Well, it's all over now. I will post my team and some thoughts. First, I lost my head and went overboard with my offense spending. I was writing down my players with their $$ on paper, and didn't write down Wright 3B after I highlighted him off my list, and I bought Dunn for $36 when I didn't really need him. This, along with just spending too much early on bats, caused me to not have enough left for the type of pitching I needed. Overall, I think it's ok, but will be trying to help it off the waiver wire.
This is a 5x5 with OBP:
IF- Dunn $36
UTil- Bay $1
Bn- Posada $1
Sp-T. Wood $1
Rp-Bell $20 (I don't know why I spent so much here)
We have the FAAB waiver process, which is new to me, but am thinking of trying to help my team by:
1. putting in a claim for Danks to replace Shields( to help ratios)
2. putting in a claim for Bumgarner in case I don't get Danks
3. putting in a claim for Franklin to replace Cordero (to help ratios)
4. putting in a claim for a guy to help with SB, such as Jackson or Torres( big SB guys are gone)
Not sure who I would give up to get a SB guy, but thinking about either Zimmerman or Posada.
Also, what is a good $$ amt to bid for a guy using the FAAB of $100? I'm just not sure, thinking about 5-10 to bid on these.
Team should be good offensively, but my pitching, esp the ratio's and K's look to be lacking.
Sorry for the long post.
