Please analyze my auction draft

Postby BantamSLK » Tue Mar 20, 2007 11:00 am

Hey all, I was in an auction last night, 10 teams, $300 to spend, 6x6, and I put together the following roster.

C: Piazza ($13)
1B: Howard ($43)
2B: Kent ($12)
SS: Cabrera ($2) or S. Drew ($3)
3B: Chavez ($4)
OF: Bay ($33)
OF: Manny ($35)
OF: Matsui ($18) or Rios ($11)
DH: Thome ($20)
B: Drew/Cabrera, Rios/Matsui, Coco Crisp ($4)

SP: Peavy ($27)
SP: Schmidt ($13)
SP: Sabathia ($10)
SP: Beckett ($6)
P: Penny ($6)
P: Contreras ($6)
RP: Nathan ($25)
RP: Isringhausen ($6)
B: Buehrle ($4), Piniero ($3)

Thoughts? Recommendations on who to play in my SS and 3rd OF positions? Thanks in advance. :)

Oh, and as always, WHIR.

I guess I will start the analysis off, mention my mistakes. I think I bought Piazza waaay too high. I am big on Piazza because he has C eligibility and gets to rest the knees playing DH, but catchers like Johjima, R Hernandez, and Barrett went for $2 - $4, so I WAY overpaid. That said, Posada was drafted right before Piazza, and went for $13, so I thought mid-level C's were gonna go for mid teens, and I was off. I think the left side of my infield is a little week, so I might trade up for a better SS or 3B. Anybody else have any input?

I like your team. This could be a nice year for Drew, depending on how he starts off. I'd like to possibly get strong at SS as well at 3B. Chavez will definitely have a better year than last though.

One thing you're missing is steals. You might look to trade Manny and get some speed for him (try to put together a deal for Carl Crawford or Grady Sizemore).

You have a solid pitching staff. There's a strong possibility Izzy could lose his closer's job to Wainwright.

I think you have a nice team, just a few areas that you can improve through trades. Thanks for helping with mine. Good luck.

Thanks for the input. The owners that have Sizemore and Crawford are unfortunately very high on them, and I don't think I will be able to get them in a reasonable deal, but I will definitely look around the lague for some more steals. Thanks.
