Auction advice...

Postby Spinner » Tue Mar 14, 2006 4:16 pm

This is my first year in an auction league. I have a total budget of $260. Any advice on how to split that between hitters and pitchers? Is $180 for hitters and $80 for pitchers to far apart? Thanks.

Check out the Cheat Sheets to see what players are going for in similar auctions, and then see how you can meet the categories you wish to meet. ;-D That's a great place to start, at least. I wouldn't limit myself to a $ value for P and batters. Every auction is different, so you have to be able to go in open minded and edit your strategy continuously.

The general split varies league to league, but that split will give you a very strong offense. One of my leagues is like that, or even closer to 175-85. However, my other league goes as much as 190-70 or 195-65. It just depends on the league and how the owners value players.

From experience I can tell you to hold onto your draft sheet from this year's auction so you can refer back to it next year. Make some notes and keep it for next season--an invaluable tool! :-]
