What? Are you trying to tell us that you have better things to do than run/organize/update this pool that we are enjoying at no cost to us? :-D

No worries here, I keep track of my own progress. But it does look nice, nice enough to emulate for other leagues. ;-D

I'll be lucky not to finish dead last the way I'm bidding so recklessly. :-/

My goal was met this year... not to bid over 29.00 for any one player. Came close with lincecum & reyes but that was it.

I think spreading your dough more evenly (which can account for some nice deals) is the way to go. If not, will change it up next year lol. ;-D

This has been one of the biggest surprise bids for me so far this draft. I really didn't think Liriano would go for that much in this draft.

I was willing to go to $17, and totally thought I had him at $19. Never thought Bwanna would go to $20...

This is a list of my bargain and overpriced players. This is just off the top of my head I don't have my rankings done yet. Completely subjective so don't get your shorts in a bunch, just looking for some discussion. Each auction is different but for this draft alone I see the following.

BARGAINS. - Players I think are cheaper than they should be in this draft.
Chris B Young $14
Matt Kemp $30
Brian Roberts $8
Jason Heyward $20
Edinson Volquez $12
Aramis Ramirez $8
Derek Jeter $8
Grady Sizemore $14
Pedro Alvarez $6
Dan Uggla $22
Chase Utley $29

Players that could be deals if they produce but are a bit risky

Vernon Wells $6
Brian Fuentes $5
Koji Uehara $8
David Ortiz $8
Manny Ramirez $1 Can't complain about $1 even if he retires. Decent risk/reward.
Mike Stanton $6
Paul Konerko $9
Jose Bautista $19

OVERPAID - According to me and my drafting strategy and this auction itself.

Joe Mauer $28
Matt Thornton $11
Brian McCann $23
Russel Martin $4 - never be owned by me again.
David Wright $39
Buster Posey $18
Carlos Santana $13
Zack Greinke $23
Adam Dunn $36
Jimmy Rollins $20 - was trying to bid him up and got stuck.
Car-Go and McCutchen - Overpaid for both.
Josh Hamilton $42 - Huge risk at that price.
