Do your "real" leagues have positional player game limits?
I think regardless of whether you have minimums and/or maximums, you have to have a strategy to maximize value.
Eligibility requirements sure
Game limits? Like how many times a guy can be in your lineup? Abso####inglutely Not
Then it just devolves into a churn and burn through the waiver wire for pitchers and position players. It also crushes the value of players who get hurt, as crappy guys who play 160 games are worth more than a star who has a couple of DL stints
TU - I value your comment so please explain how game limits work.....what are roster limits?........what happens to a player if he reaches the limit on your team? does he thrown out? thrown back? Seems like you guys will have even more rules than most leagues to handle artifical limits
It's a position limit...you only get 162 games at 1B for example...You would stop accumulating stats for that position once the limit is reached...it does not affect who is on your roster...
This prevents waiver wire vulturing of players simply because of their schedule or whether they are playing today when your starter is off...
In a 5X5 where you have 3 counting stats categories on offense versus 2 rate categories, this skews value
It also "feels" more like real baseball, as you draft a team and then, for the most part, manage that roster, with injuries and sub par performance a part of in season mnagement...
Without limits you could turn your entire team over every day, which seems artificial, at least to me

Don't you see? The rest of the country looks upon New York like we're left-wing Communist, Jewish, homosexual, pornographers. I think of us that way, sometimes, and I live here.
