ah #$%$, I remember our price/kazmir arguements going back to spring 2010. At least you are consistent in your adoration of Kazmir lol.

I'll try to put these in order since you didn't mention how many keepers?
Rendon, Betts, Polanco, Bogaerts, Mesoraco, Ortiz, Solar, Pollock, Jennings, Gallo, Adams, Gyorko, Cabrera.

Well, you won't get a ton for kemp right now with injury history and moving to Petco. You do need some SP, so maybe you could flip him for Carrasco or Archer or the like? Or try to pry Calhoun away from someone?

His HR/FB bottomed last year, wouldn't surprise me to see it rebound to 13% which should put him at 20-24 HRs in a full season. I have not idea on health.

deep league? not great keepers, I guess I would bgo with Castillo and Harrison maybe one of them pans out as a top 60 player this year.

I think i'd have to keep both and drop bogaerts. I like bogaerts longer term, but seager and arenado are both more viable options and a good cost so I'd take them.

A. Bryant may not be up right away
B. He may not stick at 3B long term (think P. Alvarez)
C. Work a trade if you want a SS take a run at trading for a good young SS using Arenado or Seager, Arenado in particular seems to be a hot commodity.
D. I liked Bogaerts a lot last year, but if i get a decent offer in dynasty leagues I'll move him. From Mike Podhizer 'A purchase of Bogaerts on draft day represents blind hope that a top prospect will automatically improve, despite little in his statistical profile suggesting that he’ll be a whole lot better than replacement level in 12-team mixed leagues.' You want that over Seager or Arenado? I don't.

You can remove Verlander and Myers, don't think anyone is picking those guys.
Pujols, Bryant, Reyes, Santana, Harper seem like reasonable ones. I'd throw in Mesoraco, then it's between bruce, teheran and lester for last one and I"m not confident on any longer term but I'd go teheran.

I like both these guys to varying degrees, but with flexor strain on bailey and shoulder issues with wacha nothing is really guaranteed. I think I'd have to pass on them at ADP in a one year league and go with an Arrieta, Carrasco, or even Shields who seems to be dropping. In Dynasty i'd want Wacha.

you can throw out kimbrel and lucroy, very nice players but not worth keeping probably. You could make cases pro and con for any of the remaining 5. I'd go Dickerson, Gonzalez and Longoria.

Castro's career avg is .282, 2013 is looking like an outlier. 10-14HR's seems reasonable. Santana's career high in HR was 8, so I wouldn't expect much upside 7-8 seems likely this year, and his average should settle around .250 to .260. With no BBs I'm not sure Santana doesn't settle at bottom of lineup, which makes him no better than alcides escobar? Not that castro is the 2nd coming or anything.
