care to post any resulting lineups/salaries?

I would like to see some samples from your league. For example how much did Arod go for, how much did an injury prone guy like Bonds or Thome go for and how much did up and comers go for?

I really think no cap is the way to do it because it makes it exactly like being an MLB owner. I do like the luxury tax idea though. That's a pretty good way to do it also. But, a cap would work because in essence it still makes for different salary teams, and different people paying different prices to be in the same league. I think that's the great part about it.
