$270 cap for starting line-up (22 player in starting line-up including 9 pitchers). Bench is a draft where every player taken is $2.

The league has crazy inflation due to players being kept. i.e. Pujols is available this year and will likely go for between $55-$60.

I can keep up to 8 players (players increase in cost by $5 every year you keep them)

Here are my best options:

Adrian Gonzalez (34) ;-D
Ryan Braun (33) ;-D
MIguel Cabrera (44) ;-D
Jacoby Ellsbury (36) ;-D
Carlos Gonzalez (20) ;-D
Alex Gordon (6)
Ben Zobrist (18) ;-D
Starlin Castro (18) ;-D
Shin-Soo Choo (17)
Brett Lawrie (29) - We are near Toronto and he will go for atleast this in the auction (other good 3b's are being kept)
Bryce Harper (8) ;-D
Mike Moustakas (6)
Kelly Johnson (13)
Dan Uggla (30)
Josh Johnson (20)
Matt Garza (10)

I'll let people give feedback before commenting on what I am thinking.

I'd take this core into your draft. No need for Lawrie with MCab gaining 3b eligibility. Scoop up Chipper toward the end on the cheap until he's able to play there for you.


Hard to argue with those keepers. I like Choo to rebound but there is no where to put him.

201 spent, but your core is amazing. Should easily put you in the lead for all hitting stats, and with the right pitchers you can compete on those areas

I'm leaning towards this:

Adrian Gonzalez (34)
Ryan Braun (33)
MIguel Cabrera (44)
Jacoby Ellsbury (36)
Carlos Gonzalez (20)
Alex Gordon (6)
Ben Zobrist (18)
Starlin Castro (18)

However, I just traded Brett Lawrie (29) for Dee Gordon (10). Is it worth keeping Gordon?

I've also had someone offer me Mike Morse ($10) for Dee Gordon ($10). Would I be better off with a $10 Morse than an $18 Zobrist, $20 Cargo or $36 Ellsbury? I just like guys who have power and speed.
