Help Us Change League To Salary Cap

Postby Sunspot » Wed Aug 01, 2007 3:46 pm

I am the Commish of a league that has been going for 6 years now. Up until now, we have not had values on players or caps on teams. We have a maximum amount of players on a team and 2 years ago we started allowing 15 keepers. You could keep any 15 off your roster. This cut down on amount of time it took to draft and let us build a little with our teams from year to year. We start 2 players at each infield position, 5 outfielders, 1 DH, 6 Starting pitchers and 3 Relief pitchers. Wealso have a bench of 8 players and 1 DL spot. We have recently voted to turn our league into a league where players are designated values and teams will then have a sallarie cap. We want to still have some keepers into next year. We use CBS Sportsline and they have a system for keeping track of these things, although I think I might have to punch in all of the sallaries (UGH!). I need some advice on what is the best way to transform our league for next year into this salaries and cap type league, without a redraft? What values do we use? What would be a fair Cap per team? Please help!!!!!

Its tough to arbitrarily assign $$$ like that.

Normally its done by what they were drafted at in an auction.

Otherwise you need to pick a website, use its projections and determine $$$ for everyone prior to the start of the season. You could also set an arbitrary dollar value based on what round they were drafted in. Whichever website you pick, or method you choose is sure to favor certain people and hurt others though.

Agree on the year end salary for the keeper using a site like this:
