I have been shopping early this year.
Spent about 200k more than i wanted too on this player so i consider it overs.
However he is exactly what i was after, a Spin Spec to bat at #4 and become my VC.
Fielding low for a soon to be 23yr and exp down a tad but i just could resist.I would of had him cheaper if CW hadn't joined me in a bidding war
The only other bidder pulled out at 550k.
Final purchase price: $938,064

I plan on training fielding all next year but will be pushing shower up hill to get him to spec by seasons end. That's the downside and hence the overpay IMO. Other than that what do ya's think?
Any opinions to train differently? He was on bat training when purchased
