One thought on roster construction: The MLB is going to 26-man rosters next year. While this could, in theory, lead to some 14-pitcher rosters, it will probably mean anywhere from 6-to-10 extra hitters in both the AL and NL.  That should lessen a lot of the pressure that comes with carrying 14 hitters. By the way, the American Dreams League went to 10 pitchers about five years ago. And 10 pitchers have not in any discernible way affected pricing.
