You will be given 120M and 16 salary ranges. You must draft one player in each salary range and the remaining 9 players must be under the lowest range. Sounds pretty straightforward, right? People have run themes like that before. Where this league gets interesting is that each salary range is based around a RATIO of either $/PA or $/IP, and not a flat salary number. View the thread in the Classifieds for details.
