Unlimited keepers, yes keep him at $7. I have him at $8. The thing you have to analyze is what his inflation price will be in an auction format. If everyone has a lot of quality keepers at great value, then a Kuroda's implied inflation value may actually be as high as $14.

Yeah he could go for about 12ish I was thinking. So about half of that is decent value.
If we get Dodgers Kuroda (when healthy) you have a steal there.

Absolutely. Man was the Yank's best pitcher last year and for $7 how can you really go wrong? No way he is going cheaper than that unless your owners all run out of money and he is left to the end of the auction to be brought up for bidding.

As to what his value is, inflation not withstanding, in a 12 team league, I would say in the $9-11 range.

Nothing. As I said, he has already proven he can pitch and pitch in the AL East. The only concern is when he falls off the cliff due to age. I have no problem with him at $7 as I think that is a fairly decent buy for a guy that can put up pretty good numbers.
