Financials....what happens when I.....?

I noticed that my QS MLB league with two expansion teams had an inordinate number of good talent sitting on the sidelines during the free agent period.

I have not edited any financial settings.

In checking the financial health of the other teams I noted that they had little room to sign FA's.

I edited the teams budgets individually and gave them more $$$ to sign. The big names quickly came off the board. However the contracts were inflated and most were multi-year deals. I fear I have created a monster for the coming seasons!

So I now turn it over to the more seasoned and wise posters who may enlighten me on my actions and their consequences.....

Think of it as supply and demand - if your league has lots of $$$, then player demands will be high, if it doesn't, they won't.

There are many ways to control income, ticket prices, media revenue, etc.

Big budgets = big spending, so try to find a medium that you are happy with.

Keep in mind, what I mention above is only a part of the BIG picture (financials), I'm sure others will add to what I said.
"I don't think a manager should be judged by whether he wins the pennant, but by whether he gets the most out of the twenty-five men he's been given." Chuck Tanner
