I notice on the average salary page (https://ottoneu.fangraphs.com/averageValues) there are a handful of players with salaries over $100 (Harper is owned at $104 by somebody, for example).
However, during a mid-season auction, it appears that I can enter up to $100 as my highest bid. If I type in $101 and above, it says my bid is invalid. So, I assume these players were grabbed during the pre-season auction instead of mid-season.
Is there a reason to cap mid-season bids at $100? While that’s - in all practicality - over-investing in a single player, wouldn’t it still be allowed if that team could field the remaining roster spots?
