Re: Redszone Dynasty League - Discussion Thread
Final Results of DL Slot Survey
Well the results are in. Everybody in the league voted. Hopefully this will allow us to come to a friendly consensus.
The votes ranged from 2 DL slots all the way up to unlimited DL slots.
2 - nate
2 - TRF's debacle
2 - The Basecloggers
2 - redsfandan
2 - mbgrayson
3 - CRF2000 ("at least 3 DL spots")
3 - Gilpdawg ("2-4 spots")
3 - stephenk29
4 - Atomic Dumpling
4 - WMR Ghetty Green
4 - reds77
Unlimited - camisadelgolf
Average = 3.0
I grouped the votes into three groups:
2 Slots ---- 5 votes
3 Slots ---- 3 votes
4+ Slots -- 4 votes
The results show that everyone agrees we need more than one DL slot, which is what we have now. Some people feel just one additional slot is needed, some feel that is not nearly enough.
I am democratically ruling in favor of 3 slots because that is right in the middle of all the votes. Almost everybody voted within plus or minus one slot of the final decision, so hopefully we can all agree to meet in the middle at 3 DL Slots.
We will try that configuration next season. We might possibly revisit the issue again late next season after we see the results of the rule change.
Incidentally there are 35 players on our rosters that are on the MLB DL, which comes out to 3 per team on average. One team has 0, two teams have 2, six teams have 3, two teams have 4, and one team has 5. If we had the 3 DL slot rule in effect right now we would have 31 players on the league DL. The other four would not be eligible because of the team limit of 3 players on the DL.
Now we can move on to the next issue, which will be roster size. It has been suggested that we increase the roster size to allow for holding some more prospects. I will create another post with more information. The DL slot increase may affect your opinion on the roster size.
