Albers and Kintzler make me nervous.  Albers sort of came out of nowehere last year.  Kintlzler doesn't miss bats at all.  And they're both in their mid-30s.  I would give them 1 year deals for reasonable amounts, but if another team wants to overpay...I wouldn't get in a bidding war.
Well, no, Alberts didn't come out of nowhere, but since he'd been toiling on bad teams, and last year was bad, he was just under the radar. Since 2012, he'd been very good except for 2016. Kintzler's been solid for several years now, too. I'm not saying sign to 4/60 deals but for next year, I'd be fine with both of them for a year. Maybe even two.
