Fantasy Focus: 2018 Savvy Vets Recap

In the Q/A, someone asked about fantasy baseball recaps.  I finally posted an answer last night, but in the process thought it deserved a post of it's own, so here it is.  Our league switched to a Keeper system in which we were allowed to keep 4 players, 2 hitters and 2 pitchers.  My Keepers were OF Bryce Harper, 3B Nolan Arenado, SP Madison Bumgarner and RP Edwin Diaz.  I traded Mookie Betts late last year for Bumgarner.  Oof!  Harper and Arenado were good this year, but Mookie was fantastic!  Here is my Auction list:

Freddie Freeman 1B, 3B- $54.
Dee Gordon 2B, SS, OF- $38.
Jose Berrios SP- $5.
Welington Castillo C- $6.
Kyle Hendricks SP- $20.
Jon Lester SP- $12.
Domingo Santana OF- $7.
Zack Godley SP- $17.
Blake Snell SP- $3.
Kendrys Morales 1B- $2.
Carlos Santana 1B, 3B, OF- $10.
Kelvin Herrera RP- $16.
Gregory Polanco OF- $4.
Garrett Richards SP- $7.
Addison Russell SS- $12.
Cam Bedrosian RP- $4.
Archie Bradley RP- $6.
Justin Bour 1B- $2.
Hunter Strickland RP- $1.
Josh Bell 1B- $10.
AJ Minter RP- $1.
Jakob Junis SP- $1.

I was way too conservative early in the draft and ended up leaving $22 on the table.

Savvy Vets was a great team at the start of the season and led the league around midseason.  Then injuries and poor performances especially on the pitching side started to take their toll.  Finished regular season in 3'rd place.  Got bumped from the playoffs in the first round and ended up 6'th.
