This site is the Mecca of fantasy baseball.
I’ve been a fantasy geek since Al Gore invented the net. I’ve never done however, an auction draft. I’ve always been the traditional snake draft guy in hoops, hockey, baseball and football. A friend invited me to join his long-standing auction league. A rare opening came up for the 14 man ESPN live auction draft. The settings are 5x5 roto, $260 budget. I've done about 10 ESPN mock auctions, but folks usually don't do those too serious, you just pick up a few strats and player tips. Here is what I am looking for, What do the hard core guys do for prep? I'm not talking about the studying and picking the mind of Mr. Grey and others on here, I'm talking about strat prep and cheat sheet mark ups. I have an adjustable strat going in in terms of spending on positions, but other players may force me to adjust.
Mark up sheets with the low candidates at positions?
Color code anything for categories per position?
Only nominate guys you are not interested in to remove $$ from the room? If you do it, don't others as well and it becomes redundant?

Thanks for any input. Tip for you, Franklin Gutiérrez has looked great the spring for Seattle. Get him for a buck. He may bat lead-off.
The Big FraGu? Really? Wow, that's a name you don't hear often for sleepers... Nice... For a 14-team auction, I'd use:http://razzball.com/playerrater-preseason-espnmlb15
And I'd use 180/80 column... Here's auction strategy:http://razzball.com/fantasy-baseball-au ... around-me/
I don't nominate only guys I'd want as that strategy post says... If I don't want Posey, I'd nominate him for $10 and watch others bid him up...
