You can follow the auction here. Listen to commentary on SiriusXM Channel 619. Reserve rounds will be on this Google Sheet. Look for the AL tab.

The auction is over but you can read the chat transcript

[Mar 14, 8:40 AM] rotoman: Good morning world.
[Mar 14, 8:41 AM] rotoman: We should be getting underway in about 20 minutes.
[Mar 14, 8:41 AM] rotoman: Derek VanRiper, your MC today, is on his way.
[Mar 14, 8:47 AM] DVR: Good Morning!
[Mar 14, 8:49 AM] rotoman: Hey Derek!
[Mar 14, 8:49 AM] B_Walton1: Looking forward to your commentary, DVR!
[Mar 14, 8:53 AM] Jay-Z: So DVR, if you were in say a 15-team mixed auction with OBP instead of AVG, what would you be willing to go on say Mike Trout?

[Mar 14, 8:54 AM] rotoman: I just made the window a little bigger. Let me know if it is too big for your screen.
[Mar 14, 8:55 AM] DVR: Great question, Jay-Z!
[Mar 14, 8:55 AM] DVR: We’ll find out around 3p ET today, right?
[Mar 14, 8:56 AM] Jay-Z: Odds are … not enough.
[Mar 14, 8:57 AM] celslagerFL: Morning
[Mar 14, 8:57 AM] DVR: Your name isn’t even a prime number ‘Guest5808’
[Mar 14, 8:58 AM] DVR: Jay-Z…the serious question is….at what point does it matter?
[Mar 14, 9:00 AM] Jay-Z: It could if everyone’s is known to know the Pitch/Hit split which was all over the place in the Tout Draft
[Mar 14, 9:00 AM] Jay-Z: Also, they seem to have forgotten it was a OBP league.
[Mar 14, 9:01 AM] rotoman: Mixed league bids are not linear. You can pay whatever you want for Trout, though obviously if you pay more you run out of money sooner. But there are enough good $1 guys it could work out.
[Mar 14, 9:01 AM] DVR: Peter’s point is what I was getting at…I think the margin for error with spending on Trout is huge.
[Mar 14, 9:02 AM] DVR: If last year’s mixed auction room is any indication, maybe we reach a new high price?
[Mar 14, 9:03 AM] Jay-Z: No three year tie at $56. He is becoming our Khris Davis.
[Mar 14, 9:04 AM] DVR: I think we were on the rise last year with aggressive stars-and-scrubs approaches though. It seems like it’s been moving that way for a few seasons…I suspect you have it measured out 🙂
[Mar 14, 9:05 AM] DVR: What’s the max you would all pay for Mike Trout in 12-team, AL-only with OBP?
[Mar 14, 9:05 AM] Jay-Z: He’s player who is healthy and in the AL so $5 boost right there
[Mar 14, 9:06 AM] Jay-Z: Probably around the mid-40’s
[Mar 14, 9:10 AM] DVR: Also very curious to see where Bregman and Altuve come in this morning. Running the AC at FanGraphs with The BAT, OBP, 4 OF…Bregman at $37.4, Altuve at $32.2. Only six players top $30 with the settings I ran, and the gap between Trout ($50.4) and Bregman is massive.
[Mar 14, 9:10 AM] Callen: Any downgrade for you with the trash can scandal?
[Mar 14, 9:13 AM] DVR: I’ve been pretty light with the downgrade in mixed leagues, but haven’t drafted/auctioned any AL-only leagues yet. Very good players cheating, are still very good players when they’re not, but slightly elevated risk from increased HBP, and I do think it’s fair to wonder how they respond to being the league’s villains now.
[Mar 14, 9:13 AM] Jay-Z: OBP sleepers
[Mar 14, 9:14 AM] DVR: Yandy!
[Mar 14, 9:15 AM] jwhits: Kershaw- any concerns he loses another tick of velocity and falls off from his excellent 2019?
[Mar 14, 9:15 AM] DVR: Probably Miggy, at this point….Kepler gets a slight bump up in this format as well…has some significant AVG limitations with pull rates and very high FB%, but at least he walks to stabilize OBP.
[Mar 14, 9:15 AM] Jay-Z: At least Tim Locastro isn’t on the Astros. His HBP% would be record setting.
[Mar 14, 9:16 AM] DVR: Verlander at $28 to Liss was the first player off the board.
[Mar 14, 9:16 AM] DVR: He just added Cole for $37.
[Mar 14, 9:16 AM] DVR: Pocket aces, eh?
[Mar 14, 9:17 AM] jwhits: How is Woodruff being treated in your drafts? As a potential ace? Solid #2? Or still unproven I jury risk?
[Mar 14, 9:17 AM] rotoman: Liss is auctioning from Europe, so he’s been awake longer than most.
[Mar 14, 9:17 AM] DVR: jwhits — I think Kershaw is a top-10 SP again, in part because of the injuries pulling down some of the options who started draft season ahead of him.
[Mar 14, 9:17 AM] DVR: Luis Robert time….
[Mar 14, 9:18 AM] rotoman: I’m guessing 20..
[Mar 14, 9:18 AM] jwhits: Thanks DVR!
[Mar 14, 9:18 AM] DVR: (I’ve seen Woodruff as more of a high-end SP2….the high stakes crowd is pretty aggressive with him because of the K potential…I think he’s legit, only a matter of staying healthy).
[Mar 14, 9:18 AM] celslagerFL: But does this late start to the season push those injured guys back into the top 10
[Mar 14, 9:18 AM] DVR: $22 on Robert to Chris Liss, who is playing by himself today, apparently.
[Mar 14, 9:19 AM] jwhits: Thanks. LOVE Woodruff.
[Mar 14, 9:19 AM] DVR: celslagerFL: Without question, the delayed start gives injured players more time to recover (Mondesi, Buxton, Clevinger, Verlander, Paxton).
[Mar 14, 9:19 AM] DVR: Shane Bieber at $30 to Erickson….
[Mar 14, 9:20 AM] rotoman: Rotowire run.
[Mar 14, 9:20 AM] DVR: At this point, given the limited information we have….do you prefer Bieber at $30 or Verlander at $28?
[Mar 14, 9:21 AM] DVR: first closer: Brad Hand to Larry Schechter at $17
[Mar 14, 9:22 AM] rotoman: If you’re looking at the draft board, the By Team and By Pick lists show the prices. The By Position grid does not.
[Mar 14, 9:22 AM] DVR: Also…..Luis Robert at $22; similar to how I feel Fernando Tatis Jr. in some ways. Exciting player, obvious reasons to like, and much more likely to end up with him in an auction setting.
[Mar 14, 9:22 AM] DVR: Larry goes back-to-back with Yordan Alvarez at $26….only Mike Trout had a higher wRC+ than Alvarez last season (min. 300 PAs)
[Mar 14, 9:23 AM] DVR: (Mike Clevinger is currently on the block)
[Mar 14, 9:23 AM] DVR: Clevinger goes to Howard “Gravy Boat” Bender for $30….
[Mar 14, 9:24 AM] rotoman: No injury discount there.
[Mar 14, 9:24 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis with an eephus nom, fires Chance Sisco into the fray….
[Mar 14, 9:24 AM] DVR: $4 to Mike Podhorzer
[Mar 14, 9:24 AM] DVR: Liss delivers a terrible pun in the chat that we all could have groaned at if the room were mic’d up.
[Mar 14, 9:24 AM] DVR: Trout is on the block….
[Mar 14, 9:25 AM] DVR: Go $50, you cowards.
[Mar 14, 9:25 AM] DVR: Yes!
[Mar 14, 9:25 AM] DVR: Collette did it — $50 on Trout!!
[Mar 14, 9:25 AM] rotoman: Collette is surely on here.
[Mar 14, 9:26 AM] DVR: And we’re going to re-wind, because Franmil Reyes was mistakenly bid up to $51….probably a typo $15? Or $1 for every homer he’ll hit in a 120-ish game season?
[Mar 14, 9:26 AM] rotoman: What? A Franmil mistake?
[Mar 14, 9:27 AM] DVR: It sounds like Mike might have been stuck trying to bid on Trout, so my typo $15 theory is shot.
[Mar 14, 9:28 AM] rotoman: They’re reopeninig Trout?
[Mar 14, 9:28 AM] DVR: Yeah, Trout will be at $51 to Mike Gianella and still on the block momentarily.
[Mar 14, 9:29 AM] DVR: Almost back….
[Mar 14, 9:30 AM] DVR: Any particularly good buys early?
[Mar 14, 9:31 AM] Guest2216: Verlander with the delayed start
[Mar 14, 9:32 AM] DVR: Liss doesn’t like his own Gerrit Cole buy….I don’t think it’s bad since it wasn’t full freight.
[Mar 14, 9:32 AM] rotoman: I agree with that.
[Mar 14, 9:33 AM] Guest2216: Are they still bidding on Trout?
[Mar 14, 9:33 AM] DVR: Mike G is trying another computer.
[Mar 14, 9:34 AM] DVR: Trout is back on the block…..
[Mar 14, 9:34 AM] DVR: and up to $53 to Gianella
[Mar 14, 9:35 AM] DVR: Sold at $53….would anybody here have gone $54?
[Mar 14, 9:35 AM] DVR: (Jose Berrios is on the block)
[Mar 14, 9:36 AM] DVR: Currently at $19 to Davitt
[Mar 14, 9:36 AM] DVR: Sold at $22 to Gravy Boat
[Mar 14, 9:37 AM] DVR: Berrios at $22 seems right…division is still pretty soft.
[Mar 14, 9:37 AM] DVR: (Bregman on the block….up to $37 right now — Pod)
[Mar 14, 9:37 AM] rotoman: Even in OBP $53 is too much for a Trout who can’t be expected to run much.
[Mar 14, 9:38 AM] DVR: And that’s a sell….Uncle Larry didn’t go the extra dollar, but he was there at $36, FWIW.
[Mar 14, 9:38 AM] DVR: (Devers on the block now….up to $27, Liss)
[Mar 14, 9:38 AM] DVR: Wow, $27 is the sale price on Devers
[Mar 14, 9:38 AM] DVR: Arguably, the best hitter value so far?
[Mar 14, 9:39 AM] rotoman: Not an OBP guy unless he hits .300 again.
[Mar 14, 9:39 AM] DVR: Leibowitz steals a page from Doug Dennis’ strategy napkin, nominates Austin Romine for $3…he sells for $7 to Ryan Bloomfield.
[Mar 14, 9:39 AM] Guest619: Kind of love that start for Liss
[Mar 14, 9:39 AM] rotoman: Reigning champ.
[Mar 14, 9:40 AM] DVR: (Jose Ramirez on the block…)
[Mar 14, 9:40 AM] DVR: $40 to Patrick Davitt…does the shape of Ramirez’s 2019 concern anybody at this price?
[Mar 14, 9:40 AM] rotoman: Raises hand. Nods head.
[Mar 14, 9:41 AM] DVR: (Yasmani Grandal is up.)
[Mar 14, 9:41 AM] DVR: $21 to Collette for Grandal
[Mar 14, 9:42 AM] DVR: (Gleyber Torres is up.)
[Mar 14, 9:42 AM] DVR: In a stunner, Colton/Wolf land Torres for $30.
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] Guest619: Sarcasm?
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] DVR: Interesting Q re: Gleyber….Sleeper and The Bust guys brought it up a while back….does his dominance against the O’s last year concern you at all, in that he was just sort of OK/pretty good against everybody else?
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] DVR: (Corey Kluber on the block)
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] Vermontser: Anyone know what Sirius channel number to listen?
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] DVR: (619 — yup!)
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] DVR: sirius 210, xm 87
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] Vermontser: Thank you
[Mar 14, 9:43 AM] DVR: Kluber goes to Larry for $21.
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] DVR: Berrios at $22 or Kluber at $21…any strong preferences here?
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] DVR: (Taylor Rogers on the block.)
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] jwhits: People are believing in the Kluber bounce back!
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] DVR: I’m here for it….like his price a lot in snakes.
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] Kola2221: Both good buys
[Mar 14, 9:44 AM] DVR: Taylor Rogers goes for $20 to Podhorzer.
[Mar 14, 9:45 AM] DVR: How many closers do you trust in the AL pool?
[Mar 14, 9:45 AM] DVR: (Lindor up)
[Mar 14, 9:45 AM] jwhits: Berrios still has room to grow.
[Mar 14, 9:45 AM] DVR: Erickson gets Lindor at $40
[Mar 14, 9:45 AM] Joel Henard: Good morning fellas
[Mar 14, 9:46 AM] DVR: Morning, Joel
[Mar 14, 9:46 AM] DVR: Dennis gets $1 crickets on Astudillo
[Mar 14, 9:46 AM] DVR: He’s really worried about catchers this year, I guess.
[Mar 14, 9:46 AM] DVR: (Rendon is up)
[Mar 14, 9:46 AM] jwhits: Always a great part of the auction is the crickets.
[Mar 14, 9:47 AM] Guest619: He’s only like 3 injuries away from a reliable role
[Mar 14, 9:47 AM] DVR: Howard Bender gets Rendon at $35
[Mar 14, 9:47 AM] Guest619: Gravy boat
[Mar 14, 9:47 AM] DVR: (Franmil now back up)
[Mar 14, 9:48 AM] DVR: $23 to Dennis on Franmil Reyes
[Mar 14, 9:48 AM] DVR: Feel much better about him in the AL than I did in the NL
[Mar 14, 9:48 AM] Guest619: A steal compared to $51!
[Mar 14, 9:48 AM] DVR: (Altuve up)
[Mar 14, 9:49 AM] Kola2221: Love Franmil pick
[Mar 14, 9:49 AM] DVR: Altuve sells for $28 to Gianella
[Mar 14, 9:49 AM] DVR: ~$4 less than Auction Calculator price
[Mar 14, 9:49 AM] DVR: (Matt Olson up)
[Mar 14, 9:49 AM] DVR: Olson among the players who gets a bump up in OBP being used in place of AVG.
[Mar 14, 9:50 AM] DVR: Olson goes for $33 to Gravy Boat, who is spending pretty heavily
[Mar 14, 9:50 AM] Guest619: Likes his spending like he likes his gravy
[Mar 14, 9:50 AM] DVR: (Vlad Jr. up)
[Mar 14, 9:51 AM] DVR: Whoa, Vlad Jr. goes for $24 to Doug Dennis — I like that a lot.
[Mar 14, 9:51 AM] rotoman: The Bat has Altuve stealing 15 after grabbing 6 last year. THat’s a lot of your $4, if you don’t believe the legs.
[Mar 14, 9:51 AM] DVR: Liss, hating himself for spending on both Verlander and Cole in the opening noms, said he had a hard time not bidding $25.
[Mar 14, 9:52 AM] DVR: Good point, Peter — I’d probably split the difference in terms of my SB expectations.
[Mar 14, 9:52 AM] DVR: (Donaldson up)
[Mar 14, 9:52 AM] DVR: Donaldson goes for $27 to Podhorzer.
[Mar 14, 9:52 AM] Guest619: Speed will be down a tick with all the fastballs of his quad.
[Mar 14, 9:52 AM] DVR: (DJ LeMahieu is up)
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] rotoman: Guerrero went for $22 last year.
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] DVR: Maybe it was hard to run with a wire on?
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] DVR: Colton/Wolf get LeMahieu for $25…stacking Yankees?
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] DVR: (Blake Snell on the block)
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] rotoman: That’s the S in smart.
[Mar 14, 9:53 AM] rotoman: (Stacking, not Snell)
[Mar 14, 9:54 AM] DVR: Leibowitz lands Snell for $22…same price as Berrios.
[Mar 14, 9:55 AM] DVR: A little under projection, after Bieber and Clevinger went slightly over.
[Mar 14, 9:55 AM] celslagerFL: Big if but if he’s healthy could be a steal
[Mar 14, 9:55 AM] DVR: E-Rod just went — $17 to Bloomfield. Is this the year?
[Mar 14, 9:55 AM] DVR: Those last ~10 starts were pretty nice
[Mar 14, 9:55 AM] DVR: (Nick Anderson currently up)
[Mar 14, 9:56 AM] Guest619: Narrator: “It is Not”
[Mar 14, 9:56 AM] jwhits: That’s a lot for Erods big WHIP. Bloom is a believer.
[Mar 14, 9:56 AM] rotoman: Lots of caution in these pitchers with some question about them prices.
[Mar 14, 9:56 AM] DVR: Nick Anderson for $15 to Erickson….in that bullpen, I’m really not sure I’d go there, but in this format, plenty of value to be earned even if he’s not used like a traditional closer.
[Mar 14, 9:57 AM] DVR: (Nelson Cruz on the block)
[Mar 14, 9:57 AM] Guest8858: Will there be a spreadsheet of all the results, not just the reserves, once the auction is complete?
[Mar 14, 9:57 AM] DVR: Bloomfield gets Cruz at $29….maybe one of the few rooms where he reached an appropriate price?
[Mar 14, 9:57 AM] rotoman: There is a grid view now at the Fantrax link, which doesn’t have prices, alas. So I think we will make a spreadsheet.
[Mar 14, 9:58 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis, stuck on the catchers tab in the auction room maybe? Noms Austin Allen, who goes at $5 to Collette.
[Mar 14, 9:58 AM] DVR: (Bogaerts is up.)
[Mar 14, 9:58 AM] Guest8858: Thanks! Already following the list on Fantrax, looking forward to the final results!
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: I like Allen as a second-catcher in this format especially….Sean Murphy is the superior defender, but Allen as a left-handed bat could carve out a larger role than expected.
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: Steady pop everywhere in the minors too.
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: And probably underrated as a prospect because of the Padres’ loaded system.
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: Bogaerts sells at $29 to Erickson.
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: (Gary Sanchez is up)
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] DVR: Is anybody here dropping their values on Red Sox bats with Mookie gone?
[Mar 14, 9:59 AM] Guest619: Cut to Liss throwing anything he can find at the wall
[Mar 14, 10:00 AM] DVR: Larry Schechter lands Sanchez at $16.
[Mar 14, 10:00 AM] DVR: (Springer on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:01 AM] DVR: In the last few years, Liss has become Happy Gilmore after Happy stopped throwing putters.
[Mar 14, 10:01 AM] Guest619: Tap tap tap-aroo
[Mar 14, 10:02 AM] DVR: (The Springer sale is being slightly delayed….the auction timer might have been accidentally pushed up to 3 mins from 20 or 30 seconds. He’s likely going for $29 to Gianella.)
[Mar 14, 10:02 AM] jwhits: same price as Bogarts? Seems high in that case.
[Mar 14, 10:03 AM] rotoman: Or Bogaerts low.
[Mar 14, 10:03 AM] DVR: They’re only a few cents apart in the AC
[Mar 14, 10:03 AM] DVR: I like Bogaerts a little bit better….even if there were no sign stealing scandal, I think we’d be looking at 2019 as Springer’s career year.
[Mar 14, 10:04 AM] jwhits: Bogarts Avg / obp though…his 2019 was massive too.
[Mar 14, 10:04 AM] DVR: (dad jokes)
[Mar 14, 10:04 AM] DVR: OK…Springer officially sold at $29
[Mar 14, 10:04 AM] DVR: (Giolito now up)
[Mar 14, 10:05 AM] DVR: Giolito sells for $24 to Patrick Davitt….
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] DVR: I’m slightly lighter than the market with Giolito….would have been in on Berrios for a couple bucks less, but probably more K ceiling with Giolito
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] DVR: (Sal Perez up)
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] rotoman: My prediction is that’s either a great price or a terrible one.
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] DVR: The real question: Who is your pick to be this year’s Lucas Giolito?
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] DVR: Bloomfield lands Salvador Perez at $12
[Mar 14, 10:06 AM] DVR: OBP drag, but pop + lineup position offset it.
[Mar 14, 10:07 AM] DVR: (Mondesi up….)
[Mar 14, 10:07 AM] rotoman: Glasnow seems like the fave. I’m not on that.
[Mar 14, 10:07 AM] DVR: Sold: $27 to Mike Podhorzer
[Mar 14, 10:07 AM] DVR: W/scarcity of steals, are you buying at that price, and just making sure you have 1-2 strong OBP sources to offset him?
[Mar 14, 10:07 AM] DVR: (Glasnow up)
[Mar 14, 10:08 AM] DVR: Erickson gets Glasnow at $23
[Mar 14, 10:08 AM] Guest619: That is a good price
[Mar 14, 10:08 AM] DVR: With expectations of a shortened season, IP risk arms are probably going to increase in price.
[Mar 14, 10:09 AM] DVR: (Charlie Morton up)
[Mar 14, 10:09 AM] DVR: Can’t wait to see the frenzy for Jesus Luzardo later.
[Mar 14, 10:09 AM] DVR: Collette buys Morton for $23.
[Mar 14, 10:09 AM] Guest619: People fanatically chasing Jesus. I’m here for it.
[Mar 14, 10:10 AM] DVR: (Carlos Santana is up)
[Mar 14, 10:10 AM] DVR: If you want terrible puns, please type into your chat window now.
[Mar 14, 10:10 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis buys Santana at $29….he’s definitely among the players whose value gets a big increase in this format.
[Mar 14, 10:10 AM] celslagerFL:
[Mar 14, 10:11 AM] Guest619:
[Mar 14, 10:11 AM] DVR: (Greinke is up.)
[Mar 14, 10:11 AM] DVR: Whoa, Greinke with a quick sell…$25 to Bloomfield.
[Mar 14, 10:11 AM] DVR: (Meadows up.)
[Mar 14, 10:12 AM] DVR: Bloomfield snatches Meadows from the jaws of the Gravy Boat at $29.
[Mar 14, 10:12 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis votes for Pedro with a $1 opening bid on Pedro Severino.
[Mar 14, 10:13 AM] DVR: Chris Liss hits +1 and gets him at $2.
[Mar 14, 10:13 AM] DVR: (Judge is up.)
[Mar 14, 10:13 AM] Guest214: What happened to Meadows?
[Mar 14, 10:13 AM] DVR: Liss gets Aaron Judge for $28.
[Mar 14, 10:14 AM] DVR: (Bloomfield got a $29 bid in on Meadows with a fraction of a second before the sold, Bender had him at $28.)
[Mar 14, 10:14 AM] DVR: (Paxton up…)
[Mar 14, 10:14 AM] DVR: Bloomfield gets James Paxton at $14.
[Mar 14, 10:14 AM] DVR: Somewhat surprised he didn’t get closer to $20.
[Mar 14, 10:14 AM] DVR: (Another closer is up….Aroldis Chapman)
[Mar 14, 10:15 AM] rotoman: Paxton depends on season start. If it’s July 1 that’s a good bet.
[Mar 14, 10:15 AM] DVR: Aroldis Chapman goes for $20 to Leibowitz.
[Mar 14, 10:15 AM] rotoman: Yes, $20 for a July start I mean.
[Mar 14, 10:15 AM] DVR: Currently $20 is the ceiling for top closers.
[Mar 14, 10:16 AM] rotoman: As it should be IMHO.
[Mar 14, 10:16 AM] DVR: Kiner-Falefa goes to Bender for $6
[Mar 14, 10:16 AM] DVR: (J.D. Martinez now on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:17 AM] DVR: J.D. Martinez goes for $33 to Collette
[Mar 14, 10:17 AM] DVR: Even with Betts gone, Martinez is one of the safest hitters in the pool, IMO
[Mar 14, 10:17 AM] DVR: Last of the projected $30+ bats to go, I believe.
[Mar 14, 10:17 AM] DVR: (R. Osuna on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] DVR: Gianella buys Osuna for $19
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] DVR: (The Luzardo frenzy has begun)
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] DVR: Will he reach $20?
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] Guest619: Jesus freaks
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] Guest619: Yes
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] DVR: Luzardo goes for $14 to Erickson
[Mar 14, 10:18 AM] DVR: One of the best pitching buys of the auction, so far, IMO.
[Mar 14, 10:19 AM] Guest619: I meant no.
[Mar 14, 10:19 AM] rotoman: Restrained. He went for 18 in CBS and 16 in LABR.
[Mar 14, 10:19 AM] DVR: Liss continues to publicly express his regrets about buying Verlander and Cole back to back to start the auction.
[Mar 14, 10:19 AM] DVR: (Bo Bichette is up)
[Mar 14, 10:19 AM] DVR: The entire room, realizing they let Erickson get a deal, is bidding aggressively…Bo up to $32….$33…..
[Mar 14, 10:20 AM] DVR: Patrick Davitt gets him at $33
[Mar 14, 10:20 AM] DVR: A win for Canada, really.
[Mar 14, 10:20 AM] rotoman: Home town price.
[Mar 14, 10:20 AM] DVR: (Jorge Polanco is up)
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] Jenny Butler: Buying Cole and Verlander sounds pretty good, but if everyone can only pitch 140 inn max, the pack will catch up to the super elite
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] DVR: ^^^^ Exactly
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] DVR: Polanco goes for $18 to Leibowitz.
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] DVR: (Carlos Correa is up)
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] DVR: Undervalued in snakes, but maybe (?) full freight here?
[Mar 14, 10:21 AM] rotoman: Are innings the differentiator?
[Mar 14, 10:22 AM] DVR: Not bad — Gianella gets Correa for $19
[Mar 14, 10:22 AM] Jenny Butler: It makes someone like Luzardo a lot closer
[Mar 14, 10:22 AM] DVR: (J. Abreu up for bidding)
[Mar 14, 10:22 AM] rotoman: Definitely means there will be some surprises.
[Mar 14, 10:23 AM] DVR: Colton/Wolf get Abreu for $25.
[Mar 14, 10:23 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis noms another catcher….James McCann, for $1
[Mar 14, 10:23 AM] rotoman: But the best can also run streaks for brilliance, even more brilliance.
[Mar 14, 10:23 AM] DVR: Liss gets him at $2.
[Mar 14, 10:23 AM] DVR: (Moncada on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:24 AM] DVR: Unofficial Nickname: Red Ink
[Mar 14, 10:24 AM] DVR: Moncada goes for $27 to Colton/Wolf
[Mar 14, 10:25 AM] DVR: (Kepler on the block…mentioned him earlier as a OBP bump guy, but he has some limitations with his approach.)
[Mar 14, 10:25 AM] DVR: Kepler sells at $20 to Colton/Wolf
[Mar 14, 10:25 AM] DVR: Right in line with expectations, IMO, in terms of price
[Mar 14, 10:25 AM] DVR: (Stanton on the block…)
[Mar 14, 10:25 AM] Jenny Butler: Sorry I’m late to the party. How does each auction end? Does each nomination have a clock?
[Mar 14, 10:26 AM] DVR: Stanton goes at $23 to Gravy Boat
[Mar 14, 10:26 AM] DVR: Yup, each player has a 20 second countdown after being nominated
[Mar 14, 10:26 AM] DVR: it resets to 10 sec after each bid
[Mar 14, 10:27 AM] DVR: Jorge Soler goes to Colton/Wolf for $26….they’re spending a lot suddenly
[Mar 14, 10:27 AM] DVR: (Liam Hendriks on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:27 AM] Guest619: Liss should have a trade partner for Verlander in Gionella
[Mar 14, 10:27 AM] DVR: Gianella swoops in to buy at $16.
[Mar 14, 10:28 AM] DVR: (Matt Chapman up)
[Mar 14, 10:28 AM] jwhits: BO for more than Bogarts? Are things getting crazy or is that justified??
[Mar 14, 10:28 AM] Bill the Thrill: These prices are very much deflated compared to my AL-only keeper league. No inflation here whatsoever…
[Mar 14, 10:28 AM] DVR: Chapman goes for $25 to Liss
[Mar 14, 10:29 AM] DVR: (Arraez now up)
[Mar 14, 10:29 AM] DVR: I think Arraez has some similarities to Jeff McNeil….in that org especially, maybe we get a power bump?
[Mar 14, 10:29 AM] DVR: Erickson pays $13 for Arraez to find out.
[Mar 14, 10:29 AM] rotoman: That’s a lot of cheese for Colton and Wolf from the AL Central.
[Mar 14, 10:29 AM] DVR: (Eloy Jimenez is up)
[Mar 14, 10:30 AM] Jenny Butler: If you’re going to do that, the central is the place to do it
[Mar 14, 10:30 AM] DVR: Doug Dennis gets Eloy Jimenez for $24
[Mar 14, 10:30 AM] jwhits: Sorry….Bo for more than Bogarts?? Is that for real?
[Mar 14, 10:30 AM] Guest619: Was that Chapman price a bit steep? You
[Mar 14, 10:30 AM] DVR: (Justin Upton is on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:31 AM] DVR: Thought Chapman was full price
[Mar 14, 10:31 AM] DVR: Upton goes for $19 to Larry Schechter
[Mar 14, 10:31 AM] rotoman: Chapman was 25 in LABR too.
[Mar 14, 10:31 AM] DVR: (A short break for coffee, SXM interviews)
[Mar 14, 10:35 AM] DVR: Timing of nominations in auctions is important to consider.
[Mar 14, 10:36 AM] DVR: Eventually, you have a realization that there aren’t many players in a particular tier/category/position left, and you’ll end up with a little bit too much money later if you don’t pay up for somone.
[Mar 14, 10:36 AM] Guest214: Any idea if the draft is over or under total projected player cost so far?
[Mar 14, 10:37 AM] DVR: I haven’t been able to run through software while chatting, but my estimation would be that it’s pretty close to even.
[Mar 14, 10:37 AM] DVR: Just based on mix of individual overs and unders we’ve seen so far.
[Mar 14, 10:41 AM] Guest2020: Long live 4X4 Roto with OBP!
[Mar 14, 10:46 AM] DVR: In an attempt to get the bid bar visible so you can see who is up as it’s happening, and I can provide a little more analysis than play by play….
[Mar 14, 10:47 AM] Callen Elslager: I forget are you in any of the other drafts coming up
[Mar 14, 10:47 AM] DVR: I’m in the mixed auction this afternoon.

[Mar 14, 10:55 AM] rotoman: Solak is an interesting play.
[Mar 14, 10:55 AM] DVR: (Eddie Rosario is on the block now)
[Mar 14, 10:56 AM] DVR: Solak can play enough spots capably…the PT will be there.
[Mar 14, 10:56 AM] DVR: Calhoun’s injury might keep him out even longer than the delayed start to the season.
[Mar 14, 10:56 AM] DVR: (Mallex Smith on the block)
[Mar 14, 10:56 AM] DVR: I think he makes a lot more sense here, than in a mixed league.
[Mar 14, 10:56 AM] rotoman: Agree/
[Mar 14, 10:57 AM] DVR: (Chris Sale is up)
[Mar 14, 10:57 AM] DVR: Mallex went for $20, BTW.

[Mar 14, 11:01 AM] rotoman: That seems a good risk on Carrasco.
[Mar 14, 11:01 AM] DVR: (Sano on the block)
[Mar 14, 11:02 AM] DVR: Sano goes for $23 to Leibowitz….would you pay same/more/less for Gallo?
[Mar 14, 11:02 AM] DVR: (Yuli Gurriel now on the block)
[Mar 14, 11:02 AM] rotolady: Good Morning Fellas, and Lady 🙂
[Mar 14, 11:02 AM] rotoman: Morning Andrea
[Mar 14, 11:03 AM] DVR: Gurriel goes for $16 to Leibowitz….interesting that Kyle Tucker was getting reps at first base this spring.

[Mar 14, 11:04 AM] DVR: (Danny Santana is up…)
[Mar 14, 11:05 AM] DVR: Collette gets him at $14….can he play CF well enough to have a position to call his own this season?

[Mar 14, 11:09 AM] DVR: (Brandon Workman is up)
[Mar 14, 11:10 AM] DVR: $11 to Podhorzer on Workman…what’s the general trust level with him?
[Mar 14, 11:10 AM] DVR: (Giles on the block)

[Mar 14, 11:11 AM] DVR: Giles goes for $22 — ceiling broken.
[Mar 14, 11:11 AM] DVR: (Reese McGuire up)
[Mar 14, 11:11 AM] Callen Elslager: Think it’s because he was the final higher end option in this format?

[Mar 14, 11:27 AM] DVR: Minor goes for $13 to Doug Dennis

[Mar 14, 11:59 AM] DVR: (Jose Urquidy on the block)
[Mar 14, 11:59 AM] DVR: I think McCullers was a problem player if the full 162 schedule was going to happen, but without it, where his limited IP comes from is less of a concern.
