12 or 14, we're not sure yet and have a couple of 'I dunno, I suck at it's' and then one person who's mysteriously disappeared from our office 8-o . I'd like to have'em but well, you know, we've aquired a few friends of friends who have expressed a high level of interest and the people who you have to con into it now are the ones you have to harrass to respond negatively to trade offers in August so....see ya!!

If you guys haven't tried 20 teams, it's fantastic. It gives baseball nerds like us a real advantage because you've got to know the real scrubs. They have value when you draft 600 players overall.

Try it once and see if it isn't the best league you've ever played in.

12 teams.

Ideally, I (Commish) would like 16 in 4 divisions. But we have at least one owner drop out each year so I am loath to take the expansion plunge.

We also have 40-man rosters whichs makes it really interesting for obsessives to find value amongst the "no headline guys".

I play in a straight AL with 12 teams and a straight NL with 13 teams. I think those work about right for straight leagues. Anymore would be too watered down and any less would be too many players left. This way you have to know more about baseball and not just the stars.
You don't have to like 'em to own 'em!!!!
