Yup, Thanks for that tidbit of information.

Though to state the obvious, you do need to add something in that adds to the $ value. Otherwise, people will be spending $1 on rookies who are not even up. Imagine someone knowing about Pujols before he started his major league career and deciding to take a chance on him. Spending $1 on some guy nobody else knows about. Fast forward to today, Pujols is $1 and pretty much the top hitter in the game.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

This looks like a great thread to hijack for a different question...

If you're in an auction-keeper league (or you just want to say how you would do things if you were), How do you run your auction? I've been in my current league for 4 years, and at the start of last season we decided to try things as a keeper league. So we're comming up on our first auction with keepers...

We decided after much debate that you could keep as may players as you can afford to keep and that player salaries increase $4 from the previous season. We decided that we would wait at least a year before adding contracts and things of that nature.

How do you do things?
