Narrowing Down my Options

Postby wkpdpack » Wed Feb 23, 2011 11:44 pm

I am in an auction league this year, my first one. I have my pick of a few teams to take over. Could you please rank the top three teams you would want to take over and let me know which players from the team you would keep. It looks like it will be a 8-10 team league with a $260 salary cap. I can keep as many players as I want as long as I stay within my salary cap. Scoring is 1 pt. for double, 2 pts. for triple, -0.5 for each AB, 1 pt. for BB, 2.5 pts for a hit, 3 pts. for a HR, -0.5 for a K, 1 pt for a run, 1 pt per RBI, and 2 pts per SB. Pitching categories are -0.5 per BBI, -2 per ER, -1 per HA, -0.5 per HB, 3 pt per inning, 0.5 per K, -4 per Loss, 3 pts per QS, 7 pts per save, and 6 pts. per win. If I choose to keep a player it will be at 20% higher than the listed price and the contract year would then be one less. We start 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 SS, 3 OF, 1 U, 4 SP, 1 RP, 1 SP or RP and 10 Reserve. Here's a list of my team options:

Team B is a very well rounded team. I don't know if I care much for the $60 price tag on ARod but that would be my choice.
