For the third time in five years, Fred Zinkie heads into a Tout Wars Mixed Auction throwing out the first nomination. He hasn’t shown quite the same dominance in the even-numbered years as he has in the odd. Could that open up some opportunity?
Newcomers to Tout Mixed Auction, Bret Sayre (won Tout X last year), and Gene McCaffrey, from the NL league, hope to make a difference.
Players are listed in the order they will choose in the reserve draft after the auction. The numbers in parentheses are the amount of FAAB each team starts the season with.
