How are my NL-Only keepers?

Postby MashinSpuds » Mon Mar 12, 2012 8:06 am

10 team, 5x5 NL-Only auction roto league with a $80 budget. I hope to get pitching in the draft so I'm hoping my hitters hold up. Do you think these keepers are too pricey, too weak, or solid enough?

Positions: 2C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 5 OF, 2 Util, 10 P

Paul Goldschmidt ($1.00)
Chase Utley ($4.50)
Jose Reyes ($6.30)
Aramis Ramirez ($6.00)
Jay Bruce ($8.20)
Jerry Sands ($1.00)
Anibal Sanchez ($2.90)
Jonathon Niese ($1.60)
Mike Minor ($1.30)
Craig Kimbrel ($1.00)

Other options: Josh Collmenter ($1.00), Chipper Jones ($2.40), Joe Saunders ($1.00)

Thanks for any insight.

Not bad, I don't like keeping Niese and Minor but I guess you have to. The other options aren't better.

please help

This is tough for me, since you start with a low budget that i'm not familiar with. But I have to agree with the other poster. You other options are deffinitely not better.

Yeah, we don't go by the $260 cap as usual (don't know why). Maybe multiply each salary by 3 and add a dollar or so to sort of estimate a $260 cap, perhaps?

I actually like Niese for $1.60 the most of all your keeper pitchers.

I think Niese is more likely to throw up more K's than Anibal, although Anibal certainly has the better lineup behind him.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

In an NL-Only league, gotta take upside where you can. I am hoping that this is the year after the injuries and wildness. Hoping a cheap back end of the rotation can at least get the K's while the other ones I draft (I hope) get the wins and ratios.
