keeper auction leagues

how do you guys keep players? same salaries or forced raises?

if you play in a contract league where you give a player a salary for a certain number of years, just ignore this thread. i am only concerned with leagues that have a normal auction draft, then get to keep a certain number of players.

There are many, many ways to do auction keepers. I didn't vote in the poll because our way of doing it isn't there. Ours works as follows:

  • combo of contract and salary increases
  • at auction, you get a player for $X, that is his salary for this and next year if you keep him.
  • Third year out, owner has to decide. Keep him one more year (his option year) at the same salary and then return him to the auction, or sign him for a "long term contract" of 2 years (increase salary by $10) or sign him for 3 years (increase salary by $15)
  • So, most you can keep a guy is 5 years
  • lots of other rules about how FAs/minor league guys get salaries, restrictions/penalties on long term contacts, etc.

thank you for not voting. i am very aware of leagues that work this way, and i did not want to muddy up the results, with contract rules.
