more players are getting paid so the average salary is going to be the the same.
teams still have the same budget.
the ultra-elite players (like Tulo, Pujols, Mcab, Halladay etc) may fetch slightly more than in standard 12 teamers, but thats just because there arent enough of them for every team to own one so there will bea premium. but that also means that there will be a discount on some lesser talents (maybe the 2nd tier guys go slightly cheaper, or maybe as Tavish suggested there will just be lots more $1 players picked up at the end of the auction that would normally go $2 or $3
