I've actually seen Pujols go for higher than 58 in some mock auctions. Doesn't shock me at all.
Especially since as I've noted time and time again from doing research on the subject, auction guides tend to vastly underestimate the prices for premium talent.
The thing about this is, the people who write auction guides have a natural human bias towards "even" spreads between players. It's more natural, for example, to say that a player goes for $14 and the next best player after that goes for $13.
Reality is not so neat.
There tends to be great demand on those premium players. Not everyone can have them, obviously.
In addition, a lot of competitors are getting smart about value over replacement. They know that the $3 player is not very different from the guy on waiver to the $1 player, so why invest those two extra bucks? What you tend to see is a lot of inflation on the top end of talent and then a lot of $1 players. Auction guides vastly overestimate the amount of players who go in the middle ranges.
