I am in a auction($275 budget)five player keeper league(mixed)6x6.Hitting stats
are runs,walks,batting average,home runs,rbis,and stolen bases and pitching is era,k's,k/per9,wins,saves, and whip. The 4 no brainers I am keeping C.Utly $2,
H.Ramirez $5,R.Braun $5, and J.Santana $20. So I have a dillema with my 5th..... I got F.Liriano $1,G.Atkins $5, or the guy Im leaning torward is CC Sabathia for $13. Of those 3
who would you suggest keeping?

I like CC the least for 13.... I like Atkins for 5 but Liriano could be a huge bargain for 1.

I'd lean towards Sabathia @ $13.  Followed by Liriano for $1.

Liriano for 1 could be one of the best pitchers in the Al this year with Johann in the NL.  He has the capabilty to give you 200+ k's and an awesome era and whip and K/9 rate.  CC is probably a safer bet, but he doesn't have Liriano's upside.  The kid had 140+ k's in about 120 ip in 2006 and is supposedly throwing pain free.  by the by, I also like Atkins at 5 better than Johann at 20.  Johann will be great, but how much would he go for if you let him go?  30? tops.  You didn't mention how many teams are in yout league, but if it's a 12 team league, there shouldn't be any 30 unit pitchers

interesting point about Santana, mastro.  I disagree only b/c if packerhater is able to keep Utley at $2 and HRamirez at $5, then other owners probably have terrific keepers for cheap as well, which probably means that there will be a lot of auction money available, which means people will be able to overbid for Johan (while still having a good team because they kept guys like Utley for only $2).

it is an 11 team league and the 2 other teams that turned in keepers spent.....team 1 peavy$34,Verlander$5,teixeria$16,J.reyes$15, and D.Young$1 and the team 2 ellsbury$5, soriano$27,c.crawford$18,kazmir$7,c.hamels$5.......so your aware of other no brainer keepers the is gonna be paplebon $5,Holliday$19,c.young(padres)$5,BJ Upton$3,G.Sizmore$5 and then the players like arod,prince,howard,pujols are all going in the high 20s low 30s

Liriano or Atkins....higher risk reward with Liriano but Akins is the safer play.

Liriano for 1 and Sabathia for 13. Drop Santana. Santana is better than Sabathia but not 40% better.

Keep Santana for sure. Atkins and Liriano is a toss up. I have never seen a pitcher get so much hype for 3 months of work like Liriano has even coming off TJ surgery. But $1.........Hard to pass.

i agree dropping santana would be suicide......think about it like this, a guy is keeping peavy for $34.....whats better santana who never gets hurt(knock on wood) in a pitchers park for $20 or Peavy for $34.....answer is Santana.Sabathia who is playing for a contract this year for $13, is a better play then Liriano $1 this year but this is a stable league thats been around and with no increases on players salary and no limit to time kept I am know leaning torwards Liriano. Think about this how many people would pass up a chance in a 6x6 keeper league ($275 budget) wouldnt take Utley, Han.Ram, Braun, J. Santana, and Liriano for a total of $33. Thats cheaper then then Arod and Peavy alone. Thanks for everyones input and a bigger thanks to those able to talk me away from Sabathia for Liriano.
