My first auction draft

Postby Roger LaFrancois » Fri Mar 12, 2010 12:50 am

Thought I would give a yahoo auction draft a try. 12 team Yahoo league with 2 util, $260 budget

1 $34 1B Miguel Cabrera
2 $30 3B David Wright
3 $29 P Felix Hernandez
4 $23 2B Brandon Phillips
5 $22 P Justin Verlander
6 $19 SS Derek Jeter
7 $16 OF BJ Upton
8 $15 P Ricky Nolasco
9 $14 OF Shane Victorino
10 $11 1B Carlos Pena
11 $7 OF Ryan Ludwick
12 $7 P James Shields
13 $6 RP Jose Valverde
14 $5 C Geovany Soto
15 $4 OF Jason Heyward
16 $4 RP Chad Qualls
17 $3 OF Garrett Jones
18 $3 P Scott Kazmir
19 $3 OF Franklin Gutierrez
20 $2 RP Brad Lidge
21 $1 P Clay Buchholz
22 $1 RP Leo Nunez
23 $1 RP Brandon Lyon

My critique. A little heavier in SP than planned but couldn't resist Verlander at $22 after drafting Felix and Nolasco. A little lighter in OF than I preferred so I went for depth. Probably could have done better than Ludwick for $7. Couldn't resist the cheap closers at the end my budget. Will need depth in MI and 3B at some point. Don't feel I overspent much anywhere relative to rest of the draft (maybe a tad on Phillips). Was quite pleased with how I paced myself throughout. At sometime will probably trade a little excess pitching to upgrade OF, hope for 2 for 1 trade to free up roster spot.

a little more than I would have spent on miggy and wright, but for your top stars you didn't get too out of whack for your maiden auction. a solid squad with an eye on adding a FA OF'er or acquiring in a trade; you've got a good team and did waaaay better than I did on my first auction.
