Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?
The $3 would be added to the player's 2010 cost.
So, in 2010 you win Pujols at $12 (what a bargain!) and decide to keep him on your team in 2011. His cost goes up to $15. If he is the only player you kept, you would have $245 left for your 2011 team ($260 budget - $15 for Pujols).
Keep him in 2012 and he costs $18, and so on.
