9 team keeper league 5x5 FP (Auction style) we were allowed to keep 12 guys from last season.

C-V.Martinez ($4) - keeper
C-J.Mauer ($15)
1B-T.Helton ($36) - keeper
1B-R.Sexson ($3) - keeper
2B-M.Giles ($3) - keeper
2B-J.Reyes ($3) - keeper
SS-N.Garciaparra ($26)
SS-C.Guzman ($1)
3B-H.Blaylock ($23)
3B-D.Wright ($3) - keeper
OF-C.Lee ($6) - keeper
OF-S.Podsednik ($1) - keeper
OF-J.D.Drew ($1) - keeper
OF-A.Jones ($27)
OF-K.Mench ($1)
OF-R.Baldelli ($1)
SP-R.Johnson ($25) - keeper
SP-A.J.Burnett ($8) - keeper
SP-C.Schilling ($27)
SP-T.Hudson ($29)
SP-D.Willis ($5)
SP-A.Eaton ($1)
RP-J.Isringhausen ($6) - keeper
RP-O.Dotel ($1)

We now have an auction draft for our Bench, another 6 players, What positions should I be looking at to fill, in the Bench Draft? I know about Baldelli's injury, but getting him for a $1 to carry over to next season, is Sweet..... I should probably look at OF help, Reyes is the only guy with flexibility on my team, soon being a shortstop. All the guys above are my starters, I think I managed pretty well, total salary of $254, We have an $80 FAAB to spend for the season.

Any info would be greatful, thanks.

You probably have the best team in your league, unless your outfield lets you down.

I know, my outfiled scares me, but I hope to find some diamond's in the rough, ALA, Mench, and someguys on the waiver wire, with it being a 9 team league, there is some talent on the wire.

First off, I can't believe that you have that lineup in a nine team league. Anyways, I digress. The only way you should lose this year is if you are plagued by injuries or just bad seasons. Good team though

very solid team... your 4 SP are probably the best in the league,,,, if u have a weakness anywhere it might be at closer...2 in a 9 team league will not be competitive enough imo....

Thanks guys, all we were allowed to draft was, two closers. Now we are having an auction to fill our Bench, of 6 players. My highest bids were on two closers, such as BJ Ryan, Hawkins, Mesa, Takatsu, Wickman, C.Cordero, M.Adams. Hopefully I get one of the following. Should find out in the next day or so.

Nice work on the bench auction...you have a good team but some injury risks. I think you've succeeded in providing insurance in the right areas. I think Olivio, Lane and Ryan will especially do you proud. Upton looks awesome, but not this year I don't think. The DRays seem to have some kind of huge, glaring problem with turning successful AA and AAA players into major leagers of any sort.
