    I'd probably keep Eddie and extend him a year, Mazara also extend for a year, Greinke, Bradley, probably Iglasias, and most likely Hernandez.

    I agree with Horns with the exception I would keep Swanson for 2 bucks as well.

    yeah that's not good. Rosario, Mazara, Greinke, Iglesias, Glasnow, Bradley. Could be argued into Dominguez over Iglesias or Greinke.
    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.

    I know the mantra is buy skills, not roles, but I really worry about what role Dominguez may have this season. But it would save you money...OTOH, Greinke is a mid-season trade chip if you're falling out of contention.

    No one likes Newcomb? I know he fell apart a bit at the end of the year, but I was thinking that was just stamina from his first year in the majors... more to it than that?

    Feels like there are several similar pitchers you can get in the $1-$3 range in a 15 team mixed, I wouldn't waste a keeper spot on Newcomb, especially not at a $5 pricetag.

    Yep.

    You can get him back with new contract if you really need to have him on your roster. Pre-auction not using a spot.
