I have a league I'm starting on Fantrax. I was planning on doing a live auction draft, but with the volume of people interested in a slow auction I am certainly flexible to go with that. I've never run a slow auction before, so if you guys are interested in this format perhaps one of you could give me some pointers on how best to conduct it (I imagine it will be fairly straightforward, but I'd like to make sure I cover all the bases). Really, after doing some thinking on it, I think a slow auction will probably be the best route for a league like this anyways.
This is a 16 team dynasty league with minors. Starting lineups are C,2-CI,2-MI,3-OF,3-UTIL,10-Pitchers with 10 bench spots and 5 IR spots to be used only for actually injured or suspended players. Its a 6x6 H2H with R,HR,RBI,BA,SB,OPS for offense and W+CG+Shutouts,K,ERA,WHIP,QS,2xSaves+Holds for pitching. A small thing, each category is worth 0.62 so that the total regular season games for each team adds up to appx. 162. This is a salary/contract league with a unique feature, you pay for your share of the league salaries. Whatever your % of the league salaries is, that will be your % of the total league buy-in, so you get to set what your buy-in is. Minor leaguers cost $1 each (league minimum salary) but you don't have to own any if you don't want to.
