The Fisher Catamounts had lots of hitting (Braun, Harper, Bruce, Ike Davis, Pierre) and closers (Chapman, Betancourt) and no starting pitching going in....so starters were the goal, and we knew we'd have to take some risks because Greinke was going to just cost too much. We also needed a good MI and ended up with Pennington, so probably a failure there.

C--Ruiz ($6) and Kratz ($1)
CR--I.Davis $21, G. Jones $9, E.Chavez $3
MI--Solano $2, Pennington $9, Forsythe $6
OF--Braun $44, Harper $25, Bruce $28, Pierre $10, Nix $1
UT--Guzman $3
SP--Halladay $20, Garcia $14, S.Miller $19, Corbin $5, Capuano $5 (boy do I wish we had Dickey and Worley still)
RP--Bass $2, Marshall $1, Betancourt $5, Chapman $17

Reserves---Campana, Marisnick, McKenry, Brignac, Rauch, C.Young, Pill, A.Vizcaino, Baez

I think we'll contend. But then, I always think that. So who knows. But the Bryce & Bruce and Braun show will be fun.

The Brubaker Yeasts' 2013 Line-up

Bought at draft

2B Justin Turner $1
OF A.J. Pollock $4
OF Kirk Niewenhuis $2

P Brandon Beachy $7
P Andrew Cashner $8
P Ted Lilly $3
p Mark Melancon $8

SS Josh Rutledge $4
3B Ryan Zimmerman $29
MI Ruben Tejada $1
CI Brandon Belt $16
OF Domonic Brown $15
OF Adam Eaton $5
OF Dexter Fowler $18

P Ian Kennedy $4
P Paul Maholm $2

Reserve Draft
Casey Kotchman
Matt Davidson
Gary Brown
Kyle Parker
Yasiel Puig

Tyler Cloyd
Kyle Crick
Zach Lee
Jason Marquis
Mark Rogers


Don't think I hurt my chances with my draft. Really need Jansen and/or Melancon to become the closer. Beachy, Cashner and Lilly have good upside and fit well with my pitching keepers.

Brantly solidifies catching and Pollock helps to ease the hit that Eaton's injury had during the preseason. Will be looking to upgrade MI and Utility throughout the year and hope that a couple of offensive reserve picks can contribute this year.

The auction was interesting due to the inflation (around 45%), but I have dealt with that before so I thought I was prepared. I believe I was the last owner to buy a player, as most guys went past my inflation price. I had $90 to spend on 11 players....it was a tough auction to buy a stud (I bid $38 on David Wright, but he went to $39 and I just could not bring myself to bid $40). When I realized getting a stud was not going to happen, I sat back and waited to try end up with as many starting position players as possible. Here is what I ended up with:

C Brian McCann $16
1B Gaby Sanchez $4
MI Luis Cruz $10
CI Chris Nelson $12
OF Collin Cowgill $11 (that one killed me, but I needed to spend my money)
MI/CO/OF Brent Lillibridge $3
MI Adeiny Hechavarria $7
P Wandy Rodriguez $14
P Josh Collmenter $2
P Travis Wood $5
P Wily Peralta $4

Was able to get Albert Almora, Jacob Turner, Trevor Story and Noah Syndergaard in the reserve rounds so hope I can move them in a deal.
I had an Ok freeze list, so hope I can trade one or two of them.

I had a decent freeze list so hope this auction can keep me in the running.

Nope ... no list for auction like that. You'd have to keep your own and it just moves too fast.

Draft results are here ...

... including all our "chat" comments. But ... hmmm ... I'm not seeing a way to see the draft results in the order it happened (ie. above link shows team-by-team results) ... anyone know if a chrono record is available?

Andy, interesting, thanks. No question that PCL dynamics played a part in my willingness to pay these premiums. Right or wrong I thought I had okay hitting, not great, not horrible, and I was going to buy pitching no matter what (I had the money to do so). Only time will tell if spreading Greinke money around on two SP would have been better. I think Uggla was a fair price, I had clicked at 18 in price enforcing mode but I must have clicked after the 18 bidder so I was stuck with 19. I like Uggla (see my 24 bid year one) but had hoped to spend that money on something else. But, knowing me, I will open the trade doors as soon as Carpenter gets a game in at 2B.

Noah,

I believe I had Uggla at $18, Greinke at $31, and Soriano at $33 on my sheet.

My Soriano price was based on past experience in the PCL, and a HUGE part of it was supply and demand.

For me, I knew there was no way I'd own Soriano, I just judged the market would pay more than you did. In other words, in my opinion at least, based on the givens of the PCL pre-auction, I think Soriano was a bargain.
