12-team, 5x5 $260 budget auction league. we keep only 3.
I'm keeping Verlander $23 and Jennings $5.
Pedroia is good value at $33. Last year in our initial draft, 22 guys went for $40+. Pedroia as an elite, borderline first round 2B -- I expect him to go for at least $43. He's the safest choice, but I'm tempted to save money at 2b and go after a cheaper alternative in the auction and spend that extra cash saved on 1B, 3B, and/or OF. I like Kimbrel, especially with his Ks, but I will no doubt be able to find 2-3 closers for the same price range (albeit they're not Kimbrel) --highest priced closer last year was $15. Waino has the highest upside for the price, but he also has the biggest flame-out potential...and I'd be keeping 2 SP out of 3 keepers. Thoughts?
