15 team Auction Keeper League, (Fantasy Points Style) we keep 12 players yearly players have 3 year contracts at that salary, then become free agent's or toppers. "Free Agents" enter back into the auction draft, and "Toppers" owners are allowed to protect "Toppers" but are not allowed to bid on them, when bidding stops on that player during the auction, you have the right to MATCH the offer and keep him, or walk away from the contract.
Starting Roster Parameters: 2-Catchers 2-First Basemen 2-Second Basemen, 2-Third Basemen, 2-Shortstops 1-DH (has to qualify as a DH) 5-Outfielders 8-Pitchers (Starters or Relievers)
Minimum 20 games played at a position last season
$260 Salary Cap @ Auction
MY TENTATIVE KEEPER LIST:
1B - A.Gonzalez $33
1B - E.Hosmer $8
2B - R.Weeks $15
3B - B.Lawrie $1
3B/OF - J.Bautista $1 (last year of this sick contract, LOL)
SS - J.Reyes $25
SS - S.Castro $8
DH - B.Butler $14
OF - M.Bourn $8
P - C.Luebke $1
P - J.Hanrahan $1
ONE MORE KEEPER SLOT LEFT
TOTAL $115 (leaves me $145 for thirteen slots to fill)
Still need to fill, 2 Catchers (OUCH!!!) 1-Second Basemen, 4-Outfielders and 6 Pitchers
My Choices are as follows: (pending my preference too)
1. OF-A.McCutchen $topper$ (will probably go for $25-$30 in my auction I hope, then I would have to budget for that)
2. 1B-3B-DH - M.Young $topper$ (will cost allot in our format since he qualifies as a DH, and I am full `locked` at 1B and maybe 3B pending if I move Bautista to the OF)
3. Trade the rights to M.Young to another owners for 2B - J.Weeks $4 keeper, I like this option too. Pending that the other owner will still go for this.
4. SP - CC.Sabathia $37 (hefty price tag, but that is what ACE pitchers go for in our league in past seasons. so this would tie me up with $37 towards my cap before the auction begins)
Any info greatly appreciated.
