5x5 AL only auction WHIR

Postby Alexcny » Sun Mar 16, 2008 9:16 pm

Just finished not only my first AL only league but also my first auction. Its 10 teams 5x5 with $260 to start.

C- Posada - 18
C- Thigpen - 1
1b- Swisher - 20
2b- Cano - 29
SS Everette - 1
3b- Iwamura - 5
OF- Markakis - 26
OF- Delmon Young - 15
OF- Wilkerson - 3
OF- Willits - 1
OF- Scott - 7*
DH- Ortiz - 41
DH- B Roberts - 6
P- Carmona - 22
P- AJ Burnett - 16
P- Garza - 8
P- Soria - 8
P- Grienke - 4
P- Slowey - 5
P- Colon - 3
P- Robertson - 9*
P- Betancourt - 3

* Towards the end of the auction I had some left over money and overspent on these 2 players because they were what I thought the best 2 left on the board.

Are there any glaring holes besides the obvious lake of a legit closer? Any changes I should make>

Forgot to add, the league forces us to have 2 catchers on the roster which is why I have Thigpen. Is he even worth having? Also we get 2 reserve picks from players not drafted. I have the first pick in the reserve draft. I'm thinking of taking embree but I'm not really sure. Does anyone know any good sleepers or players that might get a closer roll during the season at some point?

One more question. I got Brian Roberts for 6. I already had Cano at 2nd at the time and Ortiz at one of my two DH spots. He was at $5 because no one wanted to spend on a player that was likely to be traded to the National league. I couldn't resist for 6 but regretted it later when some good deals went on players that either only qualified at DH or I had already filled their position. What do you all think of this buy overall?
