My AL Only season last year ended up being enjoyable. I was languishing in 6th/7th place for the entire summer. I was looking at the standings (roto) and I seemed tantalizingly close in so many categories. But I never seemed to make any progress. I traded Grant Balfour to my friend who was in 2nd place for Mike Olt (possible keeper for 2013). In the final month, his team tanked while my team caught on fire. We essentially flipped spots. Naturally Balfour was a distraction.

........anyways, debating which guys to keep for AL Only this season. We'll probably have 8 or 9 teams, so it's tough to find a proper value chart.

Manny Machado ($8) - Not great value but 3B is pretty shallow for AL.
Alexis Rios ($15) - Doesn't feel like a steal, but he'd probably go for more in the auction.
Brett Gardner ($13) - If he can get back to 2010/11 levels, this would save me a couple bucks.
Victor Martinez ($11) - He won't be catcher eligible in our league.
Addison Reed ($12) - Got burned on keeping Jordan Walden last year. Don't feel remotely confident about Reed, but $12 isn't too bad for an RP2 in this league.
