Re: Closest I've come to hitting projections in an auction draft

Thanks. Getting Utley/Longoria for $32/$33 set the stage... not that those are "great" prices, but they're what I consider "affordable". I was desperately hoping to slide Adam Dunn in an OF slot, but two other managers pushed him up to $14 which was way out of my price range at that point. When Bour...

Re: Ryan Braun dropped... should I grab him off waivers?

Jesus H. Christ... saw it again in this morning's real draft. Two people actually bid up to $8 before (at least) one of them realized what was going on. :roll:

Ryan Braun dropped... should I grab him off waivers?

Umm... yeah. After some head scratching when I couldn't find him on the waivers list for batters, I hit "pitchers" to find that there's an RP named Ryan Braun on the White Sox. This morning, in a mock auction, I saw a guy nominate this so called "Ryan Braun" obviously trying to bait the crowd. Just ...

Re: What I'm aiming for (10 Team/5x5/Auction) good or bad?

Yeah, seems like they're already assuming Davis' potential while reserving judgement on Stewart's. $8 - Chris Davis - 77/35/97/2/.265 $5 - Ian Stewart - 84/25/80/7/.260 After another day with my nose in the spreadsheets, I'm pretty sure it's going to be near impossible to auction draft a team that w...

Re: What I'm aiming for (10 Team/5x5/Auction) good or bad?

Only available at 1B at ESPN, but I could still aim for him in my CI slot. Problem with that is, he's been going for $2.2 more than Ian Stewart on average (largely due to the fact that ESPN has slapped an $8 tag on Davis and a $5 tag on Stewart), but projects less in every category... 20 less in Run...

Re: What I'm aiming for (10 Team/5x5/Auction) good or bad?

The biggest problem I seem to be constantly running into in the "if not him, then..." category is at 3rd base. It seems to be so incredibly shallow this year that it's even affecting 10 team leagues. For example, in the last draft I did I put in my $31 for Longoria and he gets pushed... I let him go...

Re: What I'm aiming for (10 Team/5x5/Auction) good or bad?

Definitely a lot of question marks at SP, but I've spent a ton of time in my spreadsheets and don't see any way to get more stable at SP without falling below what I want from the offensive categories. I guess the plus of having SPs I'm not attached to is that I won't have a problem grabbing a guy o...

What I'm aiming for (10 Team/5x5/Auction) good or bad?

Alright, as the topic reads this is the roster I am "aiming" for in my 10 Team, 5x5, Roto/H2H, Auction leagues. Let me reiterate... this is for auction leagues only, so I don't get an "automatic" pick every x number of turns, but I do have to think about how much I "should" be able to buy a player f...
