George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre of Baseball Prospectus host their annual auction strategy podcast. They discuss the importance of establishing bid limits (4:00), being aware of league-specific contextual factors (8:00), focusing exclusively on value and extracting as much as possible (11:30), category scarcity and being prepared to make sacrifices (16:00), how to approach power and starting pitching in the current fantasy landscape (19:00), being flexible and adapting to your environment on the fly (30:00), avoiding narratives and confirmation bias (37:00), knowing when to embrace risk with high-upside talent (43:00), building a roster beyond Opening Day (48:00) and forgetting about positions and focusing solely on talent (53:00).

Finally, they close out the show by breaking down each of their The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational snake drafts (55:00).
