Not sure I'd pay that much for Kinsler, but I also think the prices here are low.

I think this also has something to do with slotting. I do not slot position spending before the auction, and I am not a fan of doing it. It seems to me that this is a recipe to overpay, particularly for a guy like Kinsler. "Oh, no, the last guy in the $20s tier at 2B, and I need a 2B...I have to pay for him until I get him." Whoops - I have him at $29.

I wonder about prices like that, Peter, if it says more about the mindset of people who missed out the consensus #1 guy at the position, than it does on the player itself. In other words, if Cano wasn't such a "safe bet", would everyone else feel as compelled to gamble on the Kinslers and Pedroias? [/rambling]

In Tout Wars he went for $29. In LABR for $28. Looks like you're going to have to pay in advance for the upside.

His value depends on his legs. If he steals he'll be worth close to $30. If not, he's worth $22 max. I'd rather not be the guy who bids upside.

I am always interested in pricing for players coming off disappointing years. Peter obviously has faith in a complete bounce back to 2009 levels. What do you think his natural H% level is? He's the most inconsistent hitter I've ever seen. Maybe that's the life a flyball hitter.
