Thanks for the input. Yeah, keeping between 8 and 10 is sort of strange. I don't know why it's not one or the other, but I like it. It gives a chance for a middling team like mine to sit like vultures and pick off some of the talent of the loaded teams. Yeah, we do keep at least 2 pitchers. I've got those two and Alex Cobb...so...And, yeah, if I had more studs, I'd keep them.
I'm definitely building--took over this team in last place, and I've fought my way up to the middle of the pack.
Thanks JAH--I actually just hit the "thumbs up" button on some other advice you just gave. You must be a good manager.
I like JAH's advice. If your league does not have a cap set on the maximum number of innings your pitchers can work for the season, I'd get some more flame throwers and try to overwhelm the opposition with Wins and SOs as they watch their average hitters give them little help.

Keeper league. We get to save between 8 and 10 players. The guy offering the trade won the league last year and is loaded--Bautista, H Ramirez, Springer, A Gonzalez, Longoria, Kris Bryant, Zack Grienke, David Price, Lucroy--all of which means he can't keep all the talent he has. He's looking to unload some good players that he can't keep for a young stud.
My keepers are: Freddie Freeman, Kyle Segar, Puig, Bill Hamilton, JD Martinez, Byron Buxton (yep, I'm waiting on him), Jordan Zimmerman and Carlos Carrasco.
Should I pull the trigger? Hamels and Votto are 32. No real complaints against Blackmon and Dickerson, expect that my goal is to move more Keeper talent into the infield. ALSO, because I'm only keeping 8, it is likely that I'll get two picks before many players in the league get their first--SO, there's is a reasonable chance that I'll get to draft one, if not two, of these players AND keep Puig.---Maybe I just answered my own question.
