1.1. There will be 10 teams in the Kombustible Keeper League consisting of Each team will consist of 22 players

1.2. A team's roster consists of the following players:

* 3 outfielders
* 1 catchers
* 1 second baseman
* 1 shortstop
* 1 first baseman
* 1 third baseman
* 2 utility player (non-pitcher who can be any offensive player)
* 7 pitchers (3 Starters, 2 Relievers, 2 Pitchers)


2.1. Each team must acquire 22 players at a total cost not to exceed $260. A team need not spend the maximum.

2.2. Teams will nominate players for acquisition in random order.

2.3. The following players are eligible for the major league auction:

* Any players who are on a major league 40-man roster and are still with the major league club at the time of the auction
* Any players who are not on a major league 40-man roster but are projected to start the season on the major league squad and can be confirmed by at least half of the owners present.

2.4. The team bidding first opens with a salary bid of at least $1 for any eligible player and the bidding proceeds at minimum increments of $1 until only one bidder is left. That team acquires the nominated player for the final bid amount. The process is repeated, with successive owners nominating players to be bid on.

2.5. No team may make a bid for a player it cannot afford. For example, a team with $3 left and two openings on its roster is limited to a maximum bid of $2 for one player. (Leaving $1 for the other unfilled roster spot.)

2.6. The salary of a player acquired in the major league auction is his final bid amount.


3.1. A player may be assigned to any position at which he appeared in 20 or more games in the preceding season. If a player did not appear in 20 games at a single position, he may be drafted only at the position(s) at which he appeared most frequently.

5.5. At any point in the season an owner may not be over $300 worth of player, i.e. through trades, waivers, free agency. If this happens the owner will have to reverse whatever action completed to put him over $300.

7.2. Teams are ranked from first to last in each of the twelve categories, and given points for each place. For example, in a fifteen-team league, the first-place team in a category receives fifteen points, the second-place team fourteen, and so on down to one point for last place. The team with the most total points wins the pennant.

7.3. In case of ties in total points, each team involved in the tie is compared to all other teams involved in the tie in each individual category.

9.4. After the 7-day waiver period has passed, if the player has not been claimed, he immediately becomes a free agent and is available to all teams.

Is the reserve roster going to be filled by a snake draft after the auction? How will they be treated if the are "kept" for next year?
