$ league, 8 team auction ESPN H2H Points, what do you think?

Postby bspel55 » Sat Apr 03, 2010 12:18 pm

I think I got incredibly lucky as I spent a decent amount of money early but then got Young, Reyes, and Cuddyer for $5 total.

I believe scoring is ESPN Standard for points.

Total Bases (TB) 1 Walks (BB) 1
Runs Scored (R) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 1 Strikeouts (K) -1


Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Earned Runs (ER) -2
Wins (W) 10 Losses (L) -5
Saves (SV) 5 Blown Saves (BS) -2
Strikeouts (K) 1 Hits Allowed (H) -1
Walks Issued (BB) -1 Perfect Games (PG) 10

Anyway, here's who I spent my $220 on:

C - Geovany Soto
1B - Mark Reynolds
2B - Brian Roberts
3B - Ryan Zimmerman
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Matt Kemp
OF - Matt Holliday
OF - Grady Sizemore
U - Gordon Beckham
U - Michael Young
U - Jose Reyes
U - Michael Cuddyer
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Johan Santana
SP - John Lester
RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Andrew Bailey
RP - Chad Qualls
BN - James Shields (Got all 3 for $1 each)
BN - Ubaldo Jimenez
BN - Rich Harden

Lastly, Leave a link so I can help you out!

Thanks for the help with mine. This team looks pretty good. I really don't know how you managed to grab Reyes so cheap (and Cuddyer and Young) but yeah, you got very lucky. You really don't have too many weaknesses. The only thing is that in an 8 person league, a lot of the teams are going to be stacked. So, possible upgrades and suggestions:

-You could consider upgrading at catcher. It's tough to say if Soto will rebound after his horrid 09 season, but you could definitely stand to replace him. However, the dropoff after the top catchers is so drastic, that even if Soto has another terrible year, you might not really lose too much.

-Jimenez and Harden are great bench options, but Shields might be replaceable in a league this shallow. He has control problems and tends to be very inconsistent.

-You can hold on to Reyes and Rollins and kind of corner the SS market or use the fact that you have two of the top players at one of the most shallow positions in the game. I would personally hold on to Reyes over Rollins if you decide to move one. Even though Reyes is starting the year on the DL, that's only because the Mets retroactively DLed him for roster flexibility. He's completely fine now and just trying to get into game shape. Also, it was a non baseball-related injury so there really isn't too much to worry about. So, you could try to move Rollins and Shields for a solid pitcher - I like Chad Billingsley and Matt Garza to have breakout years.

Hope that helps. You have a great team. Good luck.

You have a solid lineup. You really can't have whatever you want but it seems like you're quite set for the season and any trade you'd make would be either cuz it's a steal or you're making a deal to make a deal. You should have great expectations! That's a great team right there! ;-D
