I'm in a 5x5 NL only keeper league. 10 team, $260 cap, 23 players, keep from 5-13 on draft day. Any input would be appreciated.
C(2x) - Lieberthal $16, Wiki Gonzalez $5.
I'm 50/50 on Lieberthal at this point. In the draft, he will probably go for the 12-18 range but, there are going to be alot of catchers available (Kendall,Lopez,Pudge, Piazza, among the other lots of 1-3$ priced guys). I'm leaning towards releasing him just because the $16 might come in handy. Wiki, I'm not even considering keeping.
CI (3x) - Helton $35, A. Ramirez $13, OPEN. I lost Durazo at $5 to the American league. I don't see any reason to NOT keep these guys although, I'm wondering how Helton's back is going to be.
MI (3x) - J. Uribe $5, J. Rollins $10, OPEN. Marlon Anderson is gone for me. (not that I would even keep him). Keeping Rollins @ $10 but, Uribe?
OF (5x) - Kearns $5, Edmonds $15, Kotsay $8, Trammell $3, G. Jenkins $23. I'm keeping Kearns, Edmonds, Kotsay and Trammell and dropping Jenkins. I should be able to pick up a stud OF to make this a respectable group although, if Trammell doesn't see time in SD . . even so, I can put up with his .240 BA with 20 HRs for 3 bucks.. Jenkins.. I'm sure he will go for the $15 - $20 range so.. guess I'll have to see how his foot is.
U (1x) - B. Larson $5. An unknown but, looks like he might get some playing time or even a start. If he starts, I'll keep him.. if not..
This is where it is ugly
P (9x) - All $5 contracts - Mike Williams, B. Looper, Eaton, Saarloos, Thomson (GONE AL), W. Franklin, D. Stark, J. Marquis, J. Wayne. If Williams and Looper close out games, I'll be happy to have 2 closers @ $5 a piece.. as for the starters.. ugh.. I'm leaning towards taking a chance on Eaton and or Saarloos or Wayne but.. as much as I'm ok in my offensive choices, I'm scratching my head on this one. I had traded my high priced pitchers for lower contracts last year after I had faded to 6th and couldn't get into the winning bracket so.. that's how my pitching staff is like it is now.. blah..
