CBS Baseball Commissioner- Where's Auction option?

Postby thebleachercreatures » Wed Jan 14, 2009 9:23 pm

I don't see where you can select the auction option. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

When selecting draft (online, offline, 1 day, multiple days) there is no option for auction.

However, on the right side its says the following by the Light Bulb that gives you tips

Prior to completing any player transactions, your league's rosters must first be filled. This can be done in the following ways:

On-line Draft
Teams take turns selecting players, either in one day while everyone in your league is on-line, or over a period of several days using an extended draft.

Automated Draft
Each team will rank players, then players will be assigned to rosters on draft day using an automated draft process.

Off-Line Draft
Enter your off-line draft results, or simply decide which players belong on which team.

Auction Draft
Teams put players up on the auction block with an opening bid. Once a player has been won, the winning bid is subtracted from the winning team's salary cap. You may view a demonstration of the auction room.

I emailed customer service about this today. They said the auction features (and some new ones) will be added at the start of next month.

I think the early bird price on Fantasy Commissioner runs out when it runs out. If you sign up for a league now, you get the early bird price, and you can change your draft to the auction format in a few weeks. At least that's how it was explained to me.

Last year on CBS I ran a Draft League and an Auction League. We did both player selections offline and I just added the players later. Both were the same except I had to add the salaries and contracts to the Auction League.

Does everyone have to pay to use CBS or just the commish fee? Also does anyone know if there is a dynasty league option, in other words, keep the players you bid on for multiple years?

If you want to play for free, the options are pretty limited. Read all about it. http://baseball.cbssports.com/splash/baseball/spln/single/free?source=mktg_FBBF09_SPOETh&refcode=FBBF09_SPOETh

Its just the one fee for the entire league. CBS has keeper functionality and allows you to tract salaries, contract, etc
