Mike looks back on the team he bought in last week's Tout Wars auction, and explains how he will gauge his success.

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of participating in my fourth Tout Wars NL-only expert league auction, which was my first Tout Wars auction representing Baseball Prospectus. As always, it was an honor simply to be included among so many great fantasy players and baseball minds, and to rub elbows with experts whose work I’ve been reading for the last 15-20 years. I don’t know if I’ll ever get over sitting in a room with Ron Shandler, Lawr Michaels, and Peter Kreutzer and talking baseball with them.

For those of you that followed over me here from my old blog Roto Think Tank, the words I’m about to write already ring like a familiar mantra in your ears. For my new readers that only know me from Baseball Prospectus, my strategy in Rotisserie-style auctions is always the same:

Future Shock: Monday Morning Ten Pack

17

Kevin Goldstein

Today's Ten Pack features more than a few notable A-ball performances in systems that could use some good news.

Tyler Austin, 1B/OF, Yankees (Low-A Charleston)
A 13th-round pick in 2010 who signed for an above-slot figure of $130,000, Austin showed impressive offensive ability in the New York-Penn League last year; on a Sally League squad loaded with much more well-known prospects, it's Austin who has stood out, going 8-for-13 with three doubles, a triple and his third home run of the year. His season line is at .438/.471/1.031 after eight contests. He has nowhere near the tools of some of his Riverdog prospect brethren, but the bat stands out, and is very much for real.

Future Shock: Cubs State of the Union

23

Kevin Goldstein

The Cubs may be closing in on a new GM, so before the new person steps into the big chair, he or she should be aware of what's available to the team.

Congratulations, ________________; you're the new Cubs general manager. Win a World Series and you own this town and have an instant legacy. So what are you inheriting? A veteran roster with some brutal contracts and a system that is more deep than star-studded. A walk through the roster and what's coming to help shows that this team can still win, but it will take some smart maneuvering.
