Sorry, it's in the signature. 12 teams and 12 keepers with no restrictions. The "first rounder" would essentially be after 144 keepers plus 11 others come off the board (assuming I win first place and pick last in the first round).
The other team has Machado at 3B, so it makes sense for him to move an old veteran like Beltre. He's now offering Beltre and Frank Liriano for Jay Bruce and a #1. I'm thinking of countering with Heyward and a #1 for Beltre and CC Sabathia.
I just hate the idea of giving up a young player like Bruce or Heyward. Realistically though, is Heyward likely to be a perennial 30-30 player? Or is he closer to 25HR and 12SB with a .265AVG?
