Lots of Orange at Camden Yards tonight. Reminds me of living downtown Baltimore and going to games in 1996-1998. The scalp free zone was a boon to poor law school students.

Of course we had to pay scalper prices to the playoffs. I'm hoping to have that opportunity again this year.

Wieters has four DH starts this year after three all of last year. In other words, Buck finally figured out that it's okay to use your best players as much as possible. And Wieters is locked into the No. 5 slot in the order - last April, he almost exclusively batted *eighth!* Oh, Bucky.

The last one I saw was after I took the bus downtown and saw Joe Sparma pitch one of the games. So awhile ago.

An old-fashioned single-admission double header is about to get underway in Camden Yards. When's the last time we saw one of those?

In the AL this year Mauer, Napoli and Avila are bubbling under $20, and Santana is well north of it.

In the NL McCann's virtue is that he earns nearly $20 every year. And there is Posey, there, too.

Molina and Montero earned $20 last year, but that's probably peak.

This is a fairly broad group with no obvious high peak, because V-Mart is out and Napoli is unlikely to repeat. But when the third tier guys are so weak I think it's better not to skimp on one of the big boys than to hope and pay for Tyler Flowers' year.

Feel safe taking a loss if you have a very good keeper list in terms of value. You need to add production not value. If your list is just okay you need value.

I guess my question is, as it pertains to position scarcity, do you go into your auction OK with taking a loss on a player?

Based on the info Mike provided below, should we think 5 AL catchers could possibly earn $20 this year? Again, no V-Mart and Mauer in Target field.

I am just trying to understand if my valuation of catchers is off. I would never pay $20 for a catcher not named Brian McCann.

And don't forget position scarcity. If you spend $19 and he earns "only" $18 at the end of the season, according to the retrospective formulas, you've done okay. You really shouldn't complain.

If your $19 first baseman earns $18, you aren't happy.
