I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Masahiro Tanaka with a price of $11. What do you think?

As I had listed my pitching staff below in April, I must honestly report that we scratched and scrounged our way to 27.5 pitching points (12-man AL-only 4x4), and will finish 5th.    I'm not ashamed of that.  We finished the year with 6 of those 9 pitchers, and we dumped Boyd, McHugh, and Salazar at various points . . . Boyd, of course, before he straightened out.

He had a great game last night.  As a steady-as-she-goes type pitcher, he doesn't have many-ups-and-downs throughout the season.  At the end, he earns his money despite feeling like a disappointment at various points.  Meanwhile others zoom past him in the rankings and then fall back.  That said, you have to be a patient owner with Tanaka.  Especially when he goes on the DL for running the bases.

I would guess ours isn't normally much more than that, overall.  And the inflation dollars get distributed VERY unequally in the auction.  If a guy is a target for three or four teams?  Whoa, there goes 10 bucks of your inflation . . .

Same contract length in the 4x4 ADL, with a maximum of seven keepers for teams finishing fourth through ninth, going down to four for the first and last place teams.

Result: a wide open auction with (this year) nine percent inflation.

We only have two-year contracts, which limits inflation -- but you have a topper on expiring contracts.  I would say typical split, hitting/pitching, is around 180/80.  AL-only, 12 teams, 4x4.

Mike-Curious to get a few more details about your league, for reference sake. Hitter/Pitcher $ split? Limited inflation? Thanks.

I can't quarrel with any of these. I really wanted Matt Boyd in the end game and had a whopping $2 to spend.

Somebody else had three.

Since I'm occupying the comments with my own results, here's the whole pitching staff; feel free to mock.

Tanaka $18

Archer $19

Shane Greene $11

Joe Jimenez $3

David Robertson $5 

Matt Boyd $1

Lance Lynn $8

Collin McHugh $4

Danny Salazar $9

For a neat, traditional, $78. Only McHugh was kept.
