Wanted Baker and Gonz. I had to make sure I got Baker before I could bid any more on Gonz. Didn't want to spend all my money on just the two of them. Almost went for Lidge instead, I'm just not nearly as confident that Lidge can keep the job. If Lidge was one dollar cheaper I would have gone that way. Or if Gonzo was $1 more I couldn't bid on him. I don't like Gonzo at this price, but I want one more closer. I think I can still get the other players I want with what I have left.

That was the problem for me. I went into this auction hoping to grab Soriano and Gonzalez as my closers. Figured I could get them rather cheaply...held out for Gonzo all this time and then he just got to be too much. Of course, I probably could have spent my money a little more wisely in regards to a few players, but it is what it is.
Wow -- expected to see quite a few people trying to rush the opening deadline to get their $1 players in before anyone else (otherwise you have to bid $2 on that player if someone else nominates him of course). Then again, I suppose we're not quite there yet.
