I agree with Andy; 10 teams this season and think about adding a new one in the future.

the Riptorns' roster and have the new player start
from scratch, as we did with Jim B. and the Brats.

Also, my preference (though not strong) is to only add
one new player this year. If he seems to enjoy our
unique culture, then we can look for an 11th team in
the future.
