    And no one invited me, I just stumbled onto this.


    Have fun guys!


    Really?!?!?!?!?!?


    That's amazing that someone of your statue found our obscure little board.


    If only you had found us 10 years ago....


    Anyway, incredibly cool of you to go out of your way to try and help.

    All you have to do is Google your name once in awhile.

    As for roster-size: I don't have any opinion on that.


    This is my point Mr Tango.  If bullpen size is growing, why isn't rotation size shrinking?  Instead, it seems like when push comes to shove, teams will jump to a 6 man instead of a 4.  One has to wonder if a team loaded in pitching prospects might decide to go 7 man.  Each assigned his day of the week, with a day in the bullpen that splits the difference.  But I digress.  If the trend is more pitchers throwing less innings, then how many days rest does a starter going 5 IP and throwing 80 pitches really need.  I believe Craig Wright address this in great detail in Diamond Appraised.  To me, it seems like MLB only implemented half his suggestion.


    Thank you again for taking the time

    It's going to take time.  Yarbrough last year for example was brought in as a Headliner (first RP after TheOpener, usually Stanek):

    The less innings he pitched, the less days rest.  So it's going to be a learning process for everyone.
