12 team, 5x5 mixed league. 7 keepers. No contracts, and players can be kept forever. I have an awesome group of keepers. 6 are etched in stone, but the 7th is tough.

The top 6:

Robinson Cano
Mike Trout
Giancarlo Stanton
Justin Upton
Clayton Kershaw
David Price

Now the tough part...pick ONE of the following:

Brett Lawrie
Adam Wainwright
Wil Myers
Billy Hamilton

I think I'm going with Lawrie. 3rd base, young guy with 5 tools, playing on a big time offense. But...Adam Wainwright would round out a great pitching trio.

The two prospects would be gambles, obviously, but I've never been afraid to sit on a prospect a while. I expect Myers to be up in early to mid-May, and Hamilton sometime after the break, maybe as late as September.

So, who would you keep?

Oh, and if you want to get your new CBS League at 50% off, you can use my referral at http://cbssports.com/ref/46718070 

You get the league for 89.95 and I get a referral check. So, let's stick it to CBS!  Clap

I keep Lawrie as well. I like the balance you will have with 2 OF, 2 INF & 2 SP. Plus you already have a very young group of keepers so keeping prospects is not as important in your situation IMO.

Lawrie.You have two starters and three OF of the six you are keeping which makes this decision easier.

Trade Upton and Stanton for Braun or another top 5 or so player.  Then keep that player Lawrie and Wainright.  Or do a Upton/Lawrie for Top 3b or something like that.  Go get a top guy and trade your overhyped, oft injured guys to get them!

Trade opportunities are limited, since all of out trades have to be of even numbers of players and all traded players must be kept. I can't go trading 5 players for 2, or even 2 for 1.  The rule keeps strong teams like mine from getting even stronger, and ensures the depth players from strong teams make it into the draft.

Plus with only 5 keepers I doubt anyone needs an extra keeper and would trade their best one for two guys. Remember that person would be trading Braun and his 5th keeper for those two. Not just Braun.

It's 7 keepers, but LABLUE's comment is on the money.
