I've gone with less than 25 before as well. But going with 19 or 20 will be an issue before game 20, I'm almost positive. And yea, if I'm in that league, I'm not happy if/when he's losing games because the 3rd reliever he throws out there from games 10-20 is fatigued.
EDIT: On second thought, If you're an AL team, you can probably get away with it if you only have 9 or 10 hitters. But again, I'm uncomfortable with it if it's obviously affecting team performance.
