First Auction - Roto 5X5 - 12 Teams

Postby Swipe79 » Wed Mar 30, 2011 1:04 pm

12 Team league using 5X5 roto scoring. This was the first time I've ever done an auction draft - how did I do?

C - Geovany Soto ($8)
1B - Kevin Youkilis ($26)
2B - Ian Kinsler ($16)
3B - Aramis Ramirez ($13)
SS - Jimmy Rollins ($15)
MI - Chase Utley ($15) - Wigginton or Casilla until he gets back
CI - Pedro Alvarez ($8)
OF - Andrew McCutchen ($21)
OF - Carlos Quentin ($10)
OF - Aubrey Huff ($2)
OF - Jose Tabata ($3)
OF - Austin Jackson ($4)
UT - David Ortiz ($7)
BE - Kila Ka'ahuie ($2)
BE - Logan Morrison ($2)
BE - Alexi Casilla ($2)
BE - Ty Wigginton ($2)

SP - Cliff Lee ($26)
SP - Clayton Kershaw ($28)
SP - Mat Latos ($14)
SP - Shaun Marcum ($13)
SP - Hiroki Kuroda ($8)
SP - James Shields ($2)
SP - Gavin Floyd ($1)
SP - Travis Wood ($3)
SP - Ervin Santana ($2)
RP - JJ Putz ($9)
RP - Koji Uehara ($3)
RP - Chris Sale ($2)
RP - Ryan Madson ($1)

I think it looks like a really solid team - closers were going for more than I was willing to pay and I think I overpaid on Putz just to get one for sure. Uehara may close for Baltimore if he can stay healthy. What do you guys think? Thanks and WHIR!

Hitting: You have alot of risk and uncertainty in that offense. Kinsler, Rollins, Utley, and Quentin all have issues with injuries. You got these guys at decent prices (minus Utley, way too much when he might not be back until July) but you didn't buy enough safe players. If everyone bounces back and performs it should be ok. I just think you took on too many question marks.

Pitching: What's your IP limit!? That's an insane number of SPs. Do you actually have to start them? Anyway solid SP core and great buy on Latos while everyone is scared off. RPs definitely weak so just make sure to work the WW and possibly trade some SP for a closer.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Thanks for the help - minimum IP is 1500, we only start 9 pitchers in our lineup. Daily lineup changes.

I like the balance between descent batting and pitching. Seems solid given the assumption that few guys in your lineup bounce back! :-)

I've never done a roto league before, but I pretty much agree with the above sentiment. You will need some things to fall in your favor as you have alot of ?'s in your offense. I like your pitching staff alot and think you have good depth there, but offensively there aren't too many guys that I have a ton of confidence in outsside of Youkilis. I'd probably say a 7/10 with an upside of 8.5 to 9/10.

Thoughts on mine?
