deaf - i think we need 25. if i can waive that rule i will though. i made no minimum requirements because it's a free country. but for crying out loud i hope everyone can field a decent team with enough PA & IP's.
The system will not allow waiver of that rule. 12 x 25 = 300 players needed. I counted 178 hitters and 84 pitchers for a total of 262 players so we will be 38 short.
2 teams will be 4 players short and 10 teams will be 3 players short. However, because we are using career numbers there will be plenty of IP and PA.
I have always covered player shortages like this by having owners draft $200k players from 2000-2012 and also allowing 6 average AAA position players and 4 average AAA pitchers. Those would only be used as fillers and could not be keepers for the following season.
