2013 Draft Prep: American League Rotisserie auction

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Our AL-only auction had as many participants, as many roster spots to fill and as shallow of a player pool as our NL-only auction just a couple days earlier. But it had a different feel to it.

Granted, that's to be expected when the personnel changes. The cast for this one was as follows ...

1. Tim McLeod, RotoRob
2. Scott White, CBSSports.com
3. Jeff Boggis, FantasySportsEmpires.com
4. Greg Morgan, Mastersball.com
5. Grey Albright, Razzball
6. Al Melchior, CBSSports.com
7. Derek Carty, DerekCarty.com
8. Keith Cromer, Patton & Co
9. Nando Di Fino, CBSSports.com
10. Dean Peterson, Stats LLC
11. Mike Kuchera, FanDuel.com
12. Mike Gianella, Baseball Prospectus

Still, the differing approaches also say something about the two player pools.

The owners as a whole left more money on the table in this auction. A lot more. We're talking double-digit dollars for some. Obviously, that's not the goal. Any money unspent is money wasted. So why did it happen? The distribution of talent from start to finish caught some owners by surprise.

While the AL is heavy in elite talent, allowing players such as Jose Bautista, Evan Longoria, Adrian Beltre, Dustin Pedroia and Ian Kinsler to go for less than $30, it's light in the mid-level talent -- the Rickie Weeks, Andre Ethier and Adam LaRoche types -- that fill the bulk of NL-only rosters. Yeah, you'll find some decent players in the $15-20 range -- such as Nick Markakis, Michael Morse and Nelson Cruz -- but not enough for you to build a team on them. Stashing away money for the later stages will more likely stick you with a roster full of Matt Joyce and Trevor Plouffe types.

Of course, the AL-only pool is fairly deep in those lower-end types, allowing for such bargains as Mitch Moreland at $4, Ervin Santana at $4 and Josh Donaldson at $1. But at that point in the auction, enough people have already spent enough money that the prices go only so high for the ones who haven't.

Not everyone was as committed to getting a closer in this auction as the NL-only version even though the closer crop is equally thin in both leagues. While the NL-only owners placed a premium on closers, investing $14-19 in just about all of them, several AL closers fell short of that range. Having gotten shut out on the closer front in the NL-only auction, I felt pretty good getting Jim Johnson at $15 early in this one. In the end, though, I would have rather had the $3 I could have saved on Joel Hanrahan or Glen Perkins.

A few other observations ...

I'm not really sure what happened with Jose Reyes, who ended up tying Justin Verlander as the fourth-most expensive player at $34. The demand for some of the lower-end steals specialists wasn't at all that high, and shortstop, at least relative to second and third base, is fairly deep in the AL.

The R.A. Dickey skeptics are more likely to show themselves in deeper leagues, where whiffing on a pick could be catastrophic. While seemingly lesser pitchers like Yu Darvish, Max Scherzer and Chris Sale went for more than $20, Dickey went for $18 -- one less than Brett Anderson.

Alex Rodriguez went for $3. Yes, in an AL-only league. How the mighty have fallen.

The Ernesto Frieri bid came well after all the true closers had gone off the board and when one owner in particular still had an insane amount of money to spend. Safe to say he won't go for $2 more than Joe Nathan in most leagues.

Some of the more reliable non-strikeout pitchers got the cold shoulder in this auction, with Mark Buehrle going for $4 and Jason Vargas going for $3. Look, they'll still give you more strikeouts than a middle reliever would. They're worth purchasing at that price for the wins alone.

Editor's note: Utilize the sortable functionality to get a sense of the auction. View by team, dollar amount and position.

The 84 players that show up as $0 bids were selected in the seven-round reserve draft that immediately followed the auction.

Odrisamer Despaigne allows one run in no-decision Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne wasn't a factor in Tuesday's decision after giving up one earned run on four hits in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Despaigne was excellent for much of the outing, but three of his four singles were concentrated in the fourth inning, providing the Diamondbacks with a run and preventing Despaigne from earning a win. He owns a 3.06 ERA and 54:25 K:BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings. Despaigne is scheduled to face the Rockies in Colorado Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one earned run on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 2-1 loss to the Padres.

Miley was sharp Tuesday, needing just 85 pitches to complete seven innings and surrendering only one extra-base hit. However, his offense couldn't provide him the support needed for a win. Miley owns a 4.18 ERA and 168:64 K:BB ratio in 183 innings. He's scheduled to face the Dodgers Sunday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:42 am ET) Orioles pitcher Zach Britton picked up his 32nd save Tuesday against the Reds.

Britton entered with a one-run lead, and managed to make things interesting. After picking up a ground out to start the inning, Britton put men on first and third after giving up a double and a single. With the tying run 90 feet away, Britton managed to pick up a game-ending double-play. The play was reviewed, and the call was upheld, ending the game.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:38 am ET) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris picked up a win Tuesday against the Reds.

Norris allowed four hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out seven and walked one during the outing. Despite the strong start, Norris never flirted with the no-hitter. Billy Hamilton singled to open the game, ending that possibility. Norris was able to pitch around the single, not giving up any runs. A fielding error put two men on base in the third inning, but that was the closest the Reds would come to scratching a run across against Norris.

With the win, Norris improved to 12-8. He'll take on the Rays in his next start.
