    Pick my 6 keepers

    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.

    • Thanks for your opinion Juan! Really appreciate it. It's burning me inside on who to keep between Encarnacion and Goldschmidt! For keeper purposes I can see why keeping Goldschmidt would be appropriate but I just can't ignore Edwin's coming out party last season. The Jays lineup is loaded!
