20 team auction keeper league - just drafted!

Postby avsfan4ever33 » Sat Feb 18, 2006 2:26 pm

20 team auction league, keeping 5. This was my first ever auction draft (might show with the bids, but Pujols went for like $80! This was a big auction in an FPM league (if you've heard of FPM)) $260 cap.

C - Rod Barajas $2 (hope he can put up some nice numbers in that park)
1B - Paul Konerko $40 (Solid second tier 1B, might have spent too much)
2B - Luis A Gonzalez $1 (Very cheap and solid option, plays at Coors as well as hits on the road)
3B - David Wright $51 (My stud player, but maybe overpaid?)
SS - Jhonny Peralta $32 (Probably one of my favorite picks, love Peralta in a keeper)
OF - Chad Tracy $7 (I like his potential)
OF - Pat Burrell $16 (Last year wasn't a fluke, right?)
OF - Torii Hunter $7 (Hopefully injury from last year doesn't slow him down)
Util/DH - Morgan Ensberg $24 (Last year would be a nice repeat season)

SP - John Patterson $11 (Nice value, stud potential)
SP - Cliff Lee $8 (Very good value IMO)
SP - Jarrod Washburn $2 (Cheap option for only $2)
SP - Josh Towers $2 (Like him for some reason)
SP - Ching-Ming Wang $2 (Maybe he can return to last year's form)
RP - Brad Lidge $40 (Stud closer I needed, was my only pitcher for a long time)
RP - Jorge Sosa $2 (Lots of potential)
RP - Joe Borowski $2 (Hope he closes)
RP - Chris Reistma $2 (See above)

Bench - Craig Monroe $2 (Led the Tigers in RBI last year, depth)
Brandon McCarthy $3 (Hopefully he starts for the Chi Sox)
Brad Eldred $1 (possible keeper, big HR possibilites)
Rocco Baldelli $1 (Thought he was a steal for $1 if he can reach his potential)
Dmitri Young $1 (Eligible at 3 spots, depth)
Anibal Sanchez $1 (Bad accident pick. I looked away for a few secs and my time ran out and they selected him. I will dump him ASAP)

-----

I think I have a solid foundation here. Not a ton of huge stars on this team but a lot of potential. I don't think I did half bad for my first auction, maybe overbid in a few places but I like this team. I'm looking already to deal Tracy for a pitcher, since I have Rocco to move into his spot.

Anyone? Maybe auction leagues aren't the fav to rate?

Well I am doing a H2H one now for you to rate and later a 12 team roto. :)

Your hitting is real nice for a 20-teamer. You probably have overpaid on some of the guys, but it sounds like that sort of league with Pujols going for $80! 8-o

Pitching is a little weak, but you still managed to get some great bargains in Patterson & Lee, and the $2 pitchers will surely earn what you paid for them.

Baldelli at $1 is amazing! But don't be too quick to move Tracy until you know for sure Baldelli's health situation ;-D

could you post the team from this auction that you think had the best draft ? these #s look a tad skewed and i would like to see another team.. $163 for 4 players just doesnt seem right

Well I'll be looking to move one of my OFs for a starting pitcher, but I'll check in on Baldelli of course before I make anything final. :)

Hmm, the rosters aren't entered yet (our "hub" is CBS Sportsline, but we did the auction on Fantasy Auctioneer) I'll post someone's later... but it was crazy. First auction for most if not all of us, so players were being overpaid for. $260 cap with 20 teams, lots of money out there. If I did it again I'd save my money for the middle-late rounds, as a lot of good players are still around and I can outbid for them easily (maybe buy one stud at beginning)
