Auction Leaguers: How much of $260 cap to spend on Pitching?

Postby Fantasy_Gamer » Mon Mar 08, 2004 7:43 pm

I'm in a 6x6 (5x5 + holds and hitter K's) and thought about going 200/60 or 205/55 in favor of hitting? How much do you usually spend on pitching?

Right now I have Vazquez($16)/Zambrano($4)/Peavy($4). Might gun for a low budget closer around $10 (Nathan?) and another $15 starter . And the rest $1-3 starters and a middle reliever. Is this a good idea?

id go with sumthin around a 170:90 ratio. Usually a little more favoring hitting making it about 180:80. If you can get a premier slugger for like $40 then by all means do it, but then u'll have to adjust ur pitching budget.

Anywhere between 30-40%. I know that is a wide gap, $78-$104, but that leaves you some room to improvise.

I usually go with a 190/70 ratio and am always able to be competitive in my pitching, and in fact, won three of five categories with that strategy last year. Your strategy might be dictated somewhat by the size of your league and the subsequent size of your FA pool. It looks to me like you really have a good start on your staff, just stay alert after the auction and monitor the free agent pitchers. ;-D
A bad three minutes at the auction can cost you three months worth of research!
