Smoke 'Em XXVII, Beancounter's Dream (FULL) Topic

Welcome to the latest edition (XXVII, but who's counting?) of Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em, the league that forces you to use your entire roster!  This time around is the Beancounter's Dream Edition, which is sure to cause headaches and eyestrain during roster construction - how can you possibly pass on that?

Basic Rules:

* $108M cap
* Yes to DH
* No to trades, waivers, clones, AAA, and injuries
* Player seasons from 1920-2012 only (no Addie Joss etc...)

Standard Smoke 'Em Rules:

* Each pitcher must get at least 81 sim IP and each hitter must get at least 162 sim AB in order for your team to be post-season eligible.

And the special rule for the Beancounter's Dream edition:

* All 25 of your player salaries must have the same last digit (the digit in the one's place). For example, if you choose '1' you can have players like 2010 Troy Tulowitzki ($6,997,541) and 2005 Cliff Floyd ($4,987,301), because their salaries both end with '1', but you can ONLY take players with that trait - players with salaries that end in any other digit cannot be on your roster.

Join a great group of owners in one of the longest-running themes out there!  Building the team is a challenge; so is managing your roster in order to get all of your players past the IP and AB cutoffs.  Claim your spot here and I will send along the league ID.
