in the following season?
Not sure how everyone feels about this, and this is just the initial push to get the conversation started, but I think it makes sense to continue down this road what with it being a dynasty and all - I'd be fine with keeping benches a bit "shallow" if people still want a bit of an FA pool from which to choose, but I also think that getting deeper might mitigate some of the need/effectiveness of the streaming-like moves that are reviled by some in the league. So, without further ado ... discuss ...
My preference would be to add more position spots and no more bench spots, and _two_ more pitching slots for this next season if part of the intention is to prevent excessive streaming and to keep the benches from being too deep. If it isn't as easy to bench a prospect you'd like to stash, but has exceeded farm-eligibility, then you're less likely to stash them, keeping the FA pool a little more interesting.
So, for 2013, my preference would be to add P, P, UT, but I'd also settle for adding UT, P, BN.
