Best method for keeper inflation?

Postby Guest » Mon Feb 23, 2004 3:54 pm

Trying to set up some rules and was wondering the best way to set inflation rates on keepers.

Do any of you like to add a flat rate each year or would you prefer a percent increase(say 10% each year)?
Looking for pros and cons of each before i decide.

Thanks

Well, I guess it depends on how much you want to reward guys who get great keeper bargains.
Like, say I got Pujols three years ago at $1 in a draft.
Option A: Salary increases 10% per year, rounded up.
Year 1: $1
Year 2: $2
Year 3: $3
Year 4: $4
...
Year 12: $14
So basically I've locked away a $40 stud for 12 years at less than 1/4 his value per year.

Option B: $5 increase for each year after two
Year 1: $1
Year 2: $1
Year 3: $6
Year 4: $11
Year 5: $16
...

I like the idea of giving salary extensions during the third year of contracts. The league I'm in requires you to spend $5 per year that you want to extend a contract. So if, after two years, Pujols is so good that someone wants to extend him another 4 seasons, it will cost like this:
Year 1+2: $1 each
Years 3-7: $21 each
Buyout for each year you want to remove from a contract: $10. This way closers don't get extended unreasonably, since they generally don't keep jobs longer than 3-4 years in the best case.
Another Year, Another Championship. I'm 2 for 2.

We add $3 per year kept....which still if you get Blalock like I did, you still probably have him 7-8 years easily w/o considering throwing back into the pool

Thanks for the bump...

I didn't know there was a formula. I thought it was just preference. I would be curious if there is a solid way to go about it.
