Need help with Auction Keeper League Contracts

Postby jonance » Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:32 pm

First here are the league specs:

HEAD TO HEAD Auction Keeper League
6x6 - w/ OPS and Holds
$300 Salary Cap
Once a contract expires you can re-sign the player for 1.5x salary
Buyouts cost 1/2 a player's TOTAL contract value
Contracts can be from 1-5 years

Hey all...i'm coming off of a league championship last year (and a $400 prize)...and I need some help with doling out my contracts.

In red are are the contracts I need to designate this year and what I am tentatively planning to do. Please comment and if you see any glaring mistakes or have suggestions please let me know. I've also put some comments where I feel they are necessary. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

are those prices what they would resign at? i.e. Beltran is $13 to resign, or 13*1.5 so $20 ?

Sorry for any confusion....those are the prices they will be signed to during the length of these contracts. I wanted to mention that resigns were 1.5x just to give an overall picture.

off the top of my head,

if there are no limits on years, I would max out Wainwright
Johnson seems risky. We know what he's capable of, when healthy, but that's a $30 gamble
Perez at $17 seems high, but I'm comparing it to Rivera at $21. If it's in line with the other mid-low tiers of closers, then go for it.
And if Motte can hold the job, why not max him out? If he someone loses it, it's a minimal loss to you

I agree with most but Nova does nothing for me and Robertson is a $1 player for this yr with a possible closer position for 13' and beyond, but you never know what NYY will do. I am guessing with unlimited keepers that Matt Holliday will end up going for $36 if you toss him back because everyone has extra $$ to spend, so maybe a yes on him as well. Johnson, same thought, little if any value but may cost you $5 in your format.
