    Pick my 6 keepers

    Encarnacion, Castro, Bruce, Goldschmidt, Kershaw, Medlen

    • My rationale...

      Salvador Perez - I like him, but he doesn't even project in the top 10 catchers for this season (according to RotoChamp) so I wouldn't take him over your better hitters.
      Edwin Encarnacion - I think he'll regress a bit but not drastically, and he's now in the middle of a crazy lineup.
      Rickie Weeks - I have this feeling Weeks may be the next Uggla.
      Adrian Beltre - I'd consider him over Encarnacion since I'm suggesting Goldschmidt.
      Starlin Castro - not a lot of depth at shortstop, so I'd keep him.
      Jay Bruce - he's not even at his prime yet. I'd hold onto him for a while.
      Curtis Granderson - he's got power but I'd take Bruce or Upton over him given their younger ages and higher upside.
      Justin Upton - I'd consider him over Bruce, but I'm a bit scared off after last season.
      Paul Goldschmidt - good balance of power and speed at a position where that's rare and he's very young.
      Allen Craig - I like him but not as much as Encarnacion, Bruce, Upton, or Goldschmidt.
      Mike Napoli - injury risk (Red Sox got scared off from that big contract).
      Ryan Doumit - no.

      Clayton Kershaw - no brainer here.
      Kris Medlen - I'd keep him just to have the security of another strong pitcher locked in, though I can see going with another hitter (Upton or Beltre) instead.
