But if Iglesias is your third Middle Infielder then the profits are better than gambling on somebody who once stole 32 bases in A-ball. In the end game, you're not filling your roster with Iglesias so that you can't get Bogaerts. It's more like Iglesias versus Dewal Lugo.

I agree Eugene. I think he's a clear example of the danger of our roto prices. Yes, he's been a consistent earner and will probably do much the same this year, but he doesn't have much power and given his success rate shouldn't run as much as he does. Plus his batting average was high last year, he's more of a .265 hitter. If you can get him for less than $5 he can round out a deep roto roster, but even if he "earns" $12 next year, having him blocks you from getting someone with more potential. 

In the Guide I have him at $10 for this year, but I'll revise that downward. Not all profits are equal.

Two years ago he didn't go in Tout. He earned $15. Last year he earned $16. Now, he's with the Orioles on a one year deal. I can see him go for $3-4 in the end game as the last full-time MI, but at a lower price than many part timers.  

I'm not going to guarantee he's going to earn between $11-16, but he sure looks like he's pretty consistent.  Look at the 5 year record.  I see him as safe player to earn a nice profit.

In early November, I wrote, "Jose will get a very nice, but not crazy nice, three-year contract this winter."

Two months later I'd like to amend that: he'll be thrilled to get a nice one-year contract.
