ben revere worth keeping @10 in al only auction keeper?

Postby MEHPITT » Wed Mar 07, 2012 6:05 pm

Its a 5x5 league (HR, R RBI, SB, AVG), al only, 2c, 1b, 12b, 13b, 1ss, 1mi, 1ci, 5of, 1u. Unlimited number of keepers, just a 260 salary cap for the auction. Is Revere worth keeping at $10? Thanks for any info!

How many teams. Assuming 10 or 12. I wouldn't. i think you could get him back for cheaper than that or at a very similar price. If it were me I wouldn't pay more than $1.

In a 10 team AL league last year, he earned $10.
I probably would, since i think he earns a few more bucks this year.

Thanks for the info! He could lose playing time because supposedly the Twins are thinking of platooning him with Plouffe and Benson is in the minors waiting for a shot as well.

I don't think he will lose time and think he is worth 10 bucks. His speed will really help you out. Keep him.

please help
