Each of these three drafts (AL-only, NL-only and ML-universe) consisted of 12 teams, all of which had $260 to spend on 28 players (14 on offense, nine pitchers and a five-man reserve list).

Here is a look at the AL-only auction results, listed in descending order from the highest salaried player to the lowest:

(Note: Kudos to FantasyAuctioneer.com for an online auction draft applet that deftly managed the tough task of bringing the thrills of the auction experience to the internet)
