Lincy Trade

Postby prguy1979 » Thu Nov 25, 2010 2:03 am

In a 17 team auctions and rotisserie keeper league....100 budget....that requieres you to have:
2 catchers, 1 of each 1st, 2nd, 3rd, SS, CI, and MI, 4 OF, 2 UT(any position), 5 SP, 3 RP, 2 Swingmen (any pitcher)

scoring categories are:

BA, BB, R, RBI, SB, SLG, ERA, HD(Holds), K, S, W, WHIP

My current keepers in consideration are-
Tyler Flower(2.1)Jarrod Salthomoccia(2.1), Jose Lopez(6.1), Jhonny Peralts(5.9), Alex Gonzalex(4.2), Daric Barton(2.1), Jay Bruce(8.8), Brian Roberts(10.5), Scott Posednick(4.1), Denard Span(6.1), Dustin Pedroia(8.1), R.A. Dicky(3.6), Tim Lincicum(8.1), Jeff Niemann(4.1), James Shields(8.1), Carlos Silva(2.1), Brandon Webb(7.2), Barry Zito(2.1), Justin Masterson(3.7), Rafael Soriano(6.6), Joe Nathan(.10)

I honestly might not keep many of them at all...it all depends on what I see during spring training and were they land in the off season. Outside of Lincy, Nathan and Pedroia and maybe Bruce, Span, Soriano, Niemann...im not sold on any of the rest at those prices....

In order to get more keepers, not sure if these two are keepers at the prices but I was offered...
Dan Uggla(10.10) and Ian Stewart (8.1) for Lincy....the guy also has Chris Johnson(2.3), Hunter Pence(8.1), Arroyo(3.5), Schezer(8.1) and Garza(9.2)...what do you think? leave link please. My initial reaction is to ask for more.

more keepers aren't much of a factor in an auction; value keepers are what you want. Linc is 1 of a handfull of guys you have that seems well worth his price tag. I don't see any reason to get Stewart at the same price Linc is; Uggla's a top 2nd basemen but not a value at 10% of your payroll. I don't see any names you mentioned worth Linc; but 4 or 5 of your own favored 7 seems a good starting point.

I also wouldn't keep Soriano. RP are way to volatile to spend some decent coin on. Even Bruce at 8.8 seems high. I don't have other big name to compare him to but at Lincs 8.1 it doesn't seem all that great.

At 24 players needed, about $4.1 per player, you would be spending over 18 on 2 of the 24, being Stewart and Uggla, no way. Lincy is worth the 8.1. Keep him.
