With those pitchers of yours, I'd go Medlen. He's not going to do what he did down the stretch last year, but he's going to be huge. Think Cueto...fearless mentality, excellent command, misses bats.

You have to keep those arms? I'd rather have elsewhere...
Don't tell me you traded, from the looks of it...
Vmart bleh .... good maybe for one year (but I'd rather have a much younger Rosario)!

I think at this point you have to go with Medlen if thats the best arms you can get wow...Why keep average pitchers?

No.. it's a contract league...

All names are ones with expiring contracts...

We keep one Franchise Players... (Edwin)

and can keep one more as a Transition (that you keep if you match the $$$ in auction)
So got V-Mart last year for $2... and put him on a 3 year...

So it's matching the price of Medlin or Rosario...
(I was going to be Rosario... but after realizing how $hitty my SP are... that lead me to Medlin.)...

So Rosario will sell cheaper... (and I can buy the other one, if I want.)
I just get to match the winning... so it's slightly cheaper.

I always base auction keepers on pure value and in this case it should be Medlen.

I'd take Medlin, but I also think Victor Martinez is going to be a really solid bat this year.
