I love doing mocks, except for the fact that invariably there is that one douche that spends $90 on Nyjer Morgan and ruins the draft

I'm sure we could get a couple mocks going there with people to ensure a few serious ones.

So, someone help me please choose keepers....look at this and tell me what option is best lol. Standard 5X5, 10 team league. IF spot, 4 OF spots, and a UTIL spot. 9 pitcher slots, but you can go 9 starters or 9 closers if you really want to. Just gotta reach a minimum amount of innings. 4 bench spots.

basically, if I keep all of the expensive guys, I'm gonna have to let some cheap guys go that I will not be able to get back at that price. At the same time...it worries me putting Agonz, Cano, or Lee back out on the market....

This is a league full of Phillies fans..so yes I overpaid for Hamels last year and have to even moreso to keep him this year...but he's worth it IMHO...h being for homer in this case

I'd keep all of the guys with the greatest disparity between their price last year and average price this year. You can use the excess money to buy back the more expensive guys that you throw back, even if you have to pay a couple bucks more for them.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. That way I end up with 14-15 of the guys i want, which leaves me with 10 slots to fill with the remaining money...instead of having 13 slots to fill and less moeny to do it with. Just wanted to hear someone else say it haha

I think I'll keep Cano and let Agonz and Lee go back to market, simply because of how deep I am at pitcher/how deep 1B generally is.

HAHA. 3 of my keepers are Longoria, Fielder and Pedroia. I would say go Pedroia. After a few games Hanley will become 3rd base eligible and you already have good corners. How knows how the position change will affect him mentally. Plus with Pedrioia you get consistency and less of an injury threat.

Yeah, gotta go with Pedroia there. Hanley might have a great year again but you already got 3rd base covered and god knows what Hanley will actually do.



So...if you could trade $30 Cliff Lee for $19 Shin Soo, and you're already decently deep at pitcher...would you do it?
