I'm thinking this rookie just got schooled...

Postby mhuard » Mon Apr 04, 2005 3:41 pm

My first AUCTION draft. Whoa, way different than I’m used too. I went for a few big names to use as trade bait later on down the road and then tried to get lucky with a few up and comers. I was nervous...players went higher than projected...I was thrown off a bit. Here is how it went:

16 Teams
24 players (14/10)
$260 Auction
Can’t pick from KC, Pit, Cin, Balt, Wash, Tamp, or Milw

Y. Molina 5 C
Y. Torrelba 3 C
JT Snow 9 1b
O. Hudson 9 2b
J. Bartlett 15 SS
A. Boone 11 3b
O. Cabrera 16 MI
S. Spiezo 3 CI
V. Guerrero 41 OF
W. Taveras 8 OF
J. Rivera 1 OF
J. Werth 5 OF
j. Hairston 9 OF
R. Gload 1 DH

P. Martinez 24
D. Harren 12
AJ Burnett 17
D. Lowe 11
J. Isringhausen 24
K. Millwood 5
S. Shields 4
J. Duchscherer 2
K. Escobar 11
J. Blanton 1

I think I spent too much on pitching...
What do you think overall? Suggestions?
I’m thinking….’plan for next year’…….

To put it nicely, your offense is atrocious. Other than Guerrero, you don't have any impact hitters whatsoever. Cabrera for $16?.

Pitching is decent, but it won't pull you anywhere near first place without a better bat.

I'm in the same boat as you... Plan for next year.

not much too choose from....

My team was just added to the league. Most other teams had 10 - 15 keepers from the previous year. I didn't have a lot to choose from but you are right, I don't have any hitting....

Not much on the WW either.

~sigh~

Maybe I'll trade Vlad for a couple cheap guys for next year.

To be blunt, your offense will keep you from winning. Try to make some trades if you can.

It's a pretty big challenge to come into such a keeper-heavy league like this. If I were you I'd try to focus on young, cheap guys that can help you in the years to come. Vlad has definitely got a few more years in him, so don't let him go unless you get plenty in return. I might try to get something for Izzy while you can too.
