14 Day Roster Rule and Playoffs

I think this rule should be suspended during the playoffs. If we are not allowed to expand the playoff roster we should at least have a little more flexibility.

For instance, I am about to play in the Wild Card game. Why would I want 5 Starting Pitchers on my roster? I should be able to carry one or two for this round so I can add more bench players and relievers and then bring back the starters if I advance to the DS.

There is plenty of flexibility already. If you carry 10 pitchers and 15 position players you will have 6 available on the bench. How many do you think you need?

Who knows, the point is that why should I have to carry 3-4 completely useless players on my team for a round of the playoffs? There┤s a reason that not a single actual MLB team carries five starters for the Wild Card game. The Yankees had three backup catchers this year. And it┤s not just for injury. It gives the in game manager more flexibility and there is literally ZERO reason to have 5 starting pitchers for a one game playoff series.

Why don┤t my rosters just reset after each round of the playoffs?

I set my team to a three man rotation for the playoffs. I'm using my other 2 starters as relievers for the duration. It's kind of nice, you know, when you get to the 14th inning and can slip a starter in without fear. They're scrambling to make defensive subs (which tend to be sh***y hitters) and I'm bringing my fresh #4 starter in to mow 'em down? Yeah...baby. Also avoids the prospect of having Lee Smith out their for 3+ innings, 'cause when Lee gets tired, you can imagine Ernie Harrell saying, "There's a looooooonnnnng drive, way back, GONE!!!"

IRL a team would ship out its two worst pitchers and give themselves more versatility.

But why do you need a removal of the 14 day rule to do that? Just send the pitchers down. You're not going to need those guys again as long as you're in playoff mode, right?

I get it. I brought up a replacement starter near season end and had to demote utility speed OF. Now that speed pinch runner will not be available for the playoffs.

Well, I would obviously want to set up my team differently for a single game WC playoff than I would for a 5 game series or a 7 game series no?

It just will never make sense to me that I have to have 4 SP on my team for a wild card game just in case I win and have to play a 5 game series next.
