On Saturday, Bret and 14 experts threw down for four hours in New York City. This is the true story of what happened.

It didn’t take long to figure out that this was going to be a pretty different auction than last year’s version. It only took about 10 players or so. Mike Trout and Paul Goldschmidt both broke the $50 barrier after the two top players from last year (Bryce Harper and Mike Trout) topped out at $48 and $46, respectively.

PECOTA helps pick the best player in baseball for every age, from Julio Urias to Bartolo Colon and all the superstars in between.

I have a vivid memory from my little league days of sitting in the dugout after practice and listening intently as a teammate read Baseball America’s rankings of the best players in the country by age. The best player on our team, who later went on to play Division I ball, was annoyed by the notion of a 13-year-old somewhere else getting so much attention for what couldn’t possibly be (he figured) superior talent. The sixth-best player on our team, who later went on to write this article, found it fascinating that there was a 13-year-old so good at baseball that they were being written about in magazines.

You asked, we answered.

Monday is the start of our positional series at Baseball Prospectus, and we’re going to give you a lot of information, opinions and strategy tips. In fact, we laid it all out for you here. But before we get into the nitty gritty, we thought we’d have a little fun with some quick-hit questions that we answered as a team. Some of these were questions we got from you, the readers. Some were just interesting discussion points. But here are 14 opinions on 20 questions:

Retrospective Player Valuation: 2016 AL Hitters

1

Mike Gianella

A look at how junior-circuit bats performed relative to their draft- and auction-day price tags.

Welcome to my annual look at retrospective player valuation here at Baseball Prospectus. Over the next few weeks, I will be writing a series of posts examining how players performed from a fantasy perspective in 2016. This is the first post in a series of six. The first two posts in the series will focus on AL-only leagues, the next two will shift their focus to NL-only, and the final two posts will examine mixed leagues.

Before I dig in, here is a brief description of the charts below.

Player Profile: Mookie Betts

2

J.P. Breen

Examining the fantasy feats of Mookie.

Mookie Betts has received ample attention from the baseball blogosphere in recent years, as he’s the embodiment of many sabermetric fantasies. He displays patience at the plate. He doesn’t strike out much. He hits for average. He hits for power at a premium defensive position. He is above average defensively. He’s also dangerous on the basepaths. All of that resulted in a five-win season as a 22-year-old.

Bryan Grosnick

A breakdown of Mookie Betts' 2015 season.

There were high hopes for the Red Sox heading into 2015. While the team failed to live up to expectation, one of their young stars certainly didn't, as Mookie Betts delivered an impressive all-around game this summer. What went right (a lot)? What went wrong (not much)? And what can we expect for 2016? Over at BP Boston, Bryan Grosnick takes a look at the Red Sox dynamic center fielder.

Fantasy Freestyle: Early Returns

3

Nick Shlain

Examining the results to date from three players for whom Nick had high expectations entering the season.

While it’s hard to take a lot of meaning from the super early season results, today I’ll look at a couple of players and a pitcher that I was higher on than most people were entering the season and gauge their season outlook. We begin with two players who were integral to my strategy in the My Model Portfolio series: J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts.

The Call-Up: Mookie Betts

3

Mark Anderson and Ben Carsley

The Red Sox bring a high-average hitter and multi-position player to the big leagues.

Note: This Article was originally published on Saturday, June 28.

The Situation: With the Red Sox wallowing in fourth place in the American League East, and their outfield combining for a putrid .232/.306/.334 line through 80 games, the club had to do something to try and spark its moribund offense. On Saturday, we discovered what that something would be: a call-up for up stud prospect Mookie Betts in the midst of a breakout .345/.437/.520 season that includes 21 doubles, eight home runs, and 29 stolen bases.

What Scouts Are Saying: June 26, 2014

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Garrett Richards, Dellin Betances, Braden Shipley, and other interesting players.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.

Major Leagues

Minor League Update: Games of April 3

11

Jeff Moore

The season's first batch of prospecty goodness.

The minor-league season is upon us. After the pageantry of major-league Opening Day (and opening series, opening night, and more home openers to come), the minor-league season kicked off with a bang on Thursday night all across the country. With radar guns and rug rats in tow, scouts and parents alike descended on all levels of minor league parks to catch a glimpse of the stars of tomorrow.

Hitter of the Day
Mookie Betts, 2B, Red Sox (Portland, AA): 4-4, 3 R, HR. The only tool in which Betts is not above average is power, so when that’s on display, it’s really fun to watch.
