"Don't Pay For Saves" is a popular view among many fantasy experts. Closers have been flying off the board here so far, possibly for less money than you'd expect. After Papelbon ($28), Soria ($28), Nathan ($26), and Rivera ($25), there seems to be a decent drop off in closer value. During a short break, Dean Peterson noted that since the DPFS mantra seems to be in effect by many, there could be some extra money flying around.
Starting pitchers have also come at some surprise values, with Josh Beckett getting stolen at $21 by Steve Moyer (Beckett went for $25 in my FantasyPros expert league on Wednesday). John Lackey was taken for $18 after the news that he may not be ready for opening day. Other notable SP's taken: AJ Burnett ($20), Dice-K ($19), David Price ($10), James Shields ($23), Scott Baker ($19), and Cliff Lee ($19), and Francisco Liriano ($21).
I really like the way Moyer has filled out his staff, with Lee, Baker, and Beckett at decent prices. He can now build around those three guys with some cheap starters and maybe a closer.
Ron Shandler has addressed speed early on, grabbing Raj Davis ($8), Johnny Damon ($24), Torii Hunter ($24), and Jason Bartlett ($16). I've noticed that speed just isn't there later in drafts this year, so that may not be a bad idea for the fantasy legend.
Matthew Berry is already regretting his $21 spent on Robinson Cano; especially after Jose Lopez was grabbed by Jason Collette at $18.
