I like Alexi Casilla as a sleeper, maybe in part because he nearly put two of my teams to sleep last year.

I think we can learn a lot from the LABR auction. I did think they were fairly conservative, though, not spending a lot on the best players, meaning that not that many guys went for cheap later.

I agree there were no real bargains.

I actually like Casilla this year. I've fallen for him before unfortunately. But I see his biggest problem as staying healthy. I really liked seeing him excel in the Dominican Winter League. It looks like he's come into camp excited and full of confidence. People for get that a lot more was expected of Casilla.
