More keeper stuff

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Does that factor in the innings pitched by relievers?

Not every starter is going to get 30 starts, and you're sit some bad starts, so, yeah, it's 6 starters and some RPs...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I really like the team... I think your pitching is great... Hitting will be dependent on Sandoval bouncing back and Votto staying healthy to a certain degree, and you look a little light on speed, but overall very solid...

Fowler, Marte or Pagan for a speed boost?

Thanks. Was thinking Pagan but take a shot at upside, right?

Also, grabbed Cuddyer as some In Case Ike Sucks insurance. Reddick still out there too, but figured I have enough K merchants already...

Cool on Cuddyer... Yeah, take a shot on upside with Marte, plus he has more speed...

A few thoughts...

So, my great plan to try and do something about my 1 in hitters' Ks got derailed. Having kept CarGo and Stanton I was targeting Aoki or Victorino to finish the OF, but then got Jennings and Choo at decent value so didn't really see the need for them, though I did go back for Pence late.

Again I've finished the auction in this league with some money on the table. I think it comes from sticking closely to Rudy's dollar values, i.e. not overpaying. However the other side of that is that the top guys in this league are SO expensive (Miggy $60, Pujols $51, Prince $56, Longo $55, JUp $42, Beltre $41, Heyward $35, Reyes $36, Pedrois $30 to name a few) and not wanting to overpay, before long there's not much to spend the extra money on.

That said, I was glad I had enough to go the extra on Votto (not a bad buy given those other prices for a top 1B - but still $5 more than I could have kept him for!) and to be able to overpay a bit for J-Zimm (who I really wanted) and Latos and to get some closers when they were starting to thin out a bit.

It also meant I could pay what it took to get Rutledge as he was about the last decent SS left (didn't want to go to $20 on Rollins, and Hanley went for $34 and Reyes - who I really wanted went for $36 as per above. Even Zobrist went for $30!), though even at $15, that's still a way below where Rudy has him.

My carefulness cost me Greinke though - shouldn't have let him go for $17 and I should have gone a couple extra to get Mad-Bum, who went for $24 - he would have been a good balance for Moore and Medlen as I don't fully trust Latos, but after not getting Greinke and Bum I had to go hard after him (Latos).

But pretty happy overall - hopefully my relative caution means I have more solid guys at positions where others have had to resort to schmohawks. And of course it's a fairly shallow league, so there's a bunch of useful guys (esp pitching) on the wire, so in-season management is pretty important.

Let's get ready to rumble...
