C) McCann, salty
Of) coco, revere, wil Myers, Stanton, reddick, Gardner

1) A Gonzales ;-D , a Dunn
2b) pedroia ;-D , uggla, Espinosa
3b) longoria ;-D , Sandoval, machado, Youk
Ss) tulo ;-D
C) McCann, salty
Of) coco, revere, wil Myers, Stanton ;-D , reddick, Gardner
Sp)Gio ;-D , Lester, Haren, Harvey, bundy, c carpenter, smarzjda, hellickson
Rp) Rivera, valverde, marmol

These are the 6 easy one IMO but the last one is a lot harder. I have it between McCann, Sandoval and Reddick with Sandoval getting the last vote. I don't love any of the SP outside of Gio.

Easy 5 -A Gonzales, Pedroia, Longoria, Tulo, and Stanton
For the last two I would go with Gio and McCann.

I agree with this selection. If you want to add an ace or upgrade and add another OF, I could package Dunn/Sandoval and get a nice return.

I doubt that there are going to be too many owners salivating at the thought of adding both Pablo and Dunn. It's always worth the attempt, but I think that it's a long shot.

I agree with MaudDib's selections.

Sandoval and McCann aren't worth keeping. But if you have to keep 7, go with Sandoval as your 7th. No guarantee that Longo stays healthy so it's nice to have some insurance.

Sandoval can hit, I have no clue why you would say he isn't worth keeping. The 7 that keep being chosen with Sandoval as the 7th is the way to go. Reddick was awesome, but the 2nd half slide makes me very gunshy on him.
