Starting a 12 team auction keeper league this year and we're four rounds through our draft thus far, any thoughts on which teams have done the best (or worst)?
Team 1 - Evan Longoria, Carlos Gonzalez, Andrew McCutchen, Michael Main Team 2 - Joba Chamberlain, Jeff Clement, Adam Miller, Reid Brignac Team 3 - Jay Bruce, Jarrod Parker, Josh Vitters, Angel Villalona Team 4 - Clay Buchholz, Matt LaPorta, Joey Votto, Madison Bumgarner Team 5 - Colby Rasmus, Mike Moustakas, Chase Headley, Fautino De Los Santos Team 6 - David Price, Matt Wieters, Gio Gonzalez, Steven Pearce Team 7 - Clayton Kershaw, Travis Snider, Brandon Wood, Jordan Schafer Team 8 - Cameron Maybin, Rick Porcello, Carlos Carrasco, Nick Adenhart Team 9 - Homer Bailey, Wade Davis, Chris Marrero, Chris Tillman Team 10 - Jacob McGee, Franklin Morales, Johnny Cueto, Jason Heyward Team 11 - Jacoby Ellsbury, Geovanny Soto, Daric Barton, Fernando Martinez Team 12 - Ian Kennedy, Andy LaRoche, Matt Antonelli, Ross Detwiler
Team 1 has some guys who could be huge but need some tools refinement if you will. Team 2 I don't like beyond Clement. Too much risk, not enough value. Team 3 has a lot of upside but in fantasy, I hate waiting 4 years on what Jarrod Parker could be when I can wait a year or two on what Wade Davis will be. For that reason, I dislike his picks. Team 4 did a good job taking less risky guys with good talent. The first three are looking like solid bets for 2009 at the latest. Team 5 has a nice mix. I like it. Team 6 has some solid players in the first three. Don't like the Pearce pick. Team 7 is really solid. I like all those guys a lot. However, I question the Angels dealing with Wood and Schafer does need to develop his bat a bit. Team 8 I don't like. Each of the guys I have negative feelings towards because Maybin has a long way to develop his power, Porcello is further off, Carrasco has shown little, Adenhart doesn't have star potential. Team 9 is pretty good. Tillman is questionable but the others aren't bad. Team 10 is pretty solid. Team 11 is ok. I don't like Barton as a fantasy 1B or Martinez as a Major Leaguer. But both could develop. Team 12 is ok. Nothing really special. Reached on Kennedy and Antonelli.
I like Team 3 personally, except they should of taken Heyward over Vitters IMO. But what the hell, you grab Bruce you might as well take some risk ... Parker/Villalona could be on the top of prospect lists next year. Oh and while Tillman might seem questionable, the kid was the top H.S. arm going into his draft at the start of the year but dropped due to a bad senior season, he has definate talent.
