This is a re-post of a question I asked in the Bench Coach forum. It was suggested that since this question is more about theory than practice (i.e. my personal lineup), I ask it here instead.

I like having a backup for each position, but I suppose they are somewhat wasted as long as the main player is starting. Is it good to have this, or is it better to stack up on pitchers?

I just don't like having empty roster spots on a day a batter isn't playing.

As this question pertains to a team-specific strategy, it is BC material.
