    • Encarnacion goldy, Bruce, upton, Beltre & Kershaw
      If you want to think longer term sub Castro for Beltre

    • Any more opinions?

      Top six is easy...Goldy, Beltre, Castro, Bruce, Upton, Kershaw...

      Medlen is so unproven and wasn't even a highly thought of prospect. He might match expectations, but you can't keep him given your options.

      How is Bruce not on everyone's list? He has 3 25+ HR seasons and he'll only be 25 this year! His skillset reminds me of Ryan Howard, except at the same age Howard was still in the minors. Future 1st round pick!

      Goldschmidt has never been one of my guys, but he's too young with too much upside to give back now. Razzball editor ranks him as the 19th player for 2013. His HR's will go up and his SB's will go down, but I like 80/28/90/.275/11 season for him. Keep Goldy

    • Kershaw, Upton,Castro,Beltre,Encarnacion and last, anyone. I love Perez though. If he's not best hitting Catcher this year, yes over Posey then it will happen by next but he's a Keeper beyond this year. Beltre could be swapped out in that thinking long term keeper for Goldschmidt/Anderson/Medlen players you would feel can be Keepers next year.

    • Kershaw, Castro, Beltre, Encarnacion, and 2 of Bruce/Grandy/Upton/Medlen. Id go Upton as on for sure, i think he has monster year playing with his bro. And the last one is a toss up, id dump Grandy back into draft and maybe Bruce as wel. So i say Upton and Medlen as final two.

        Usually I wouldn't keep 2 outfielders,because the position is so deep,but your draft will be like starting at round 7 compared to normal drafts.And,I was thinking who I'd draft in the 1st 6 rounds,and Upton & Grandy would definitely be included there.I like Goldschmidt,Encarnacion,and Bruce a lot,but I'd take my chances more with redrafting them then the others.
