Bonerfacio will be good for at least 40 SB this season.

i've got a couple of big upside question mark guys - Ackley and Jennings.  If they have the years they should have, I'm good.  Austin Jackson looks like he might rebound a bit as well.

I have a dilemma. I have Gardner at $33 in my super deep AL 4x4 dynasty league.  That's darn expensive, but for 45 steals in the bank before the draft, I'm not sure I cannot hold him.  I have Zobrist (10), Adam jones (26), and Josh Hamilton (at either 25 or 30 if I want to hold him for 2 years) as my other position player keepers, so a little splurge on Gardner makes some sense.  Most of the big base stealers (Ellsbury, Crisp, Andrus, off the top of my head) are locked up.

If you put him back into the auction, how much will he go for?
Can you buy him back cheaper? If so, do that. If not, keep him.

look at the LA Dodgers SS for cheap steals, or maybe bonifacio.   I'm guessing Gardner will lead-off most of the year for NY though.

Alright, are we doing ESPN or Yahoo this year?

We need to get the ball rolling on this thing sooner rather than later.

Imref - AL only, unless you meant LAA and Aybar.

commish - tough call on what his auction price would be.  i would not have bid 33 last year, but i had Ellsbury at 20 at the time.  Crisp went for mid-20s coming off an injury.  .  My normal philosophy on steals is to go for multiple stealers, and if i can steal a pinch runner as my MI I do it.  It's become tough, even though steals are up in the AL.  Ichiro and Crawford are available for pretty likely 25+ stealers.  Maybe I toss Gardner back and take that money and then some for Ichiro.

pm me if you want to join, if we get less than 10, I'll deepen benches and add more position players. If people don't like setting (that's why I posted them), speak up, I'll change anything it seems like a majority don't like. I put a draft date of Sunday, April 1 at 7:45

I added enough so that anyone who wants in can get in - excess teams will be deleted prior to the draft

Roto is scoring against everyone for the whole season as opposed to one person weekly, date isn't set in stone (I think?)

I'd give it a shot but I'd have to auto-draft if the draft was on a Sunday.

I prefer auction but I don't want to change it on my account - I will join if it stays roto and you have an auction draft.

Yeah, but anything over like 12 is ridic.  Shouldn't we just have multiple leagues or something?
