- GBL rosters will remain at 22 players for the 2010 season. However, after August 15th rosters will expand to 25 players. This means that the trading frenzy will start a few days earlier next year as playoff-bound team will cherry pick the best players from the teams that are out of playoff contention. However, managers will have a hard time pinch-hitting for pitchers when they are restricted to a 22-man roster. You can expect to see decent-hitting pitchers pinch hitting for weaker-hitting pitchers when a GBL team is behind in the mid-to-late innings.
- The league will be making further announcements about 2010 teams in January. No surprise here. See the previous blog post for details. However, given the uncertainty, I'd be surprised if a regular-season schedule was published before the beginning of February.
