I need help with 7 on a auction draft league

Postby Padres Fan » Sat Feb 12, 2011 12:58 pm

The leaugue is a 10 team ESPN Roto standard 5x5 scoring Roster:c,1b,2b,3b,ss,2b/ss, 1b/3b,5of,util,8p,4bn,2dl

Draft is Auction with a $260 cap, last years WW pick ups could be kept at $1 for next draft.

2 teams already did a roster dump back into the WW, and was mostly pitchers.

I need 7 keepers from this list of 11, included is 2011 keeper value

Justin Morneau 1B $20-he scares me though with his concussion issue at $20
Stephen Drew SS $4
Billy Butlter 1B $9-wish he had more power
Josh Hamilton OF $13-definate keeper
Mike Stanton OF $8-too me still a huge risk with upside
Drew Stubbs OF $1-cheap 20/20
Colby Rasmus OF $1

Jered Weaver SP $11-
Jon Lester SP $10
David Price SP $1
Neftali Feliz RP $1-Usually wouldn't keep a closer but price is right

Those 6 add up to $37, so all depends on if you want Rasmus or Weaver IMO. Going the Weaver route give you 3 really good SP and I think it is the route to go as that would only put you at $48 against your cap and leave you with $212 for the draft which should be enough to fill out your roster.

what about subsituting Stanton for Stubbs, as Stanton is work in progress, and could fizzle his sophmore season, since he already has a issue taking pitches.

I think there is just too much upside to let him go, and I would also rather have him over Stubbs even at the extra $7. but that is just me.

I would certainly keep all your pitchers. They are just too good at that price to pass on. Then Drew and Hamilton for sure... then probably stubbs for his cheap salary/good production combination which makes him safe.
