That's 16 players for 226 dollars leaving me with 74 dollars for 10 more players. This way I will have my starting offense and can just spend most of the money on starting pitching. What do you guys think?

So you wouldn't keep Burnett or Hudson at all? What if I kept all 3? That would mean an extra 13 dollars for Volquez.

I would let Pence go back in, at that value......see if you can score him or a replacement for less.
And I don't like Bud Norris this year, if he stays in the AL, there is talk that he is available, see if the Astros move him back to the NL.

I would think twice about Pence at that price considering what you might be able to get in his place.

Ok, I will throw back Pence but I am having a hard time figuring out which of my pitchers to keep. Should I keep Norris and Hudson and League?

C Posey(28)
1b Hosmer(5)
2b Kinsler(34)
SS Cabrera (14)

OF McCutchen(37)

Pitchers:
AJ Burnett(7)
League(9)
Motte(7)
Kenley Jansen(7)

I'd throw all your pitching back none of it is worth keeping. Volquez? Please. Which Hudson is that? Daniel has regressed, Tim Hudson is a bit older and still a wily vet I think I'd go young and just hope for the best. Aside from Burnett you have no values to your SP staff. I would go into the auction with as much as money as possible to land you an ace or two. I wouldn't spend more than 5 bucks an arm on the rest of your staff. You have a trio of good relievers here 2 quality closers and the handcuff, so I'd definitely keep all those good values. You will need plenty of SP and a 3b other than that you look set with a solid core of young talent.

Madog,

I think you have a good idea but the guys who have won this league the past two seasons have pitching QUANITY not QUALITY. You need to be able to stream your pitchers and most of the aces will be kept. I think you have the right idea but keeping Tim Hudson and Cobb at least as well would be a better option. Any other ideas?
