Basically, in our money league we have a salary cap (hey, I bet you like that) of $260 with which to "buy" 22 players (8 pitchers and 14 position players).
5x5 means 5 hitting categories and 5 pitching categories. In our case, we use HR, RBI, OBP, AVG, SB, ERA, WHIP, K/9, SAVES, WINS.
For perspective, I paid $45 for Vlad Guerrero last year. $22 for Eric Chavez. At $12 (last year), Derrek Lee was a bargain. We get to keep four players (up to) the next year, but you add $5 to their salary.
In the end, I think Derrek Lee is worth $17. He could make or break me, though, if he comes WAY back down to earth in 2006.
