In my league we are allowed to get guys off waivers, but we use are salary cap money for waiver claims, trades, and minor league call-ups. So we allotted and additional $40 to the salary $320 for auction and now $360 for in season cap.
Our current process for free agents is for teams to email me (commish) their free agent bids, but again this can create some confusion and work when I have the same bid on a player and have to inform other team that we have put up a bid on the same player. No this is where it could get ugly with some owners, another team and I both put bids on Volquez $5 me and $1 other team. I let the other owner know that I was bidding $5 for Volquez and that he would lose out. Well owner suggests he will pay $6 for him and insist I will pay $6. As you see this could go back and forth, or a simple ploy to get owners to run up prices.
ESPN runs their FAAB ideal for me, but owners are entrenched at yahoo and we are to far along to move. Could the cafe please help me! Thanks

- As commish, you can set and adjust the FAAB balance for each team individually. So if you wanted to start teams off with a different budget based on your auction results/balances, you could do so.
- Our FAAB process does only apply to waiver claims. If you want to somehow bid on free agents, that is something we don't support.
