I can easily see Verlander drawing that value in a 10-teamer. I tend to find that, in reality, the top guys at each position cost more than projected value.
I'd actually be tempted to keep either Myers @ $2 (could be the Rookie Sensation of 2013, and be a strong value for many years), Samardzija @ $2 (great value for a Top 30 pitcher with upside) or Scherzer @ $8 (Top 10 SP potential, IMO, though if your cats penalize walks heavily maybe not).
Trumbo is a hard sell for me, even at $3, because in a 10-teamer where you keep 5 he's pretty much a replacement player.
