    You come to The Inmates for a Catcher, a 1B and a CF . (No, seriously, I have enough for both of us.)
    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who get binary and those who don't.

          I'm pretty sure anyone with less than 50 is relegated to injury replacement, and anyone with less than 100 but more than 50 can be a September call-up

            close - since we are allowed to keep all of our players active there are no september callups. anyone with les than 100 cannot be assigned a slot in a rotation or lineup, but can be assigned as an injury replacement (backup with no percentage playing time.)

            Since we run 10 game sims we decidd that this would be he best course of action and actually makes managing usage a lot easier.

              I don't know what figures Rich is using but at 130% usage I am estimating 500-550 RL PA's to cover each position depending on where a hitter bats in the lineup. For me pitching is a little tougher to guesstimate. With 156 games and assuming 9 IP per game that would be 1,404 IP. After you adjust for the 130% usage you come up needing 1,080 RL IP. But I think the difficulty with pitchers is you need bodies too. Theoretically you could cover a season with just McGinnity (434), Mathewson (366) and Pittinger (351) but I don't know if that passes the test or not; especially if anyone would get injured.

              Without doubling up on anyone I think I can put a body on the field for every position. But with up to a 35 man roster, some teams could really get squeezed if teams with considerably larger rosters outbid those with smaller rosters and buy those PA/IP during free agency.

                What I want is owners to be responsible in assembling their rosters and not hoarding players at one position to the detriment of another. I have even considered placing a limit on the number of pitchers that teams can have on their rosters. also I have wondered if we should place a limit on the number of free agents a team may sign during the course of a season.

                To answer your question though more specifically - each eam should make an effort to have at least 500 plate appearances per position (based on 130% usage) This should take into account players who can play a position even if they are not necessarily rated there this season. I don't plan on being a roster policeman regarding this, but I believe strongly that we owe it to each other to be thoughtful and responsible in assembling our rosters. , while putting the same type of thought into fielding a team that a real-life owner would have to.

                  Wait, when did this happen? I'm pretty sure last offseason, I was acquiring people based on someone telling me that players from 50-100 PA could be called up at the end of the season (and that's what I had remembered it as being as well).

                              Minimum playing time limit: Players with less than 50 PA or BF in real life for the particlar season being played will be eligible only as replacements for a player at their position who goes on the DL. Players with less than 100 PA or BF will be eligible only as injury replacements and as September call ups. This will apply to each season going forward. Players with less than 100 PA/BF will not be eligible for the postseason under any circumstances.
                              See? I'm not crazy...
