I don't recall reading or hearing anything during streams, but did the Devs address why we don't get 26 man rosters in DD? With the new rule that we have to pitch to 3 batters minimum, I've felt like it could make a big difference.
Having an extra reliever would allow me to be comfortable if I had to possibly burn two relievers in an inning to get the right matchup. It would also help if we had a long game and burned up our pen.
On the flip side, having the extra bat on the bench throws out another platoon option, speed or defense only guy, or maybe adding another catcher if you don't like carrying two with only a five man bench.
Anyone hear an actual reason on this?
