Batting average is the category to dump.

How come?

You don't automatically finish last.

Larry was dumping average. 

Which still doesn't quite explain it, because without his batting average earnings Dozier goes from $31 to $30.

The way Larry was looking at it, he had so much value on his team minus the average that he didn't care if he overpaid for Dozier.

This is the pick on his squad that really surprised me.  I read his book.  He sets his bid values at the penny level and says he adamantly refuses to bid above his projected value.  Numerous sites see him with moderate to severe regression from 2016.

Auction dynamics cause strange things to happen but Schecter must really believe 2016 or something close will happen again this year.

$30 as the first player in the second round in the LABR auction the other day.

I'm sure Larry Schecter was fine with that.

And I'm pretty sure he wasn't terribly happy when Tristand Cockroft bought Josh Donaldson toward the end of round three for $31.

You can't price enforce on every player.

I have always found the pyramid interesting.   At very low keeper levels, it's even more pronounced on a ratio basis.

We have a maximum of 5 major league keepers plus two minor league keepers, but you can keep more minor leaguers at the expense of major leaguers.  Keeping minor leaguers does not affect your supplemental draft slots, however it does affect your salary cap.

We have a lot fewer keepers in our league. 1st gets 3; 2nd and last get 4 ; 3rd-9th get 5.

Technically impossible given that you only have $100 in FAAB .... and up to 15 keeper slots.

We play by pretty much the original Waggoner Ultra rules, btw, with a few tweaks.

What if you have more $10 players acquired thru FAAB that keeper spots available Bob?

In our (mine and Texpope's) NL-only home league, we do not allow stats to carry over for players traded to the AL for the reasons I articulated below.  We deal with the resulting FA issue by requiring all FA bids of more than $10 to be must-keep players in the following year.  So if you bid the max of $100 on FA, you get a player that must be retained at his $100 salary in the following year.  It has served as a pretty strong deterrent to silly FA bids.  It also makes the trade deadline very exciting each year, as contenders and pretenders alike follow the news very closely.

See, we allow new arrivals (to our AL-only league from the NL) to be auctioned.  It's a huge divergence point for FAAB strategy.  Do you look for new guys early and often (that's us), or do you save your pennies for the trading deadline, or do you try to cut the baby in half (save some cash for trading deadline).    We've probably done better over the years acting early, because if you get your new guys around 8/1, you're only getting 8 weeks out of them.
