My 2013 Tout Wars Mixed League Auction Values Cheatsheet (Shhh!)

Auction values for Tout Wars

The 2013 Tout Wars Mixed League auction action happens this Saturday afternoon! … Did you just piddle with excitement? I have a ton of work to do before then, including my dollar values and my rankings for this 15-team Rotisserie league.

So today, I’m posting my initial rankings and auction values that I’ll be tweaking as we get closer. Our league uses OBP instead of batting average, which is a new swith this season. I still have to make some adjustments to my rankings for that.

As for my dollar values, these are based on several things, including my rankings, last year’s auction prices in this league and a budget based on $180 for hitting and $80 for pitching. Last year, the league was quite tentative and … well, cheap. I expect it to be a little different this year because people saw how many bargains came off the board when they still had money to toy with.

Cory Schwartz, Auction Values

MLB.com’s Cory Schwartz (@SchwartzStops) got to take a ceremonial Yoo Hoo shower after winning the 2012 Tout Wars Mixed League title. (#jealous)

This listing is rough, with some player names abbreviated to fit my spreadsheet, or just the one name used, and in some cases, I don’t have all of the players’ eligibility listed. (I do for players I intend on buying, however.)

But Gonos, you say, why would you show your rankings to the world!?! Don’t you know that your opponents probably have the Internet!?! They could steal your signs!

I say to you, good reader, that writers are upstanding guys and they would never stoop so low! Plus, I’ve finished like seventh, eighth and ninth in the past three years. Who would want to copy that? HOORAY!!!

Plus, these days, writers have waaaaay too much going on with their own sites to bother looking at other writers’ auction values … And the ones that would look, I’m pretty sure can’t read anyway. OOOOOHHH!!!!!!! SNAP!!!!!!!

(I did win Tout Wars back in 2008, the last year it was just 12 owners — and before Eric Mack joined. He’s like my unlucky charm.)

Speaking of Tout Wars, make sure you check out the crazy stories of both the 2008 draft weekend and the weird 2012 draft that involved an Oscar-nominated actor. (No, not Humphrey Bogart.)
