After doing some research on the capabilities of some sites that host fantasy baseball, it seems that CBS will be able to accomplish most of what we need to incorporate such a task. It will require some offline documents for detailed information, but CBS will be able to track in-season payrolls, 40-man rosters, as well as active and full minor league rosters (in aggregate). So this is good news.
The only downside is that the scoring is not quite fully customizable to the point we need it to be. We would be able to track live scoring as far as statistics, but will have to come up with a method of release of the actual results (I can easily make up a spreadsheet that people can calculate that on the fly by simply inputting the stats copied from a CBS report.
The outline is coming, I promise. I'm trying to devise some ways to most accurately account for the player dynamic in things like arbitration, contracts, free agency, etc. I think I've got some things to make that work.
