Whether you’re new to Ottoneu or a crusty veteran you should join the Ottoneu community on Slack. Wisdom from the crowds can be valuable, and from time to time we’ll repost some of our more popular Slack community discussions here on Ottoneu Trade Rumors to carry on the conversation and reference them in the future.
The Slack community recently debated Ottoneu rule 1a, and more specifically how to enforce it.
For reference, here’s rule 1a:
“Each team should maintain at all times a roster of 22 major-league players that can fill out a starting lineup. The remaining 18 roster spots can be used for reserves, consisting of both major and minor leaguers.”
While the rule seems crystal clear, the proper enforcement of it is not, which was up for much debate on Slack.
- How (and when) should Ottoneu commissioners enforce this rule?
- What is the impact of that enforcement upon teams preparing to retool or rebuild?
- Do teams need more than 18 roster spots to rebuild effectively?
- Would a games played and innings pitched minimum be a more effective method of accomplishing the same activity level?
