    Profar, Machado, Braun, Stanton, Gio.

    Then, I'd probably lean toward Lawrie, just ahead of Bumgarner and Zimmerman?

    Keeper league, I wouldn't touch Profar or Machado. Rizzo is SNTS.

    Braun, Stanton, Gio, Kimbrel, Greinke (if you can wait to see his 2013 team first, that'd be best), and then your choice of Zim or AGone depending on your feeling about what will be in the draft. If you feel stud pitching will be in the draft, I'd go with AGone. AGone will be a top 5 1B next year, and it's doubtful any of the rest of the top 5 will be left available.

    If this were dynasty, then Machado, Profar, Rizzo, etc. would matter more, but keeping them next year is asking to be picking early in 2014's draft.

    It would depend on what round pick you would give up for each player selected.

    Some leagues just have blanket keepers, no round assigned to them.

    I have the entire off season to decide. Its a simple keeper league. The draft begins round Seven.

    Prospects are not stashed away. You really can't afford to hold a prospect and wait for him to arrive in the majors but you will for the really special ones. All players kept need to be productive in 2013.

    I'm in 2 keeper dynasty 12 team leagues. I would keep Napoli, Rizzo, Lawrie, A Gon, Braun & Stanton. Then draft pitching early.

    I would agree with that strategy except that you don't know what may be left for pitching. Others may have kept all other elite pitchers, and definitely Kimbrel and possibly Gio and Greinke qualify as elite, so you could end up having other teams loaded in pitching and now you're good, but not great offensively as I'm not sold on the production of Napoli, Rizzo, and Lawrie in 2013.

    I'm just looking ahead... Season is over...

    Personally... Braun and Stanton are no doubters. I'm also leaning toward Kimbrel... We have a save catagories and he is clearly the position elite. I'd hate to have him tossed back into the draft mix having the last pick of the first draft round.

    The Other 3 are difficult decisions right now... l hope things clear up over the winter. Two guys I'm considering that haven't been mentioned yet are Martinez and Craig.

    Martinez was hurt all year and I picked him up off waivers in April and held him on my DL all year. Catcher eligible and he will play nearly everyday as the DH. He's a plus .300 hitter... Nothing to sneeze at.

    Craig... Was a hitting stud... 1B and OF eligible. A Gone would have been a slam dunk because of his added OF eligibility but he really struggled this year and now I'm thinking Craig might be the better Option.

    Gio, Zimmerman, Bumgarner, Greinke and Matt Harvey look like strong pitching options... Matt Harvey was pretty damn good this year...

    I think Lawrie could be a 30-30 guy... Not to mention the SS scarcity and the potential of Profar and Machado. Profar could be a guy you stash... Waste the roster spot... Take the hit and wait for his full time arrival. I just don't know about next year for him. Having a SS that can play is a huge plus because a lot of people have to scrape and go without at the SS position. There are not a lot of them.

    I'm looking at my roster and I got some tough decisions. I'd love any opinions!

    With 6 keepers I would put about 90% of their value on next season. I also don't like the idea of keeping 1/2 pitchers (and one closer) but those are your best players.

    Braun
    Stanton
    AGone
    Greinke
    Bum
    Kimbrel

    Profar and machado might not even start next year and it wouldn't be a big surprise if they struggled. Zim doesn't k enough and I think he'll look more normal next season. Lawrie is really close to his potential imo and would probably be my pick of a young player. I would target Craig in the draft because he has been awesome when he's not injured.

    Gio should be on my list. I think you need to trade a pitcher for a hitter because you have plenty.
