How many do you bat in pool play when pool play seeds you into Gold Bracket or Silver Bracket? 

1) All 13 Players 

2) 9 With A DP/Flex 

3) Straight 9

That is a good question. I guess they answer is not a clear one. On one hand, you want to assure placement into the top tier bracket, on the other you want to make sure all 13 are invested into the process. You are only one injury away from needing one of those players. If they do not feel invested or prepared, you may be hurting your chances long term. It would also depend on the depth of the team. Most "Elite Level" teams should be at least 13 deep. Nine with a Flex/DP would seem like the most logical and allow the most opportunity for a coach to maximize his roster and hold players interest. You could always do a mid game sub as well. 

You're wrong! I touched second base. I missed third… but I touched second.
