too many keepers

Postby grammysboy » Wed Sep 28, 2011 4:40 pm

We are a 17 team Roto league. Our cats are OBP, HR, R, RBI, SB for hitters and W,K, ERA, WHIP, and S+H for pitchers. We auction for our teams each spring with $260 for 2C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, U, 5OF and 9 P. We get to keep up to 10 players from this year's roster at the price they auctioned for last spring. I drafted this year to get ready for next season and got several great bargains. I also traded this year for a few more good ones. Based on the list below, which 10 would you keep?

J. Lucroy $1
L. Marson $10
H Kendrick $13
M Izturis $10
L Chisenhall $2
Alex Gonzalez $10
R Theriot $2
M Carp $10
P Bourjos $9
N Markakis $18
H Pence $19
T Robinson $5
J Werth $30
M. Aviles $10
Y Escobar $9
J Castro $3
K. Youkilis $23


D. Fister $1
T. Hunter $1
C. Luebke $10
J. Lyles $2
W. Miley $10
B. Norris $1
P. Penny $10
B. League $1
K. Uehara $1
D. Aardsma$10
J. Teheran $5


Free agents are acquired at $10, so the $10 players on this list were mostly picked up as replacements. Luebke is about the only one that gets close to being kept.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hey there,

Please check out my posting on keeping lester vs. kennedy and let me know who you'd keep and why. I'm not keeping Michael Young.

As for your keepers, I have a bit of trouble with auction league questions, since I've never done an auction league. That said:

1) Fister seems obvious
2) Kendrick
3) Pence
4) League
5) Hunter (so cheap)
6) Probably Youk. Not sure how expensive players get, but if Werth cost $30 last year, Youk at $23, even with his injuries, seems to be a decent enough deal. 3b is such a wasteland.
7) Norris

Maybe Yunel Escobar. Again, standard roto, and not auction, is my specialty.

On the fence about Luebke. Only one season's worth of data to go on.

I would also consider Youk but id want to know how much guys like Beltre, Young, Zimmerman went for in your league last year.
The rest I would throw back and save the $ for the auction
