Trumbos around at the end in most drafts it seems. Not bad for a 1B,OF,3B with 30 HR potential.

End game MI (if needed) - Altuve

End game CI (if needed) - Figgins

End game C (if needed) - Doumit

OF's - Bourjos, Boesch, Cain, Fowler, Brantley, Venable, Reimold, Presley, Joyce, Thames, Viciedo, De Aza

SP's - Sale, Minor, Floyd, Danks, Stauffer, Nicasio, Alvarez, Milone, Harrison, Volquez, Samardzjia, Baker

Chris Sale is not an end-game pitcher. In our auction yesterday, he went around the same price range as jordan zimmerman, max scherzer, jaime garcia, derek holland. Just below this level were guys like danks, cahill, hughes, etc.

in the end game, i took ted lilly (safe), homer bailey (post-hype sleeper), and felipe paulino (sleeper from the pitching tiers guy).

That didn't happen because Chris Sale isn't an end-game pitcher. It happened because somebody in your league overpaid tragically. Sale is only borderline ownable in a 12 team league.

I think it's somewhere in between. He should not be anywhere near the price range of Max and Zimmermann, that's just a mistake. I probably think that because I think both of those guys are very under valued and have them across several leagues. Garcia and Holland? I'm with that, league format depends which of those 3 I prefer. He usually goes after them though, which is when I target him and why I usually miss Garcia and Holland. I've left all of my drafts with Sale or Minor as my #5 and finally had one yesterday in which I got both as my #5 and #6.

I really like Nolan Reimold as an end gamer this year. Could be a sneaky 20-20 guy.

agree with the former, disagree with the latter. his price was inflated because it was towards the end of the draft and a couple guys still had money and had him pegged as a sleeper. you could make the argument that talent-wise, he is borderline ownable in a 12 teamer, but he's been so hyped as a sleeper this off-season, that i highly doubt there are many 12 team leagues where he isnt rostered.

Would you guys rather Bailey or phil Hughes?

Homer. He has imrpvoed each year, just can't stay healthy. Hughes' fall last year was pretty awful. COuld bounce back, but I'd need to see it first.

It's a shame Duffy and Luebke went down. They had a lot of promise.
