Well there are many different strategies on how to approach this auction and this league and who's to say which way is best. One thing I knew for sure was for me to have the most fun I can, I have to have at least 2 or 3 superstars that are my favorite. That's where Kershaw and Braun come in,
Kershaw is my favorite sim and fantasy pitcher and at age 24 the most valuable. It was a NO brainer to go after him hard. He is just as good as Verlander right now and 5 years younger. The only other pitcher that is close by age is Stephen Strasburg but Kershaw has proven it a lot longer. And I have Kershaw as long as I like, not just 5 years
I'm thrilled to get Kershaw at 207, I don't understand how somebody thought he would go for less than the highest bid which was 183, but I can understand someone not wanting to spend that.
