Which 5 Players are Best Keepers in Auction League?

Postby Moss84 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:39 pm

12 team H2h Mixed League
$1000 cap and draft 24 players
Scoring:
Hitters - 1 pt per Hit, run, rbi, sb, bb, hbp. 2B= 2 pts, 3B=3pts, HR=4 pts
Pitchers - Basically WINS and K's : 10 pts a win, -5 a loss, 1 per K , 5 pts for CG, 5 pts for Shutout - NO ERA, WHIP etc.

I can keep 5 players: 1 Infield, 1 Outfield, 1 SP and 2 final keepers from any position
My team:

Tulowitzki - $70 (no brainer)
Utley - $95 (Cano is being kept at $130) - Injury scares me but still decent value

Mark Reynolds - $45 - down 2010 season but good price and Baltimore good home hitters park (wright, beltre, zimmerman, longoria will all be kept). Bounce back potential ?

McCutchen - $65

Other possibilities:
Joe Mauer ($110) - V-mart went for $125 last year.
Pence - $60 - weak supporting cast but reaching prime years.
Matt Kemp - $105 - can he rebound knowing he'll be hitting cleanup

Pitchers: (wins and K's most important)
David Price - $50 - Rays loss of Crawford/Pena/ Soriano - less wins for Price ?
Cole Hamels - $75
Clayton Kershaw - $85
Ted Lilly - $15
Brett Myers - $15 - was great last season and potential trade to Yankees

I'm leaning toward keeping Tulowitzki, Utley, McCutchen, and need to decide on Pitcher (Price, Hamels, Kershaw) and final keeper (Reynolds, Mauer, Kemp, Pence).

I'll answer yours.

Tulowitzki, Utley, McCutchen, Pence or Myers can't beat that value. Depends on your scoring.

I'd want Hamels or Kershaw over Price there. Can't take reynolds with so many better choices

I like price for Price (no pun intended).
Spend the extra $$ on someone other than Reynolds (he can hit sub .200 where ever he plays)
monitor Utley, we should know more this week...
