I'd go with one of those pitchers
Well, Pedroia's a borderline first round-second round talent. Last year, in our initial draft, 22 guys went for over $40. Now, with savings from cheap keepers...I wouldn't be surprised if good talent goes for even more. It's no guarantee, but Pedroia's is one of only three elite 2b, so I'd have to assume he'll go for at least $40+. So, while that's more of a guaranteed good value, I'm considering cheaper 2b options...keeping one of Kimbrel or Wainwright, and spending bigger on other position(s) than 2b. To whomever asked about keeping McCutchen over Jennings...Jennings is $5, Cutch would be $33. That's the difference. While I like Cutch more, he's definitely not $28 better.
