Discussion Question: Ideal Size of Baseball Rosters

New, 36 comments

Here is a discussion question for a Sunday afternoon.

If I became Dictator of Major League Baseball, rosters would be increased to 26 men, but no more than 12 of them could be pitchers. I'm annoyed by these gigantic pitching staffs, and I'd like to see bigger benches. This would increase tactical options for managers, lead to more platooning, and open up more major league jobs for players who could be useful but are trapped in Triple-A.

What do you guys think? Would you support my roster edict? Do you like the current roster sizes, and if not,how would you change them?
