Keep 'em! Expand 'em!
Yes to this!
(Especially the expand them part. I would also love to see more storylines where you as a GM/Manager- if you play the game that way- have to make a decision. Interactive storylines add to the fun.)

I do think though that the fact that I pretty much exclusively play fictional these days is a factor in my opinion here. Storylines can be a bit odd for historical players and in many cases we already have stories in our heads about those players and don't require the extra flavor.
But in my fictional league I can't imagine playing without storylines (even if they did cost me one of my favorite relief pitching prospects when he decided to join the NFL on the verge of developing into a big league bullpen force. )
