"R" Bid Submission (one week after roster declaration): Each team may submit a list of bids on "R" players. You may bid a new salary for any "R" player on any team. This new salary must be higher than the player's current salary (which is $5 + last year's salary). The team who currently has the player then has 2 options: Keep the player at the new salary offer +10% of the difference, or give up the player to the bidding team. For example: MR has Willie Mays on his roster, and last year his salary was $495. MR declares him an "R" player so his new salary is $500. WW bids $700 on Mays. MR now has 2 options: Keep Mays at $720 salary ($700 + 10% of $200 difference); or let Mays go to WW at $700 salary. Remember, that you must have room under the salary cap to match a bid.
If there are multiple bids on the same player, the team bidding the highest is the winner. If there are ties for the highest bid, they will be resolved using the draft order (team with the better draft selection wins the bid). Bids are in increments of $1.
A team may bid on no more than 2 "R" players from any one team.
Contingencies are allowed. For example, “Bid $700 on Willie Mays… if not high bid, then bid $600 on Duke Snider”. Also remember that this is not EBay style bidding. If you bid $300 and the next highest bid is $20, then the new salary is $300, not $21.
