Oh, I'm with Mike and Alex here. Scherzer could put up a $30 season in 4x4, but a $10 season isn't hard to see either. I don't remember what my bid limit was in CBS expert, but I think it was $17 and he went for $22 to the Baseball HQ rep Tom Kephart.

yes Mike. These are pessimistic, or perhaps cautious. His last spring start was splendid :)

That said, all anyone sees is how he responded to the demotion, and more than a few probably recall how Roy Halladay emerged as an ace after a demotion(though he had to work back from A-ball).
Either you believe, or you watch from the sidelines for a while. At his prices, that seems the judicious play.

Based on the expert league prices , these ARE the safe bids.

Love him to pieces, but the bid seems a bit high for someone who's never thrown 200 innings in a big league season. That said, others won't be as reasonable and based on potential I don't think $18 gets him.
