Tout Wars auction (mixed-team) reaction
I failed to procure any players in my personal top 50, but the 12 players in the next 60 will more than compensate. In fact, I think that's more valuable. In past auctions, when I would employ a stars-and-scrubs auction strategy I would worry about how to upgrade that second catcher spot, that weak-hitting fifth outfielder or final pitching spot, and in deep leagues it's an uphill battle. Here I'm not concerned. I stopped building auction teams in deep leagues -- there's no need to employ this strategy in a standard 10-team auction -- this way for about a year. Everybody hits. Everybody pitches. Maybe every other team fights for second place. We'll see!
