Keeper league and just came off a winning season and finding it hard to trade.  Most are waiting to poach my guys in the draft.
 
On top of my 4 rookies I can keep into next year (W. Myers, B. Hamilton, Y. Alonso, and Matt Moore) I can keep 10 of the following list...the first 10 is what I'm thinking about keeping and the rest will be dropped:
 
Keepers

1st - Adrian Gonzalez

1st - Billy Butler

SS/3rd - Hanley Ramirez

OF - Jacoby Ellsbury

OF - Alex Gordon

3rd - Aramis Ramirez

OF - Mike Trout

SP - Justin Verlander

SP - Stephen Strasburg

SP - Johnny Cueto

 
Possible Keepers
OF - Desmond Jennings

2nd/SS/OF - Ben Zobrist

OF - Shin-Soo Choo

OF - Andre Ethier

OF - Domonic Brown

3rd - Mike Moustakas

SP - Zack Greinke

SP - Max Scherzer

SP - Doug Fister

 
Drops

C - Alex Avila

C - Jonathan Lucroy

C - Miguel Montero

C - Geovany Soto

1st - Ike Davis

2nd - Dan Uggla

2nd - Aaron Hill

OF - Coby Rasmus

OF - Vernon Wells

RP - John Axford

RP - Joel Hanrahan

RP - Carlos Marmol

RP - JJ Putz

RP - Matt Thornton

SP - Zach Britton

SP - Brandan McCarthy

SP - Ubaldo Jimenez

 
Would you change anyone in the first 10?

Greinke over Cueto
Jennings over Gordon

if you were a risk-taker, i would look to keep either of those 2 over A-Ram as well.

Grienke over Cueto as well...
Zobrist over Gordon gives you more position flexibility,and you need a 2b.

Because of Ramerez's age I am skeptical in keeping him but his numbers I think tell another story.  I think he has one more in him.  Otherwise I might bite/gamble on Moustakas.

I don't disagree on Greinke because he is down the rotation but was looking at Cueto because he has great control.
 
Unlike last year I'm not sold on Jennings ...he showed some weaknesses and I have W. Meyer who can fill his spot.

Can always keep 4 pitchers and keep both Greinke and Cueto and drop Gorden altogether.

No way I keep A-Ram. 3B is deep this year. I'd roll the dice and go a different direction.

With H.Ramirez eligible at SS/3B you have flexibility to draft either a different SS or 3B. If you have two on the bubble that could be a decider.

I throw back A Ram too... would freeze Zobrist, Greinke & Jennings over him.  Def Greinke over Cueto.
