Just had my big league auction on Sunday. I'm very happy with how it went for me.

10 teams, AL Only, 23 man rosters, $260 salary cap

It's a 20 team league total. The NL side has 10 teams as well. Keeper league, max 5.

Scoring system is a little different. You play a team head to head in hitting and pitching each week. 20 weeks, so 40 W-L. Hitting categories are H, HR, RBI, R, SB. Whoever wins 3 of 5 gets the win. Pitching categories are just W, SV, K. Whoever wins 2 of 3 gets the win in pitching.

In 7 seasons, I've won it twice, and also took 2nd and 3rd two other years. The formula I feel works best is targeting H, R, and SB on offense ... saves on the pitching side, and try and throw together a mix of 7-8 starters on good teams.

C - Jason Kendall, Oak $1
C - Benji Molina, Tor $1

1b - Kevin Youkilis, Bos $1

2b - Mark Loretta, Bos $18

ss - Derek Jeter, NYY $26
ss - B.J. Upton, TB $4 (keeper)

3b - Joe Crede, ChiW $1

of - Carl Crawford, TB $15 (keeper)
of - Vernon Wells, Tor $28
of - Juan Rivera, Ana $2
of - Frank Catalanato, Tor $1

dh - David Ortiz, Bos $24 (keeper)

sp - Jeff Weaver, Ana $18
sp - Ted Lilly, Tor $11
sp - Jake Westbrook, Cle $9
sp - Tim Wakefield, Bos $6 (keeper)
sp - Jason Johnson, Cle $1
sp - Kris Benson, Bal $1
sp - Brandon McCarthy, ChiW $1

rp - BJ Ryan, Tor $40
rp - Keith Foulke, Bos $21 (keeper)
rp - Neal Cotts, ChiW $10
rp - Dan Miceli, TB $6

Unread postby ramllov » Wed Mar 29, 2006 2:56 pm

This is a 12 team draft and I got the 11th pick. So picking 11 and 14 each two rounds was challenging. Waiting a long time till the next opportunity.

1. Tejada, M. SS
2. David Wright 3B
3. Travis Hafner DH, hopefully 1B later in the season.
4. Grady Sizemore OF
5. Ryan Howard 1B
6. F. Rodriguez RP
7. John Lackey, SP
8. Bary Zito, SP
9. jason Isringhausen RP
10. Rickie Weeks, @B
11. Jorge Posada, C
12. Zack Duke, SP
13. Tori Hunter,OF
14. Bob Wickman, RP
15. Brad Wilkerson, 1b/OF
16. Oliver Perez, SP
17. Jeremy Hermeda OF
18. Erik Bedar SP
19. Estabon Loaiza, SP
20. Dan Johnson, 1B
21. Kelvin Escobar, SP

Yes, I would love to have this team in our league. As I processed this draft last night at 9:30. I had to appreciate my experience in our league for three years. There were some good members on this draft and some picks were out there.

Tonight I have a championship draft. I doubt if I will have a team that even looks close to this team.
I enjoy this stuff.

You all impress me as this is my only shot at a fantasy team. I don't have enough time to do my CSBA team justice, much less other MLB/NBA/NFL teams.

I just couldn't pass on Santana with the 6th pick. In a 9 team league, I figured I could grab a top slugger on the way back...Lo and Behold I got Jason Bay witht the 13th pick! Then grabbed Hafner in the 3rd.
