Contract Length for Pujols in Keeper League?

Postby ElHombre » Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:49 pm

We can have contracts between 1-3 years. Player goes back into auction for next year after contract ends.

I overpaid a bit for pujols, and with Braun, Ellsbury, and Bautista in my offensive lineup, about 60% of my entire salary cap is taken up by those 4 guys. Obviously, i'm gonna have some depth issues in my H2H 6x6 12 team league.

Should I give Pujols a 1 year deal and see if I can get a better deal on him next year or let him go and at least free up cap room?
OR
Should I give Pujols the max 3 year deal and play him and hear trade options for him and maybe eventually trade him for more cap room and better depth?

Thanks!

I don't understand why you would put his price and the comparative proces for you other stars in your OP. The more info we have to work with, the better the advice you get

Sorry bout that, here's my top 5 players and contracts
Salary Cap for 23-man roster is $260

Albert Pujols $46

Jose Bautista $37

Jacoby Ellsbury $35

Ryan Braun $38

Cliff Lee $28

Also have:
Ian Kennedy $18
Jeremy Hellickson $14
Madison Bumgarner $13
Chris Carpenter $7
Natali Feliz $6
Cameron Maybin $5
Corey Hart $10
Aaron Hill $2


Strategy is to fill remaining spots with $1-ish waiver guys, be active on waivers all year and find cheap value to fill the remainder of the squad. I have 10 spots to fill; we have a $50 buffer that can be used for waiver guys so that salary cap for the year is max $310
