How many SB, HR, W do I need

Postby Rob » Sun Mar 23, 2003 10:33 am

12 team, NL only, auction league. About how many SB, HR, and Wins do you think I need in order to finish near the top of those categories?

Try not to look at the league that way. I tried that style the first year I was in my auction league. Look at it this way... Get the best value with the available money you have to spend. If you do this and have a good auction then you can trade away players that have good value for superstars. Good luck

I did the auction last night. I'm trying to assess we're I'm at. I think I have too many SB and not enough HR, and am just looking for ballpark numbers to see if I'm competitive.

I'm projecting my current line-up at HR- 190, SB- 135, W -70, S - 95, and K-1040. How does that sound?

You look to be in very good shape. Your sb are about where you would want them to be (maybe a few more than you need). You could be right that some more HR's would help out. Your pitching numbers project well.

those numbers look great for an nl only.
you just need one more than the rest at the end of the season,
so watch everyones totals and trade from your surplus to add strength to your weaknesses.

70 wins and 95 saves? Who is on your pitching staff and what did you pay for them?

I'm in an 8 team NL only. Every year for the past five years, it's taken 200 HR, 200 SB, 100 W, 90-95 SV and 1,300-1,350 K's to finish first place in each category. Assuming a straight 35% less needed (8 is 35% less than 12) - you would need 135 HR, 135 SB, 65-70 W, 65-70 SV, and 850-900 K's.

Looks like you have HR and SV's to trade. BUT - you look OK already in the other categories.

Payne Dailey is right though - you need one more than the others to win the category. Every league is different. With you projections (assuming they are accurate), I'd say sit and wait and see where you are in June. Then deal you excess for your needs.

Good luck!

I have Schmidt ($20) & Wolf ($13) that I kept as keepers, and picked up Ortiz for $13. I figure/hope that to be at least 40-45 wins. I had Smoltz ($26) and I picked up Benitez ($22), Remlinger ($6), and Dotel ($6). I also have Redding, Silva, Roa, and Heilman.

I like the Ortiz pick up. What was your total cap?
