Our 10-team, MLB universe, keeper (can keep 5-9 off 25 man roster with prices increasing $5 every year they are kept), 5x5, auction ($260 in total salaries per team) league is ramping up to 12 owners for next season. We've already done an expansion draft, but I'm wondering about the impact of going to 12 teams.
Have any of you guys expanded a league, and if so what resulted in terms of salaries? Did the addition of two more teams drive prices up for players by a lot?
The highest price player we've had at the auction in five years of play was ARod for $56(last year). Some of the other salaries from last year's auction included Bonds $46, Guerrero $49, Unit $39, Abreu $36, Hudson $30, Kornerko $20, Maddux $10, Pavano $3. Do you think salaries will go up appreciably?
Let's go Mets!
