Example. Pujols initial salary of $48 would then increase to $51 year 2 and then increase again to $56 for year 3.
Can you keep them a fourth year? or is three years the max?
Again, to me, balance is the most important thing in having a keeper league last long term.
They can continue to keep, but salary will jump $10 in 4th year
That sounds reasonable. Escalating the salary like that can help build that balance. I was worried lets say you got Heyward this year for $5 and he turns into a monster. If it was just $3 a year, you could keep him for a long time. But with escalating salaries, you build that balance.
My league works like many do with contracts and only one salary bump (based on how many years the contract is extended) but a max of 5 years keeping them.
Back to the original point. I stick by what I said. In the second year, you don't want to change the rules. Se how it goes for a while to see if the balance is maintained.
