Making a Mockery of my Draft

Season's greetings, Grey!

I've been crunching some numbers for my auction league and wanted to see what you think of this potential team I came up with. It's based on Yahoo Auction avg draft costs, per their draft analysis tab, so its imperfect, but I left room for variance. I actually came up somewhat short on spending, meaning I ended with too much and may be able to upgrade in some spots, but I think that this as a base looks pretty strong.

12 team H2H

R HR RBI OBP SLG NSV
QS K ERA WHIP K/BB NSV

$260 budget

C- Alfaro- $1
1B- Bellinger- $29
2B- Odor- $12
3B- Freeman- $35
SS- Peraza- $1
CI- Mancini- $2
MI- Albies- $3
OF- Trout- $56
OF- Rosario- $5
OF- Acuna- $4
OF- Mazara- $4
UTIL- Deshields- $2
UTIL- Brinson- $2

SP- Severino- $21
SP- Nola- $19
SP- Castillo- $8
SP- Godley- $8
SP- Bauer- $4
P- Snell- $2
P- Wacha- $1
P- Corbin- $1
RP- Hand- $10
RP- Diaz- $10

BN- Williams (P)- $1
BN- J Montgomery- $1
BN- Anderson- $2
BN- Mikolas- $1



This leaves me $15 of wiggle room. I feel like I should be spending more on some hitters, but there are so many young talents that will be fun to own. It looks good in the War Room, but that doesn't account for the OBP/OPS/net saves and steals/QS of the league. I think maybe I could swap out a speedier guy for a stronger one, but otherwise would like to know your thoughts.

PS- I also have an NA and 3 DL slots, so I could draft someone like Reyes, Nelson, Calhoun, Trumbo, Healy, or grab them off waivers post-draft.

PPS- Desmond and Gallo @ $6 each seem like steals, but I doubt they go for that cheap.


Thanks again for everything you do!

Team looks solid, love the pitching and hitting, if I had to quibble you look higher on speed than power

Wanted to try to draft Trout and see what happened. Pretty silly probably, but fun to own, and I think it turned out alright!

Yup, still looks solid even with that giant Trout buy... Actually, like your pitching a bit more than your hitting

Any suggestion for an offensive target?

Also I'm not super comfortable with Ray+Bauer in a K:BB league, but can't find a trade partner for him. Your projections are so strong it looks like walks aren't much of a concern for you though.

Suggestions in what way?

Anything you think my team lacks offensively. I was looking to get a power guy (Krush) who won’t destroy my OBP (Davidson) but got rebuked. Guess I’ll just wait for the season to develop some before identifying needs. Just been fiending for fantasy action so hard I’m desperate to make moves!

PS- are there any plans of running another meet up event like you did a couple years ago in Miami for the podcast tour?

Nothing stands out right now about the team -- no plans right now for another podcast tour... Maybe next year...

1. Odor was dropped. Worth a FAAB bid (out of 100?) to stash in place of pillar, Moran, even Brinson?

2. How worried are you about Ray? Would you swap him for godley? Tanaka? Quintana? Berrios?

3. I appreciate you. ❤️
