    How did I do in this auction draft?

    C- John Buck $1
    1B- Pablo Sandoval $19
    2B- Neil Walker $3
    3B- Chase Headley $1
    SS- Ian Desmond $2
    OF- Matt Kemp $47
    OF- Ryan Braun $44
    OF- Justin Upton $44
    UTIL- Adam Jones $9
    UTIL- Austin Jackson $1
    Bench- Torii Hunter $1
    Gaby Sanchez $1
    Matt Joyce $1

    SP- Ian Kennedy $18
    SP- David Price $23
    RP- Kyle Farnsworth $7
    RP- Johnathan Broxton $1
    P- Madison Bumgarner $17
    P- Jeremy Hellickson $9
    P- Doug Fister $8
    P- Chris Sale $1
    Bench- Colby Lewis $1
    Mark Buehrle $1

    My strategy was to get 3 big time players (Kemp, Braun, Upton) and surround them on offense with a couple other decent bats (Sandoval and Jones) and then fill in the rest of my offense with remedial, yet promising talent.

    I then figured that I wouldn't be able to get big name pitching such as a Verlander or Lee or even Sabathia, so I opted for 2 solid pitchers in Price and Kennedy and surrounded them with promising young talent in Bumgarner, Fister, and Hellickson. If 2 of these 3 pitchers can produce for me, I will be in business.

    My relief pitching is my weakest area. Farnsworth is good but I just don't see him getting over 35 saves max. The Rays pitching is too good and with their offense coming around, I don't think he will get a ton of opportunities. I took Sale thinking he was the Sox relief pitcher, but realized he was moving into their starting rotation. Although it's nice to have another starter, I had to pick up Broxton on the cheap with the hopes he becomes the Royals closer.

    How did I do?
