** Potential Free Agent Per Contract Terms


What happens if the player doesn’t give notice within the 15 days. Are they no longer FA eligible?

** what does this mean?
The team has an option for additional year(s)
The player has an option for additional year(s)
or maybe one or both


Unrelated question:
We are considering changing a long term 12 team mixed keeper league from Snake draft to Auction. We figure that we can take the dollar values from last year to assign value to players currently on rosters and we will expand keepers from 5 to 6 players. But what are your recommends regarding inflation and contracts?
We had in mind a $5 inflation per year (Should that be applied the first year they are kept?) and then a 3 year contract limit. Would love to hear your suggestions and what you would do starting from scratch.

Resign Delgado , putz and tatis and then try to go for vladimir guerrero , matt holiday or jemaine dye and then finish off by getting marco scutaro as are second basement

Assuming in answer to my question above that we have a $5 inflation on players, then could you please help me choose between these Pitchers. I would like to keep 3-4 pitchers at most. (12 team mixed $260 budget)
CC $31, Nolasco $20, Greinke $19, Wainwright $14, Carpenter $10, R.Soriano $6, Aardsma $6


If the Mets don’t get either Holliday or Bay I think they’re in trouble. Francoeur is OK in right but they still need more power out of their outfield. Their reported pursuit of Figgins is interesting. Does this mean they’re not confident in Reyes’ health going forward and need another leadoff option?

I like Greinke, Wainwright, Carpenter and Aardsma. I see a nice bounceback year from Nolasco but 20 bucks is still too pricey.
