God the Cardinals defense is so bad. I haven't seen a single defensive gem in the 9th all season. Get some better sunglasses out there guys. 

 

Oh gets the 2 men on, save. Good work buddy.

IN what leagues was Familia not stashed away?  Pick him up for free?  Yeah, sure, in your dreams.

 

He was dropped in 2 of my 3 leagues (12 team leagues). Unless you play in leagues with huge DLs I don't see how you play through all the injuries this year and stash a mid level closer that was quite possibly out all year with major surgery.

Out of 11 Yahoo leagues in 7, he is just sitting on the wire. 2 of the leagues where he is still rostered one is a dynasty and the other is a keep 25

I dropped him in my most competitive league for closers and just grabbed him back yesterday.  DL slots are at a premium, bud -- I can understand why nobody wanted to use a slot for him after how awful he was and how bad his prognosis was.

With the new 10 day DL rule and so many high priority players going on the DL, it is hard to stash guys like Familia unless you have a plethora of DL slots. He was FA in half of my leagues, the half he was available only had 2 DL slots per team.

Why only two?  Yahoo allows 5 DL slots in any non-public league.  You must get your commish to change the settings next year.  Because like you say there are tons more players being DL'ed because of the change to the 10 days. 

No way can you play fantasy baseball anymore with just two DL slots.  Yahoo should raise the number to 10 quite frankly since they raised the NA slots to that late this spring right before opening day.  Because there is no reason why DL slots should be limited.  They aren't in real baseball after all.  MLB teams aren't forced to play with anything but a full roster.  In my leagues there is always overflow DL players clogging up the active roster bench on almost every single team.

I agree with you about 2 DL slots being insufficient, but league-shaming is a bad look.  People play in different formats, for a variety of different reasons.   The 10 day DL is new this year, and a lot of people didn't want to add slots mid-season because it doesn't benefit everyone evenly.  And 2 DL slots is the default for free public leagues on several providers.

So long as everyone has the same amount, I don't think it matters much. I'd venture to guess the vast majority of leagues have one and maybe two. 

Anything that makes the waiver wire more interesting is a good thing to me. So I don't mind the 10 day DL at all.

They were 2 going into the season because 2 was acceptable in many league formats prior to 10 day DL rules. We are changing them for future years, we don't change rules mid-season.

That's why I said next year in my post.  No one can change settings like this mid-year even if they wanted to.  Glad your league will be changing it next year.

Why not just make it 20DL spots per team?  that way you can stash every good player who is hurt and show everybody how smart you are at fantasy baseball.  you people are ridiculous, 2 DL spots is plenty

Out of my 12 12-man leagues he's available in 8...not everyone has the luxury of stashing 30 DL players....

Why so angry? Teams shouldn't be penalized by injuries to star players, especially in keeper leagues where dropping players is a lot tougher to do than in re-draft.

I've been able to survive with 2 DL spots in all my leagues.   I've requested upping it to 3 next year.  I think 3 is perfectly fine.  I wouldn't allow more than 4
