We are a mixed roto league entering our 4th season and looking to expand the number of teams.
We run an auction each spring and players acquired can be assigned a contract up to 4 years to keep them on your team. Not to worry if you are a new team; there will be an expansion draft for new teams to acquire players from the existing teams, and plenty of star players are currently unowned and available for auction including Pujols, Hanley, Utley, A-Rod, etc.
We use 5x5 roto scoring with a few different categories; replacing BA with OBP and HR with Total Bases. On the pitching side we replaced Wins with Quality Starts, and added Holds to increase the value of middle relievers and setup men. 25 man active roster, with 15 player reserve roster, which can be comprised of bench players and minor leaguers.
In the past we ran a live auction in person, but this year we will be doing it online with CBS Sportsline. $50 league fee goes towards the prize pool (100% payout, number of places determined by number of teams), plus the CBS fee split evenly amongst all the teams (about $15, again depending on the number of teams). Any questions please ask.
