Papelbon and Alonso for Bailey in an Auction Keeper?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Fri Mar 14, 2014 9:56 pm

13 team, NL ONLY, 5x5 roto, 9 keepers per year, 23 man rosters, can keep player indefinitely.

Have just been offered Papelbon (27) and Yonder Alonso (6) for my Home Bailey (12). Thoughts? Inflation in this league is terrible and top closers go for big money. I was thinking about just drafting a low end closer that might get some saves like Putz or Strop and got big on first base and SP. But, this would help out my infield and I would have a bonafide closer. Thoughts?

My Keepers So far:

Scutaro (8)
Headley (12)
Brown (17)
Heyward (32)
Carpenter (21)
Soler (1)
Bailey (12)
Garcia (11)
Hoover (1)

I wouldn't do it. I don't have a ton of faith in the Phillies or Papelbon this year. I'm no fan of Bailey but that price tag on Papelbon is a killer for me.

help on mine?

Well, yeah, but just to let you know Grilli went for 30, Soriano 38, League 21, Betancourt 23, Cishek 30. But, then again Romo was 10, Chapman a couple of years ago was 14 so if you get guys who may turn into closers you can get deals. Anyone else?

I don't think anyone has Jones yet. You think I should just save the money and spend it on a first baseman or Stud OF and fill out my staff and get a low end closer or someone who could close at some point or take a chance on a big closer like Paps?

I don't think Paps is a big closer. Maybe by name and price tag but not by quality. I would target lesser guys. This is the one you were talking about going after Freeman and stuff the other day or different league?

Unless you can get a stud RP than I never beleive in spending on them... remember every year 1 in 3 closers lose their job. Save it for something else and grab jones.

please help:
