Something I am sure more than just myself was wondering about. Thought you had some insider information that you were trading off!

It was a mistake. I set the bids early in the day with every intention of coming back in the evening to fine tune them. I was out all day, had a party to go to, and then what was supposed to be cocktails with friends turned into dinner. It got late, I had to rush to get bids in for Tout Wars, and I never got back to the PCL.

The good news is that I got individual emails this morning about all the Oracles purchases, so I didn't have to go to CBS to learn of my blunder.

The Other Oracle dropped him in the PCL. Flat-out dropped him!

Notes
06.26... Aaron Nola was lit up for five earned runs over 3 1/3 innings Sunday in the Phillies' loss to the Giants.
Spin: Nola didn't walk anybody, but he did hit three Giants batters, again struggling with his command in the no-decision. Those HBPs eventually yielded a retaliatory HBP from San Francisco starter Johnny Cueto. Nola got off to a tremendous start this season, but he's clearly not in a good place right now and should have already been benched in standard fantasy leagues. His next scheduled matchup is a start at home against the Royals.

Yes to the strikeouts.

Notwithstanding his last start, looks like he will earn $15 plus this year. The boost in strike outs has been huge.

I saved my pre-auction sheet from last year in the PCL. I had Carlos Martinez as one of my highlighted guys, meaning I really wanted him. So much so, that I jacked his price up to $12 to make sure I would stand a good chance of getting him. I said $12, and someone else said $13 and then I flinched.

I say all this because I think 2015 Carlos Martinez is a decent 'what's gonna happen in a PCL auction' comp for Aaron Nola.

In my 11 team start-from-scratch NL only league, I have Nola's price at $11. But we live in Pa, so I'm sure there's a buck or two Phillie bias baked in there.
EDIT: This is not a keeper league, and I usually nail what-they'll-go-for prices.

If you think Nola is decent, with some potential, I'd consider throwing him back. Having an extra free pitching spot is usually a bonus. However, if you think he is really good, you can't expose him, you've got to lock him up.

I think you get him back between $10-$12 and you re-set the clock.  Tossed him back in a league with big inflation at $13.

Adding on to the discussion of the Stage Four thread, a real life example. In the PCL we are chewing over whether to keep Nola at $10. If we do so we'll be overpaying a few dollars (expert league prices $11, $6, $9) this year, on the assumption that we'll have a bargain next year. (He's keepable at $10 in 2017, too, or extendable then.)

But will he be $7 in a league with inflation? He could go for $10 this year, especially because that will lock in his price for 2017 and 2018, too.

I'm leaning toward keeping him, and appreciate all unselfish suggestions from leaguemates.
