I like Gallardo but not sure how you could keep him.

Miggy and Cano appear to still be at a bargain. Holliday is about market value. I could see skipping over him and rolling the dice on Anderson if you would prefer to go into the draft with more loot. I can't see throwing Lawrie back at that cost though.

Medlan and Anderson should be worth the risk. Bourn is may be declining but will definitely be worth more than $17. $42 for Miggy and $33 for Robby seem close to face value. I'd probably only go with one of them, though.

As for 5 picks, I'd go Cano, Bourn, Lawrie, Medlan and Anderson

This looks about right. I am still buying into Lawrie and I think I would let Holiday go and keep Anderson. You should still be able to get Holiday in the auction if you feel like spending $30.

I like Holliday a lot but with your other expensive guys, id take Bourn over him. Close call for me between Medlen 2 dollars more or Brett Anderson

Miggy Cabrera - $42
Robby Cano - $33
Brett Lawrie - $14
Ben Revere - $6 (easy decision to take Revere over Bourn due to cost, they will put up similar stats mind you)
Kris Medlen - $7
