I like Price but $40 is a little much. But if your league values top players a lot, then I might be willing to keep him. Especially since you aren't keeping any other high priced guys. Banuelos is hit or miss. $3 is a decent price but I don't expect to see him this year so if you could get him back in the draft then I have no problem letting him go.

AL ONLY $250 CAP 12 TEAMS
KEEP UP TO 8

$3 Alexi Casilla, Min 2B, SS 3
$3 Lonnie Chisenhall, Cle 3B ;-D - 3B being what it is, this is a good deal. Chisenhall might not be a star, but he's got an excellent chance to be an above-average contributor.
$3 Michael Brantley, Cle OF
$14 David Ortiz, Bos DH - considered it, but I can't imagine him going for higher at auction.
$9 Russell Martin, NYY C - same reason
$13 Rajai Davis, Tor OF DTD
$9 Johnny Damon, TB OF, DH
$33 Alexei Ramirez, CWS SS :-?
$21 Adam Lind, Tor DH, 1B 8-o
$3 Scott Sizemore, Oak 2B, 3B
$21 Brian Roberts, Bal 2B - haha no

PITCHERS Start 2 P 3 sp and 2 rp
$40 David Price, TB SP - I think Price will be a top 10 pitcher this season and I'm still really hesitant about going that high for him. Depends on your league. If you think you can get him back for less, do that, but if you have any doubts that he'll go for more, keep him. He's good.
$3 Matt Moore, TB SP ;-D - easiest decision I'll make today.
$17 John Danks, CWS SP

$3 Brandon McCarthy, Oak SP - ;-D
$3 Darren Oliver, Tex RP
$3 Jon Rauch, Tor RP
$3 Carlos Carrasco, Cle SP
$3 Glen Perkins, Min RP
$3 Manuel Banuelos, NYY SP ;-D Depends. You have a lot of bench spots? If he gets called up it won't be until at least midseason, and don't expect him to be good right away. That being said, he's probably the best lefty pitching prospect in the game. Lefties with 3 above-average pitches don't come along every day, especially ones who have actually shown flashes of dominance in the high minors.

We only get 4 bench spots, so Banuelos will need to play this year to have value. I don't see the yanks using him at all. All pickups were $1 and we add $2 each year therefore the several $3 players I have. U was thinking about keeping Ortiz (actually good value in my league), cassilla, Chisen, and Brantley. Then Price, Moore, McCarthy and perkins. thoughts?

I am going to need some bats. Fielder and Pujols are both going to be available but I know they will go for a lot probably 55+.

I agree with lane's 4 keepers. I would consider adding Sizemore onto that list. At $3 he could be a bargain as it looks like he will hit in the middle of Oakland's order. And qualifying at both 2B and 3B is a nice to have in an AL only league.

I like this group here, and I also like adding Ortiz. There really aren't that many productive DH's out there, and $14 is good value for one that actually produces.

Agreed. A 30 HR, 90 RBI guy for $14 is nice. I am adding him to the list of 5 above.
