Thoughts on recent Keeper Auction Draft

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

Postby Cabby » Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:00 pm

Scoring System

2B Doubles 2 points
3B Triples 3 points
BB Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS Caught Stealing -.5 points
CYC Hitting for the Cycle 15 points

K Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L Losses -5 points
NH No-Hitters 7 points
PG Perfect Games 10 points
S Saves 10 points
SO Shutout 15 points
W Wins 10 points

So, the scoring tends to slightly favour pitchers(especially innings eaters and those that can go deep into games). I finished second in this league last year but had very few keepers as inflation made their price too much to keep. I only kept Jose Altuve, Pedro Alvarez, Allen Craig, Gio Gonzalez, Matt Moore, Jarod Parker, Jason Motte.

C- Jonathan LaCroy $2
1B- Joey Votto $42
2b- Jose Altuve $5
3B- Evan Longoria $33
SS- Erick Aybar $7
CI- Pedro Alvarez $5
MI- Omar Infante $3
OF- Jay Bruce $28, Allen Craig $5, N. Aoki $16, Alex Rios $13, N. Cruz $10
U- Kendrys Morales $9, Cameron Maybin $3, Lance Berkman $2
SP- Gio Gonzalez $25, Mat Latos $22, Matt Moore $5, Marco Estrada $10, Hyun-Jin Ryu $8, Jarrod Parker $5,
RP- Jason Motte $10, JJ Putz $16, Sergio Santos $1, Mike Adams $1
Bench- Chris Young Oak $2, David Murphy TEX $3, Luke Gregerson $1, Vinnie Pestano $4, Santiago Casilla $1, Bronson Arroyo $1, Juan Nicasio $1,

MInors- Shelby Miller, Carlos Correa, Anthony Rendon, Brian Goodwin, Christian Yelich, Martin Perez, Aaron Sanchez

My pitching staff is likely not as strong as it was last year but I think it is solid. I overpaid for a few players but overall I like my team. Again, pitching is slightly favoured in this scoring format but do I have enough offence? Any weaknesses I should look to address?

I think your hitting will be OK. In points leagues high stroke out guys don't tend to do well so Bruce and Pedro might not be as strong for you. Your pitching might not be that strong but I think you should be OK. Look for some waiver guys once the season starts and that should help.
