Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Cordero $1
Rollins $5

Assuming a $260 cap that is awesome value for $9 and leaves you $251.


Yeah the more I think about it, the more I am agreeing with taking the steals. I like Ichiro a lot at $25, but you should definitely do what Amazinz said and just take all of the values. You can always trade some of them later, is their an inseason salary cap?[/quote




as far as i know the only cap is $260. also this is a standard 5x5.


You may want to find out if there is an inseason cap. The reason for this is because if there is no inseason cap, you would be able to trade some of those $1 to other teams for players that are worth well more than $1. So if you got Rollins, you could trade him for someone worth well more than $1.


not quite sure i understand :-? each team has to stay under 260 all season. thanks for the help

A lot of keeper leagues don't impose a $260 cap during the season, rather they just say that you have to start a season with a $260 cap. The reason for this is to allow for more trades during the season...and allow the teams that are making a run at the title a chance to play for now, and a chance for the teams who are already out of it to trade away their studs for some young keepers and build for next year. I don't think I would want to play in a league where an inseason cap is implemented...I think it would make trades much harder to make.

Oh yeah? Well Pedro's arm is going to fall off in the first game, Beltran is going to hit .220, and Mo Vaughn is going to sign with the Braves and be the NL MVP. How you like dem apples? }:-)

Wow, those are some awesome deals! I'd go with...

Closers: Cordero, Mota
1B: Konerko
SS: Rollins
Util: Hafner

Thats only $9! Now you can spend a whole bunch on hitters and starting pitchers. I would love to be in that position, especially as an expansion team! ;-D

I would take these guys:
hafner, konerko, mota for a buck each
rollins @ $5
patterson @ 11

With those 5 players you're getting
about 60 sb's conservatively
about 80 hr's
and a possible closer stud in mota
