Huh? If Pujols was just $35 or something along those lines you would have to keep him. No brainer in my eyes ... especially with an elevated draft cap. That said ... I would not keep any of them. That would be close to market value for each, IMO.



Perhaps, but the most expensive player in our AL only auction league last season was $41. I traded for Adrian Gonzalez at $37 during the season, and I plan to toss him back. I just don't think that keeping such expensive players put you in a very good position for the auction.

The original poster does have $20 more than the norm to spend, but he also has 2 more roster spots than normal. Also, he's in a mixed league, which depresses player value.

Like everyone said, toss them back.

I would go Pujols if you are going to keep one but he's overpriced.

Perhaps it depends on your league mates and their drafting tenancies. In my mixed auction league Pujols/Miggy go for $45-50 every season ($260 cap). I'm also conducting a similar slow auction right now and both went for the same. There is a premium set on the elite talents.
