Exactly.

16 teams increased to 18, then 20, then 24, 26, 28, and finally 30. 10-man pitching staffs increased to 11, then 11-12, and now 12-13. At certain points in April, with all those extra off days built into the schedule, some teams were carrying 9 relievers among their 13 pitchers and skipping the 5th spot in the rotation. There are about 200 pitchers in the majors today who would not have been here years ago.
