Salary Cap amount?

Here is an easier system. Do not bid on Minor Leaguers. Fifteen players, the first three rounds have a $5 salary, second three rounds a $4 salary. This continues until the final three rounds are $1 each. You can make up your own rules about when they have to be promoted to the MLB or they become a free agent.

Minor league players arent bid on, they are in a 15 rd non snake draft. each round has a set value like i stated in a previous post. but those amounts are their cap hits until they reach a 130AB, 50 IP rookie limit. once they reach that they HAVE to be called up if not already up.the following year, they will get a raise in salary relative to where they were ranked on Baseball America's top 100 at the beginning of the season that they reached the rookie limit in. the bidding system i described is only for free agent major leaguers.

We only draft the major-league slots (active + reserve). If you want a ML player that badly, you had to bid on him, and he's taking up a slot. After that, you can just acquire ML players into dedicated ML slots via FAAB. Their salary is always $1 and does not increase until they shed MLB rookie status.

Granted, this was on CBS, which let you enforce that kind of policy. Unfortunately, pretty much everything else about the CBS Commissioner product is terrible, including the cost.
