Okay, 8 team AL ONLY league. Draft is done by silent auction($300) budget. Any keepers from last year are 1.5 times the value the following year, thus we can keep as many guys as we like, but obviously you dont wanna have too much $ tied up.
Okay here is my team. Please be honest and let me know where I can improve. I'm kinda new at Fantasy baseball. Remember, its AL only.
util-Casey Kotchman(yes i know, this is weak)
Bench-Delmon Young(i thought he would start in the majors, but nope, i got crappy Rios :( )
Bench-Andy Marte (got him and DY very cheap, so I'll have them next year as well)
sp-Chien Ming Wang
My opinion: Steals are lacking, but the big base stealers are taken and they are cheap so other owners are not really dealing them obviously. My Utility spot is a mess. I think I can tread water until Delmo comes up and my OF will be set. I am trying to get Sizemore but the guy wants too much for him(ie Kazmir and Peralta who I have for $2 each, and they arent going anywhere).
so how do i look? what do i need? BTW..All my pitchers I should have next year if i wanted to, except Halladay. He will be too much.
One more thing...lol...buy in was for $75 so this is a money league. Nice payouts and I obviously want to win. so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
definitely looks like a great future. you have a lot of solid prospects, and you should have a lot of money to spend in the future if you locked them up cheap. i agree with the previous poster, the future looks brighter.
for now, you seem to be strong in deep positions and average in shallow ones. not much you can do about that being AL only. whats the talent look like on the WW?
The WW is pretty thin to say the least. Delmon being sent down kinda hurt me, so I had to pick up Reed. I saw Carl Everett, Juan Rivera and Brian Anderson still out there but I am trying to make a trade for Granderson. I do like Juan Rivera though is an AL only league
I'm also first on the waiver priority list so any stud from the NL to AL trade will be mine(I passed on Pena), but I cant count on that. I definitely am not going to drop Marte or Young b/c I got them so cheap and we can basically keep guys for life if they pan out and are cheap(I got Marte for a $1) and I know they will be up this year sooner or later. Guys would jump on them in a second in this league.
In a silent auction league, you have to take some risks. Aside from your team being Yankee-heavy, I think you did a good job in this format. I'm not sold on Chris Ray or Scott Baker, but I'm thinking they could be good trade bait. I also think Kotchman has huge upside, so that's not a bad spot for him, either. Good job.

Remember Damons OPS was lower the Edgar Renteria's from August 1 on last year, and didn't have a steal untill september durring that same period.
I agree with this. Damon's numbers are only going down, and if you can get a deal, then you could become less Yankee heavy as well
