8-team Auction...Playoff Contender??

Postby lambo1203 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 1:16 pm

8-team Yahoo! Auction Draft, non-keeper. Strange H2H format w/ 8 categories for batters, 7 for pitchers (the usual 5x5 + 2B, 3B, OPS, IP, Holds.) Had a budget of $320. Think I really got some AMAZING steals. This is the less serious team of the two I own, but still I'd love help from anyone who wants to chime in! Of course, leave your link and I'll help in return.

I like the balance of the team, no spot was wasted and your pitching is great. My question is, why tank holds and not saves? And why pay anything more than a buck in an 8 team league for closers or setup men? I'm sure the waiver wire will be full of them all season long. I would also start Prado over Jeter. B+ ;-D

Good point about saves/holds. I've done plenty of auctions but apparently just didn't pay attention to that until after the fact. I should have just taken the $1 players, you're right. Oh, and stupid me made a mistake...I bought Phillips for $16 haha, not $165!
