2B- Aaron Hill $15
3B- Pablo Sandoval $18
SS- Derek Jeter $16
OF- Matt Holliday $29
OF- Carlos Lee $14
OF- Shin-Soo Choo $15
Util- Carlos Pena $1

SP- Tim Lincecum $32

B- Michael Bourn $1
B- J.J. Hardy $1
B- Cameron Maybin $1
B- Travis Snider $1

B- Jorge De La Rosa $1
B- Randy Wells $1
B- Mike Gonzalez $1

i had a nice draft. i went with an aggressive approach. got a pretty nice deal on the best rotation in my league by far, and filled out my hitting lineup without having a weak spot. i decided to sacrifice bench due to it being keepers, so i bought a bunch of $1 prospect types that could end up being gold.

hopefully i dont get hit with the injury bug!

yeah, i just hope Carpenter stays healthy. if healthy hes a top 3 pitcher, but thats a big if.

if we choose to keep a player, their salary goes up 3 bucks the next year. ill probably have to throw back Tex, Holliday, and possibly Lincecum, but guys like Sandoval at 18, and Choo, Hill, and Gallardo at 15 wont probably ever see the open market again.

i plan on having Lincecum every year, but depending on what kind of year he has, i might just throw him back and re-buy him next year for the same price or less.

moves? Im sure with a 14 team league, AND with these teams being LOADED on bench players, not much you can do on the waiver wire...You got a steal in Chris Davis. Upgrade your outfield. Get more speed....Andrus, or Borbon on Texas are worth getting for low prices. Alcides Escobar, another SS with a high amount of SBs is worth trading for.

Yes it is too much, even if you dont feel him, Ibanez is a proven commodity, in a powerful lineup. You are giving up way too much, go get another player, Upton for Ibanez is a fair trade.

Somebody just offered me Chris Young (OF) and Pablo Sandoval (1B/3B) for Neftali Feliz (CP) in my money league!

Wow. If your league cares about their money they'll all veto that trade.
