  1. Lineup Construction thought experimentRead the original story

    15 hrs ago | Talking Chop

    I was reading a debate earlier in one of the threads about saving money on a high performance player and thus the team was able to sign 3 other players for slightly more $$$. This got me to thinking: Would you go with as many high priced guys as you could and fill in with league min guys? Would you try to balance the value across more players? would you go with a mix? I tend to think that you should maximize value in a few big names then after that try to fill in with as many league avg guys as possible.
