Teixeira and Hanley, bid early or wait?

Postby Garvey6 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 5:15 pm

I'm an expansion owner in a 16-team, 5x5 league with 187 players already saved. With unlikely a chance in Hades to compete his season, my strategy going into this draft will be to spend $250 on thirteen 2013 trade bait guys and 2014 keepers and $1 on the remaining 10 roster fillers.

I'm looking to try and get Ramirez and Teixeira for up to $15 apiece to be able to either keep them both in 2014 for the extra $5 or trade them midseason.

My question is, do you think it'd be cheaper to call them out early or hope they don't get called out until later in the draft? While more owners will have money available early, they might not be anxious to bid on someone who they can't play for two months.

Yeah, I would wait on them. They may get called out, though, as ways to suck up money from owners who may or may not know the value of the two injured players. So be prepared for an early bid, but I would wait to see if some money dries up from other managers first.

Also, did you mean 'Hades' or 'Haiti'? One is a small island and one is the Greek mythological netherworld. :-D

Tex don't bother with Hanley is worth the risk though.
