Deep NL only league

Postby AtP » Tue Apr 05, 2005 1:25 pm

12 Team NL only Auction league, 6x6 roto with BB and holds the additional categories. Very deep and at least 10 or the 12 owners very knowledgeable. My goal going into the auction was to get 13 hitters who would play every day and some solid pitching, I think I accomplished what I set out to do but 3 owners left the auction due to other commitments with less than half their rosters filled and left some very choice $1 picks at the end for teams that would have otherwise ended up with $1 bench players. I feel I am lacking in the power numbers and right now probably finish between 4th-6th.

Also I have DL's Spooney and Hudson to pick up Ryan Speier and Tim Redding. I think I have one of the best two or three staffs. I know I can score enough runs, good enough Avg, and steal enough bases to finish in the middle to upper pack. Based on history of league though it takes 210-220 HR's and around 850 RBI's to finish in the top three. I don't quite see myself there. Can I finish in the middle though (190-210 HR's and 800-850 RBI's) and still win? If not any suggestions on a young unknown bat who could get 15-20 HR's in place or Mientkiewicz or Grissom?
