Default Roto Help

Ok looking for some advice. In a Auction League, 5x5 with strikeouts and runs, NL. 5 keepers, have 7 realistic choices. Kerry Wood $17, Kris Benson $10, Odalis Perez $9, T. Ohka $6, Tony Armas Jr $5, Mike Hampton $4 and Junior Spivey $6. Out of those I have decided for certain Spivey, Perez and Benson. Who should be the other two in your opinion? Thanks in advance...

Without knowing anything about the specifics of the league.

Strictly from a value standpoint, I think you will get the most value out of:

Spivey $6
Perez $9
Ohka $6( I am not really a big fan of Ohka but I think there is value @ $6)

I think the other players are close to fair value, I don't think any of them are great bargains. Their value can change tremendously depending on who the other owners are keeping.

I would probably lean towards keeping wood because he is the next best strikeout pitcher in the N.L.

I also think that it is worth taking a shot on Hampton. It is worth the $4 gamble that he returns to his previous form

Avon, it is 10 categories, $260 cap for 23 players, runs and strikeouts added categories. Like Ohka as he should be solid in ratio but wins will probably no more then 10-12, Armas more shaky. Wood I am leaning to yes and besides he might just take it that extra step. Benson no real value but in my league I know he will go that high for certain and he did pitch great towards the end. If 100% a number 2 type pitcher. Concern about Hampton was even in his best year he was not a great ratio performer. So it really comes down to Ohka, Hampton and Armas for last spot. Would really like to have a pitching advantage going into auction day as the who usually has the best pitching in our league usually wins or close. By the way, I COULD keep Sammy for $51, lol...

Degenerate,

That is what commonly happens in keeper leagues, the values of the non keepers tend to get distorted. Depending on who is available and how much money is left sosa may be worth $51

True. Our league is in limbo at this moment in regards to number of teams since we have a set number if we get a couple of extra owners will have expansion up to 12. If we had the full number then Sosa would very well be worth it. Bagwell I could keep for $42, Alfonzo $23. Getting pitching is harder and would rather have a solid 4 going into auction day. One mistake I did last year is I waited too long in bidding for power and ended up paying $15 for a bum like Hammonds. Not this year, will attack early. I LOVE auction day. Drafting just isn't the same, the dynamics of bidding is fun and grueling.

Degenerate,

I would say after Spivey, Hampton is the best value. You'd have to think he will be very good playing for a winning team, with a great pitching coach, $4 is a steal. If you add Hampton to your other 3, I would think your remaining 3 are all about the same based on their price, maybe a slight edge to Wood since you count K's.
