10-Team Auction Keeper Draft

This is a 10-Team weekly points league keeper auction draft. Power hitters and power pitchers are what you’re looking to acquire at each position.  The keeper costs froze from last year due to the shortened season.  Next year the costs will back up to $5 per season.  It’s an unprecedented time in this league with so many players kept. Here’s my roster and the 9 players I needed to draft. 

22 Frankie Montas Oak, SP $5 K

23 Michael Kopech ChW, SP $1 K

24 Jose Berrios Min, SP $11 K

25 Liam Hendriks ChW, RP $6 K

26 Gleyber Torres NYY, SS $11 K

27 Luis Robert ChW, CF $6 K

28 Ryan Pressly Hou, RP $1 K

29 Alec Bohm Phi, 3B $1 K

30 Walker Buehler LAD, SP $11 K

31 Nick Castellanos Cin, RF $6 K

32 Blake Snell SD, SP $11 K

33 Brady Singer KC, SP $1 K 

34 Sean Murphy Oak, C $1 K

35 Jo Adell LAA, RF $1 K

36 Cody Bellinger LAD, CF $26 K

37 Manny Machado SD, 3B $20 K

38 Pete Alonso NYM, 1B $6 K

144 Trevor Rosenthal Oak, RP $12

145 Brandon Lowe TB, 2B $20

148 Matt Olson Oak, 1B $22

179 Sonny Gray Cin, SP $14

180 Austin Meadows TB, LF $9

189 Didi Gregorius Phi, SS $15

198 Sandy Alcantara Mia, SP $5

206 Clint Frazier NYY, RF $1

214 Dylan Carlson StL, RF $5

With so many players kept I knew the costs would go up significantly. I left the draft with $11 remaining, maybe I can give that out as a Xmas gift. I should have been more aggressive in bidding on James Karinchak.  The Didi price isn’t one I’m thrilled about either.  Correa at $19 is a better value than Didi at $15. As is Tim Anderson at $17.  I had so many long term keepers that I didn’t draft sure fire players I would consider keeping at the costs for next year.  Frazier may be a $6 player next year and Carlson could be a $10 player.  Olson at $27 next year is going back.  

This team lost in the league championship game last season and has appeared in 3 consecutive finals.  While I believe this team is a contender, I may have to pay more attention to acquiring $1 keepers off waivers.  Cheap keepers that outperform the draft costs is one of the main ingredients to success.
