This is the Baseball Constitution we go by.
We set teams up in Yahoo, but keep up with our rosters on another site.
2 Leagues(NL and AL)
4 Divisions (AL West, AL East, NL West, NL East)
Minor League rosters will have no personell limit, but will have a special
salary cap stipulation, explained below.
The MLB will use a soft $100 cap, meaning that cash can be used in trade. However, at the end of each season a Salary Cap rollover will be implemented. The rollover works thusly:
Each season, all salary caps will be reverted back to the original cap of $100. If any given team(s) has traded for cap, giving them a salary cap above the original $100, they will recieve rollover.
Rollover= Half of total amount that exceeds $100 from
This means that if Team A trades for $6 from Team B, Team A will have a salary cap of $106 and Team B will have a cap of $94. At the end of the season, Team B's salary cap will revert back to the original $100 to begin the next season, and Team A's salary cap will be $103 to begin the next season:
$106(end of the year salar ycap)-$100(original salary cap)=$6; $6 divided by 2=$3; $3(rollover from previous season)+$100(original salary cap)=$103
There is no minor league roster limit and no minor league salary cap, however, there is a Minor Leauge Luxury Tax Limit. You may spend $37 in minor league money with no penalty, but for every 3 additional dollars spent over the $37, you will pay $1 of MLB salary.
The MLB draft will consist of 23 rounds. In order to determine the salay of drafted players, a scale based on actual MLB salaries will be used:
0-.49 Million = $1
.5-1 Million = $2
2-3 Million = $3
4-5 Million = $4
6-7 Million = $5
8-9 Million = $6
10-11 Million = $7
12-13 Million = $8
14-15 Million = $9
16-17 Million = $10
18-19 Million = $11
20+ Million = $12
If a player has a real MLB salary of $3,500,000, round up to make their salary $4. If a player has a real MLB salary of $3,499,999, round down to make their salary $3.

After the Draft you will get to assign your players contract lengths. You have a certain amount of Multiple Year deals to assign:

The Minor draft is 15 rounds and the salary scaling will be:
