I have Weaver, Cueto and Jeter on the DL right now.
Sure, I knew there was a risk with Jeter, but he'll be a great addition for one of the generic IF spots this summer.
But...we only have two allowed DL slots in our league. I've complained to the commish (who has been running this league since 2001) and he wasn't interested in changing things.
What's the standard argument for having such a small DL list?
I think one slot is standard at ESPN. I know the old-school way is to be very limited in DL slots and roster movement at all. I think the reasoning is that your draft is what makes your team, and you should be judged on that, not just picking up different players through the year. But I agree, I like having flexibility. In all the leagues I'm in we have at least 3 DL slots.
That said, I'd drop Jeter most likely. How big is the league? In a 10 team mixed, he would be replaceable and I don't think he'll have a very good year. In a 12 team league it's closer... maybe just hold onto him on your bench.
