    Robinson Canó
    Shin-Soo Choo
    Coco Crisp
    Michael Cuddyer
    Ian Desmond
    Jacoby Ellsbury
    Carlos González
    Carlos Gómez
    Salvador Pérez
    Kyle Seager
    Troy Tulowitzki

    Madison Bumgarner
    Jim Henderson
    Jim Johnson

    • Finally...someone that posts their entire roster instead of limiting the choices to those they like.

      Your 5 keepers are:
      Gonzalez or Ellsbury (depends on if you like slightly more power or slightly more speed)

    • anyone else?

    • Cabrera, Carlos Gonzalez, Tulo, Bumgarner, and one or Votto, Cano, Desmond, or Gomez. The problems with each of those four are: Votto will be your #2 1B next year after Cabrera, Cano is over 30 and moved to a terrible hitters' park, Desmond is your second best SS, Gomez has only been elite for one year.

    • I think your 5 are the right choice. Assuming you keep Miggy at 3B, you have the #1 3B, the #1 2B, the #1 or #2 SS (depending on who you believe), and a top 5 outfielder. First base is a very deep position and with everyone keeping 5, there will probably be plenty to choose from in the draft. I might take Ellsbury or Gomez over Votto, only because it would seriously enhance your SB category and they both provide other value as well. Your team is very good and you definitely have more than your share of top 50 players. Any chance you could package two players to get McCutchen? I doubt anyone will trade Trout.
