Keeper League contract question

Postby Steamer » Sun Dec 30, 2007 4:29 pm

What is the common amount used to raise a player's salary for each year of the contract? $5 per year?

we are a 3 yr cycle league so that the only time the contract extension comes into play is after the first year and yes it is $5..there is a 60% penalty IF that team waives the player before the 3rd season begins

Thanks. For some reason I thought I had read $3 in the Benson rules last year. I guess I was wrong. I'm currently looking for options on penalties as well.

Our league is a little different then most, but here goes
A player from $1-$4 automatically goes to $5
A player from $5-$9 automatically goes to $10
And from $10 up you take the number in the "tens" place and add it to the original contract so,
$10 would be $11, $25 would be $27, $49 would be $53 and on up (just as a few examples)

In my 5x5 keeper roto league, we have a max increase of $5 per player, per season.

In our winter meetings before the first season, we set limits on every statistical category with minimum numbers in non-counting stats like BA and ERA/WHIP. I think in four years, we have agreed to change these arbitrary baselines only one time, and it was a very minimal change. Its not a truly traditional way of doing the increases, but it seems to work great in my experience.

The league I run has 3 year contracts. You can keep the player forever BUT you can only keep him at his drafted price the first 3, then the 4th year they go a new 3 year contract based off of an objective performance and ranking review. There are minor increases in those 3 years just to give some escalation/inflation but nothing drastic.

We don't have contracts and have a $280 budget for 29 players so adjust for your own salaries, but we do the following...

Year 1 salary goes up $3;
Year 2 salary goes $5 (so $8 cumulatively);
Years 3 and beyond salary goes up $10 additional.

So you can keep a player as long as you like. And if you draft an Albert Pujols early in his career you can reasonably keep him for 4-5 years or longer if you want. You just have to keep pay the increasing salary.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
