Latos for Kinsler in Auction League?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Wed Mar 07, 2012 9:01 pm

Points league with pitchers favored, in fact streaming is allowed... :-o so the guys who won last year had a ton of arms. I on the other hand had a killer offense...lol. This year we are currently in the bidding process and pitching is at a premium. Just to give you an idea Cliff Lee went for 46 dollars and Lester went for 45 while Wainwright went for 36! Can keep as many players as you want per year with salary cap of 310 dollars.

I just won Latos at 30, Volquez at 10 and Saunders at 7 dollars respectively. Waiting now to bid on future players.

I was just offered Ian Kinsler(31) and 5 dollars to bid for my Latos(30). It is tempting normally I would probably would do it but with this league's settings would you? Did I overpay for Latos?

My Roster so far:

MIggy(55)(shouldn't have kept him)
McCutchen(34)
Posey(25)
Pence(21)
Hart(14)
Maybin(5)
Hosmer(2)

Price(34)
Latos(30)
Volquez(10)
Saunders(7)
Norris(6)
Hanranhan(7)
Jensen(1)

Keep Latos or go with Kinsler and 5 extra bucks?

i mean it depends on how your settings inflate pitcher prices so much. but $30 seems ridiculous for latos and getting kinsler + $$ for him would be ridiculously good under normal circumstances.

Well, as you can see, pitching is sooooo inflated in my league. I might ask for Kinsler and 10 bucks and that'll do it. It is just that the more pitching the better in this league so I really don't need a 30 dollar Latos just a bunch of 10 dollar Volquez's. But how good do you think Latos will be? Is he worth 30 dollars in this league when Cliff Lee went for 46 dollars?

well i have lee being worth $29 and latos at $9 so $30 seems pricey even with cliff lee going at that price. is this a normal 5x5 league or is there some setting that causes it to overvalue pitchers? either way i'm probably taking the deal but it's a no-brainer in a 5x5.

It's a points league that overvalues Wins and Ks, there are 10 categories for Pitchers and Hitters.

It is H2H too. LIke I said I had a total awesome offense last year and finished second to last place because my staff wasn't up to par.

I would take Kinsler.
Latos won't come close to $30.
I hear your concerns about pitching being expensive, but we are in a pitching era.
Pitching is easier to find then good hitters.

Can you post your scoring settings, I am really curious about these settings where Latos is worth more than Kinsler, sounds like an interesting league to say the least.

Wow thats an intense league. I think if you can bump up the amount of money he is willing to give you, I would lean towards doing it. I can see holding onto Latos in your league, I happen to like Latos alot and think he will score a ton of points for you in this format.

That being said Kinsler at 31 seems like a very good value relative to some of the other players McCutch at 34, Pence at 25, so that if he throws in say 10 with Kinsler, I do it.
