Each Owner gets $500 to start the year. The players do not have salary assigned to them. The FAAB money is just a method to see who wins the player. When your money is gone, you can't pickup any more players. It makes for exciting play. We have a rule that you can't pickup players until they are on a MLB 25 man roster. When a rookie is called up, it makes for some good bidding.
Yea, this is the exact system that I had in mind. What I like about using money for each FA you pick up is that you can start your bid at $0. But the intrigue of someone else also making the move makes you think twice and spend more than you have to. I guess we'll just have to see if Yahoo can up the ante this year.
