I know it's a bit early to do this, but what else do you guys have to think about until March?

Players can be kept for 5 years max. The league was started six years ago, so a bunch of stars will be available at auction this year. It will be a feeding frenzy, and prices should be depressed, although I'm not sure how much. (This will be my third year.)

The league's spending pattern tends to be studs and duds: the best players go for more money, players in the under $10 range can often be had for a dollar or two.

Right now, my needs are few: SS, a big bat (maybe in CF, but could be any position), another top 20 SP, and a few $1 backups. I should be very competitive for the next couple years (2nd and 1st last two seasons). However, I don't want to miss out on the talent at this year's auction. Almost half of the top 50 players will be available, and I've only got $67 to spend.

Do I cut the following players and hope I can get something similar back cheaper with more years of control? I think these salaries are fair in a normal year.

Beltre $39
Lee $43
Zimmerman $33
Pedroia $28 (Maybe the only bargain of the four)

Also, my plan next year is to carry a huge pitching staff (10-12 SP) and punt saves.

Another also: I'm torn between the following names next season: Gee's Up, Hoes Down or Semien Stain

Pedroia is the only decent one of those guys for those prices...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that I should cut those guys (except Pedroia). Its not only the deflated salaries that I'm looking for this year, it's getting some elite talent with more years of control.
