I won my AL only 12 team 5x5 auction league. We can keep only 8 players. I need to come up with a solid 8 and maybe try to trade a couple of players for a better player or a pick upgrade. The picks are used for minor leaguers or for players that didn't get drafted. I have four picks with my best being # 12.
I have Mike Trout and I plan of extending him by at least 4 years making him 25.00. Each year costs 5.00 . He's 5.00 now and extention can only be done once.
We have a 260.00 budget at the draft.
Here are my players with their contract next to their name.
Trout 5.00 Extending 4 years to 25.00
Sonny Gray 8.00
Price 20.00 I have to keep or trade. He has a guaranteed contract.
Casey Janssen 1.00
My first thoughts are to keep Trout( no brainer ) Donaldson, , Iglesais , Cobb, Max, Price, Uehara, and either Lackey, Kluber or Janssen. Taking either of the last three pitchers would give me 89.00 so I would have 171.00 at the draft.
Thoughts or questions?
