Mixed League Auction Results

Recommended Posts

After much complaining about having a draft so early, we ultimately drafted yesterday - our original draft date. Its a 12 team mixed keeper 5x5 with a $300 budget and max 9 keepers. We downsized from the 14 teams in previous years.

My keepers: Bogaerts 28, Moncada 16, JD Davis 1, Adell 1, Bieber 6, Morton 16, Lynn 1, Odorizzi 1, L Castillo 16.

Having 5 SP on my keeper list, I felt no need to draft a stud SP unless one fell into my lap, so with my first 2 call outs I threw out deGrom (who went for 71) and Kershaw (50). I didn't take a player until the 39th call out - JD Martinez (37).

14 of the first 38 players taken went $50 or more: Max 60, Trout 76, deGrom 71, Harper 51, Betts 72, Strasburg 58, Arenado 68, Yelich 76, Kershaw 50, Rendon 51, T Turner 70, Syndergard 58, Darvish 50, Bregman 50.

In addition to JD, I also drafted the following (in order):
N Cruz 18
Soler 20
Brantley 11
Glasnow 22
Moustakas 19
Conforto 13
Mallex Smith 9
A Bradley 20
J Turner 7
Y Gurriel 9
R Ray 9
Melancon 4
Y Molina 1
L Voit 2

For the first time ever I left more than $2 on the table; I left $18 which I'm still upset about.
I'm historically hesitant to bid on closers; I should have used the $18 to bid higher on other closers.  I probably didn't need to buy Robbie Ray.
I think I'm going to be light on SB, too.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

You know how it goes - normally closers are available if you're active (although maybe less so this year than some?  Guess we'll find out).  Overall, great balance which of course makes sense for the folks who hold on to budget.  I think you'll do well.

 

Have a look at mine?

I think your self-analysis was spot on.  Don't beat yourself up too much though, you still drafted and kept a really solid squad.

Toss you're last 5 players back, and keep Cruz, Soler, Brantley, Moose, Conforto in those spots.

It looks OK but Cruz is a major decline risk and not sure why you took Mallex or Molina at all.
