I also use opening day rosters. Rotoman and I once had a great debate about this in one of these forums.

Very good question. One that Rotoman and I have argued about for years. He uses the wider universe, I use the opening day rosters.

This is more of a formulas questions, but we don't have a player name for that so I thought I'd use PCL instead.

When you are computing your 4x4 and 5x5 formulas do you use the stats of the opening day roster players to figure out the best universe of players that could have been bought or do you use the wider universe of all players who played in a given season.

Crap, you are right Keith - you do have Melancon. Somehow, I don't think that makes you feel better.

Toz dumped and a lot of the Astros in our league were cheap or freebies. Easy answer.

Toz also has Paredes...a guy he out FAAB'd me for in our home NL league.

Yet another Astros player (along with JD Martinez) that contributed with little investment.

I have Carlos Lee at $19 and Bud Norris at $4 in the PCL. Probably going to keep them both next year.

I wouldn't want to do anything to change roster size, to me 14/9 and $260 is a sacrament. (all hail the mighty Okrent). I might be open to making the 2nd catcher spot a 2nd utility spot, but even that seems like cheating.

Jeez, forgot all about Norris. (He and Bourgeois are $15 from the first round of our reserve draft, hard to see keeping either given the rest of my roster.) But, see, there are Astros who are valuable . . .

Wait a second Toz...I have Melancon! And at a $1! You traded him to me for Carlos Lee (I think).

That said, you still have too many Astros. :)

I have Norris, Lyles, Melancon, Johnson, Wallace and someone else of little consequence.
