Welcome! You are invited to wander around and read all of the comments that have been posted here at Patton & Co., but as soon as you register you can see the bid limits that Alex, Peter and Mike propose for each player, and you can post your own comments. Registering is free, so please join us!

The "G" is for guaranteed - probably a redundancy in "guaranteed long term contract" that held on from the original Roto rules.  In my home league, you have to pay the player as long as they're under contract or buy out 1/2 the remaining money (from your available auction cash) in the deal to get out of it.  The deal adds $5 escalating for every year of the contract (thus a player signed at $9 in 2015 would have his contract go to $14 in 2016 and $19 in 2017).  An "option" adds $5 or 20% of a player's current contract (whichever is higher) and you toss the player back after that year.  Players taken in the 7-round reserve draft can be retained in following years for the same round pick if they still maintain official rookie status - otherwise their team is awarded Toppers with a 20% discount.  That's how I got Rendon, and the bidding in 2014 died at $12, so I Topped him at $9.

 As Rotoman points out, Rendon's injury history is mainly what's giving me pause with the LTC.  Not only does he seem brittle - he seems like one of those dreaded "slow healers".  Plus, with leg problems the SB have disappeared.  The 2B/3B eligibility is a nice perk though.

I think my projected line looks pretty good, except another year of injury (and his college history) suggests maybe he's a bit fragile. I certainly wouldn't let him go for less than $20 in either format. And I would expect him to climb back up to $25 or so. At that point he's a push.

BB - what's the "G" in "GLTC"?  I'm assuming "LTC" = Long Term Contract ...

Not a single comment since the season started says a lot.  Finally coming around a bit lately, but his numbers look a lot more like 2013 than 2014.  Will he ever reach that rarified air again?  Big dilemma for me this off-season: Option or GLTC?

Mr. Consistency last year - 10 HR/9 SB/.289 at home ... 11 HR/8 SB/.285 on the road

13 HR/8 SB/.287 first half

8 HR/9 SB/.287 second half

And in CBS they expect that consistency to continue, betting $30 on a repeat (or exceedance) of last season.
