How about a rule that every team must have at least 1 Pittsburgh Pirate player on the roster?

And this proposed rule does NOT benefit yours truly, since I currently have no Pirate on my roster and will have no Pirates as keepers at the end of the year.

Sounds like a fun/frustrating idea. I don't have a quality Bucco either right now so I have no bias, it would elevate the value of the better Buccos. 12 team league means half the MLB roster would be owned, prolly about 6 bats, 4 SP, 2 RP.

Would basically just shorten the bench of about 6-7 teams, as anyone other than the top buccos would never crack a fantasy lineup.

True, true.

However, a smart owner would nab Doumit, knowing that he would give minimal production before having the decency of going on the DL. :D

Perhaps the saddest statement about out team ever. The best fantasy production they can give you is to go on the DL.

So essentially your saying that those teams with the deserving Pirates on their team still have 25 guys but those who don't will be forced to lose a player for someone that won't help them. It's like only having 24 guys. Not a vote for that idea unless someone gives me Cutch.

We have just 12 teams. I can think of 12 Pirates who are worth putting on a fantasy team:

1. Presley
2. Tabata
3. Walker
4. McCutchen
5. Alvarez (keeper league, gents, keeper league ...)
6. Morton
7. Karstens
8. McDonald
9. Hanrahan
10. Doumit
11. Veras
12. Resop

Doumit plays only if a team's starting C is injured. Veras and Resop are added for their K's, WHIP, ERA. Most of our teams have one or two pitchers whose primary contributions are in those areas.

The first 9 on your list are on teams now and at least 7 of them are keepers. So, back to what I said before about having only 24 guys

Veras is a FA now so Bucfan -- take him.
