  1. Reverse Cool Story Bro... In my main league - with all my buddies from high school - 26 years and still going strong. Its a live auction and I've somehow saved $6 for my last roster spot (before the reserve snake draft). I've been waiting on this moment for 5 hours at this point, and most of the teams are done. My target was Chris Paddack. Had him penciled in all night. It was just a matter of leaving myself enough $ to get him. Thought I was sitting pretty with $6. So, I throw him out for $1. This guy in my league starts bidding me up! He goes to $6. I'm busted. Can't bid anymore and I lose him. After the draft the owner comes up to me, laughs and says, "I thought we were bidding on Brad Peacock. Never heard of Paddack." You have got to be kidding me! I'm still burning about it a week later. Especially since Peacock had already been drafted earlier that night. Hopefully Kikuchi is something this year as I had to settle on him for $1.
  2. Completed auction yesterday in my 26 year old money league. Really, my only league I typically play. league is full of serious/knowledgable owners. How’d I do? 12 team 6x6 roto (ip and obp added. saves + Holds instead of Saves). 6 keepers. $260 budget. Standard roto lineups. 10 player reserve draft after the auction. C Posey $12 C Lucroy $1 1B Bell $8 2B Moncada $6 SS Correa $28 3B Rendon $33 CI Vlad Jr $5 (keeper) MI Andrus $4 OF Yelich $28 (keeper) OF Hoskins $10 (keeper) OF Brantley $5 (keeper) OF Dahl $5 (keeper) OF McCutcheon $20 DH Moustakas $8 SP Bauer $20 (keeper) SP Strasburg $21 SP E. Rodriguez $13 SP Darvish $5 SP Kikuchi $1 RP W. Smith $6 RP C. Green $7 RP Doolittle $6 RP Giles $3 Bench (each player auto given $5 contracts for next year if kept - doesnt count against salary cap this year) SP A. Wood SP T. Richards SP K. Gibson SP M. Wacha SP J. Musgrove SP J Urias OF C Gonzalez OF Soler 2B R. McMahon 1B Cron our league allows ONLY ten FA pick ups during the entire season. Hence most teams take a lot of SP in the reserve draft in order to stream. Unlimited DL moves/spots however.
  3. True. I don't disagree... You have to know the tendencies of the other owners in your league.
  4. I agree with this. My strategy with keepers in auction leagues is to not just keep the best players but to keep the best values. Keep high value players and overpay for stars in the auction. I will use the keeper savings to overpay for a couple guys I really want during the auction... which you will inevitably have to do in most leagues... and then go back to looking for values the rest of the auction. I look at projected $ values and I estimate what players will go for in my particular league. For example, Bauer is valued around $20-$22 in auction projections. In our league, he'd go for probably $25 (we're all Tribe fans). So, if I had him like you do for $7, thats a $18 savings. Machado at $44 is an overpay for a keeper IMO. If I really wanted him, I would still drop him and overpay for him in the auction. (or use that $44 differently). The caveat is that there have to be enough "stars" going back in the auction. So I go through every team and gauge who I think will be kept. From there I determine if I can really afford to throw an overpriced star back.
  5. Thanks for all the replies! Looks like its split decision. I'm leaning towards Dahl for $5 because he will most likely go for $12 to $15 in our auction. Whereas if I throw Sanchez back I can probably get him for around the price I would be keeping him... maybe up to $23. So, I could potentially save $5ish to use elsewhere.
  6. 12 team - roto 6x6 (OBP and IP added) - Auction $260 - 6 Keepers - 2C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, MI, CI, 5OF. My keepers 3B - Vlad Jr. $5 OF - Yelich $28 OF - Hoskins $10 OF - Brantley $5 SP - Bauer $20 Which one should I keep as my 6th? OF - Dahl $5 C - Sanchez $20
  7. Seems like it fits within the bounds of different owner's player evaluation variance and presumed team needs. Too many complaints like this in leagues IMO. Collusion is pretty clear to spot. This isn't collusion. Not every trade has to be equal, and "equal" is subjective anyhow. In a good league, with engaged owners, there should rarely, if ever be complaints or vetos. If there are complaints, its usually sour grapes that they couldn't think of the deal or were not in on it. If we all valued guys the same and had the same needs, there would be no trades. Just my 2 cents.
  8. Clevinger... two solid years in a row from him... just under ace level.
  9. 12 team - roto 6x6 (OBP and IP added) - Auction $260 - 6 Keepers - 2C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, MI, CI, 5OF. My keeper potentials to date (bulleted being the 6 I'm leaning toward): 1B/OF Jose Martinez $5 2B - Albies $21 • 3B - Vlad Jr. $5 • OF - Yelich $28 • OF - Hoskins $10 • OF - Brantley $5 • OF - Dahl $5 OF - M. Smith $5 • SP - Price $10 Trade offered to me: His Bregman $20 and Trea Turner $20 for my Albies, Hoskins, Vlad Jr, and Brantley Would leave me with: Yelich Turner Bregman Dahl Price ? (not crazy about) Martinez? (Would probably try to get a cheap SP keeper from someone else) Would you do this deal?
  10. Scooter in that improved Reds lineup.
  11. Murphy for me. Paxton in Yankee stadium and pitching against NL east scares me more.
  12. I think this is the best strategy... It gives you flexibility. You could decided to draft Lindor again if nothing is shaking out like you anticipated, and it will buy some time for possible updated injury reports during ST before your draft (assuming its not for awhile).
  13. Interesting question as I am on the opposite end, trying to acquire Cole in a trade because I have no keeper lever SPs. (mine is a mixed league so that changes thing a bit). His owner has asked for Yelich, I quickly rejected. Too rich for me. He then asked for Hoskins and Brantley (plus a reserve round draft pick, which is too complicated to get into). On the surface I would do that deal... but its an auction league and I have both Hoskins and Brantley at great values while he has Cole at $20. So... that probably wasn't helpful. lol. So to sum up, I would try to get a third or fourth round level hitter or a combination of hitters based on your needs.
  14. ANother strong vote for Muncy. The OBP gap is significant
  15. I would keep Olsen because 1B seems to be weaker this year (as mentioned above). But I would also try to find a way to keep Flaherty, and I think I would drop Syndergaard because of durability concerns and short contract.
