Add option for 0% FA Drop Penalty

Please consider adding 0% as an option for FA Drop Penalty. Part of the fun of standard fantasy baseball is changing your roster throughout the season. However in the current online Strat, dropping players comes at a cost and many experienced managers therefore build their teams and then just watch the season play out. It would be a lot more exciting with the option to freely change your team throughout the season.

Be careful what you ask for! Particularly in leagues with deep player pools, this could prove to be a nightmare, a micromanaging fiasco. Facing three right-handed starters? No problem, just load up your lineup with left-handed hitters. But wait; the opposing manager now swaps out his starters for left-handers, only to be countered later by...

It would be like having (and facing) a 300-player roster.

No thanks!

I could also see a manager swapping out say the 2R Musial and the 2L Musial depending on opponent and ballpark.
Another would be Sandberg 5R card and either the 2L or 4L cards.

But I see your point. I would recommend instead of a % drop penalty simply have a set fee. Say 0.5 per player dropped. This would allow for the absolute minimum drop penalty and would lessen the pain of dropping an expensive player who is performing terribly.

It could be added as an option, then let the users figure out the plusses and minuses. If it has flaws, then nobody uses it. But why not add it as an option?
