Ron Shandler wasted no time in nominating Alex Rodriguez, who Lawr Michaels landed at $25. If ARod comes back to form in early May, as they are hoping he will, this risk could pay off for Lawr, who also added CC Sabathia ($30) and Joe Nathan ($26).
The team of Rick Wolf/Glenn Colton came to spend, as they have already spent over $150 on 5 of the top hitters. Mark Teixeira ($37) was one of them, who surprisingly went for only $1 less than Miguel Cabrera ($38).
As Matthew Berry continued to poke fun at Sam Walker, he then nominated a previously selected Justin Morneau ($30). Walker wasted no time in returning the favor.
Twins catcher, Joe Mauer was taken for $14, a discount due to the injury concerns. Another risky play that could end up helping or hurting Joe Sheehan, who also selected the semi-healthy BJ Upton ($34).
