I had a REAL tough decision on what to bid on Stanton this week. On one hand, I had the most FAAB and was assured of getting him for $43 (the next highest owner's FAAB $). On the other hand, the 3rd highest FAAB was $28, and I thought I had a chance to get him at a pretty decent bargain price for the next 3 years.

Complicating matters somewhat is that the 2nd highest FAAB $ belonged to one of the teams fighting it out for the championship, AND, as of this moment, he is literally tied with the 2nd place team in home runs, Stanton could be THE guy that wins him the title this year.

So, $43 definitely gets him, but I want to get him at a good price to keep him for several years. But if I don't bid the full $43, I risk losing him altogether. So, what do I bid?

I ended up posing my question on Reddit, figuring one or two die-hard guys could give me advice. Turns out dozens of people responded, and most of them really thoughtfully responded.

If anyone would like to see the discussion that ensued on my Stanton dilemma, you can find the whole thing here:


Reddit Discussion on Palin's Stanton bid.


Oh, by the way, Todd ended up bidding $32 to my $36.
