I started this league and made it like my other league but with a few differences.

We all took one team (A few of the Rays fans, myself included, decided not to take the Rays so we would have equal share in the players during free agency), I took the Brewers due to the quality of young inexpensive players they have.

 The league allows for $200M total salary and we get to protect 15 minor leaguers (including the 4 round minor league draft).  We have 13 teams in our league.  Here is how my team looks right now.
