I am in a league that is an Auction Dynasty type league.
It is H2H and we have 12 teams.
The scoring cats are normal + BB & QS
We get $100 a year to spend on Waiver wire pickups
Our league is weekly so you can not sub guys in and out and can only change on Mondays.
Someone in my league had drafted 4 3rd basemen including headley who they have dropped for Matt Carpenter? Why.. I have no clue. He should have tried trading him IMO.
Anyway, I know people are putting in their Waiver claim to pick this guy up. From what I remember I had 1 team in this league last year that paid off Waivers $50 for Jeff Sam (P - Cubs) and $50 for M. harvey (P - Mets) and used all his FAAB money..
Now I am wondering, Should i put in a Claim for this guy, and How much is reasonable. The only bad thing about spending extra on this guy is, Whatever is spent on him turns into his Keeper cost if you want to keep him.. So if you spend a ton of FAAB theres no point in keeping him, yet you have him for the whole year so... is it worth it.
here is my team, Please let me know what you guys think. Should I save my Waiver money for something else??? should i blow it all? how much is reasonable? Also who would I drop? I know W. Myers is highly wanted in my league and dont want to drop him, I like Taveras but think I might be able to get him back after putting headley in my DL spot.... but what would I do when he comes off the DL?

I am under the Impression someone in the league will easily spend at least $50 of their waiver money to claim this guy. Thanks in advance for all your help guys.
