I'm trying to get a 16 team dynasty with salaries and contracts started on Fantrax. This is an idea I've been working on for a couple of years now and I finally decided that this is the year to get it going. This is a pay league and the basic idea behind it is to allow owners to run their teams like real MLB GMs (or owners) do. The way we accomplish this is to base everyone's buy-in amount on their team salaries. So, everyone's team payrolls are calculated as a % of the total league payroll and then your buy-in is that % of the total league buy-in (the total league buy-in is figured based on $55/tm, so $880 total). This way everyone has the option to run their team how they want, and put in however much they want. Of course, there will be some people that decide to run a Yankees type budget and some that decide to run on a shoestring budget (I plan to run the shoestring type). That is what makes this league so great! Starting lineups will be C,2-CI,2-MI,3-OF,3-UTIL,10-Pitchers with 10 bench spots and 5 IR spots to be used only for players that are actually injured or suspended. In addition to this each team will have the option of having up to 50 minor league players, but each one is given a league minimum contract ($1) until promoted to the MLB at which time they'll receive a standard 3 year (with an option after the 2nd) contract at $5. Teams can choose to own up to the max of 50 minor league players, or none at all. Again, this league is all about being flexible. Everyone gets to run their teams how they want.
$200 - Champion
$150 - 2nd Place
$100 - 3rd Place
$50 - 4th Place
$40 - 5th and 6th Place
$30 - Division Champions (4 divisions)
$20 - Monthly Best Record (April-August)

if interested. I can cover more of the rules and send you a copy of the league constitution.
I also have a 12 team 5x5 H2H Keeper on ESPN that is going into its 5th season that needs to fill 2 spots. Here's the link for that one http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffi ... sonId=2013
the teams are Rick Rude's Mustache and C-Town Bombers
If you're interested in the ESPN league you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have different emails for the two leagues because it makes it a lot easier to keep everything organized.
