Help me with my keepers!!! Keep up to 5! Auction style. WHIR

Postby Therobsclub » Fri Jan 11, 2013 5:09 pm

16 team auction! We can keep up to 5 keepers.

Entry Fee:
0-2 keepers: $70
3 Keepers: $75
4 Keepers: $95
5 Keepers: $125

I'm willing to fork out cash if I have 5 keepers which I think I do. We start out with $260 for auction. I made a couple cap trades so I'll have $290 to spend in the auction this year while finishing in the money last year. Values next to the name are a keeper price.

Y Molina: $5
R Howard: 22
Altuve: 4
Headley: 4
Rollins: 30
Rios: 7
Soriano: 12
Werth: 25
Wise: 12
Crawford: 34

Weaver: 27
Medlen: 12
Romo: 12
Grili:12
Perkins: 12
T Wood: 12
Parnell: 12
Arroyo: 12
E Santana: 15
M Minor: 12
P Corbin: 12

I'm thinking I should keep:
Molina: 5
Headley: 7
Rios: 7
Weaver: 27
Medlen: 12
Total: 58

What do you guys think? WHIR always!

I am not sold on Medlen at $12 but outside of that I like your plan. There is no one else worth keeping imo so it comes down to whether you think Medlen is for real and worth it or if it is better to have the extra $12 at the auction and $30 in your pocket for the entry fee and go in with 4.

I don't think you'd get Medlen back at $12, so you have to keep him. I mean look at you other pitchers: Santana at $15, Grili At $12, Minor at $12.

The more I look at this, it looks like the minimum pitcher is at $12 and they are in multiples of $3. How does your FAAB work?

We are allowed $300 to spend for the entire season. I've been back and forth on Medlen. He looked REALLY good last year!

I pretty much like all your choices. The only one I have second thoughts on are Medlen but as was mentioned previously, pitching seems to be expensive, so it is likely worth the price.

This. When you compare the price of Medlen to other pitchers on your team, Medlen is a steal.

I like Altuve better then Rios for 2013 but thats me. If Rios continues to follow the same pattern he has over his career thus far, 2013 won't be very good for him or his owners.. 2c
