I get to keep 5 of the following in a 7x7 12 team league. Standard 5 categories plus OPS & K's for hitters & K-W & L's for pitchers. No CI/MI, only 3 OF, 2 UT spots.
I won the league last year - so I would be drafting last (12th) in what would be essentially the 6th round - everyone keeps 5.
Apparently, my previous reply didn't post and/or got removed. Anyway, I don't think Gonzo and Segura belong in this conversation at all. You're obviously looking to be competitive in 2014 since you won in 2013. And with only keeping 5 players, to me, means that you keep the 5 best players on your team RIGHT NOW with the goal of playing to win 2014.
CarGo, Cano, and Beltre are locks. To me, the decision is between Freeman, Scherzer, and Cliff. While I think Cliff may be the best right now, the trio are close enough that I would go with the younger guys (Scherzer and Freeman). I use age as a tiebreaker when all other things are relatively equal.
