    Curious what you think Sale is worth in an 18 team keeper league then? With the inflation described previously in the thread I think $51 is reasonable.

    Prices from last year for SP over $30: Kershaw 51, Carrasco 37, CMartinez 35, Archer 33, Darvish 34, Keuchel 31, Tanaka 30

    (This is why I think Greinke is worth keeping also.)

    But it's true that we have a fairly restrictive salary cap so Trout might actually be more valuable post-auction. The cap is what revo said below, so the $50ish players really only get dealt if the team acquiring them had injuries that made them give up their expensive players.

    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    FYI, the cap in RJEL is $40 over starting budget for April before increasing to $100 by June 1.

    I think Alonso is the one to drop. I don't see a problem keeping Stanton and Sale with that good of a keeper list. Basically, you are pre-draft shopping, but that is what you do when you have a good keeper list---it avoids the danger of a crazy auction that leaves you without what you need. If that other team has some high-priced talent, I would definitely advise that team to keep it as well. If the rest of your keeper list was a mess, you don't keep either---you want draft chaos in that situation. Just keep those, get a couple of more studs at auction and target the bargains you want. You have such a high floor as a team with that keeper list.

    Based on initial analysis, there will not be a lot of top starters available so I fully expect them to go for a premium (which is why I'm leaning to the $37 Carrasco as my last keeper). Sale won't go for less than that unless his arm barks during spring.
