I'm no good with points leagues but thought I'd take a stab at this. So is this a keeper league, how many can you keep each year? I based my picks on the assumption this is a non-keeper league but if it is that might change a few of them.

Its a Point System League, YES, but it is still Head to Head. (maybe I forgot to add that) sorry.
we keep 13 this year prior to our Expansion draft, (for 2 teams) then after that is completed we can add 4 more keepers to the list, whatever is left on your roster.

I would assume that we will stay at 17 keepers yearly.

I'd keep these and don't look back to the championship. You'd have an illegal infield, very good OF starters, 2 stud starters top 2 RP in the game what's not to like about this set of keepers, plus some great youth to build around. The only shaky one I don't like throwing back is Hosmer due to AGoz's declining skills and advancing age. If there is trading I'd look to deal some of your fringe keepers for a stud LF and 1b. Wait Rizzo nevermind sorry.

Maybe try packaging some of your youth (lawrie/machado/jennings/zobrist) and your extra catcher (montero/molina) for a 3b keeper like longo or zimm.

MadDog36 - I like your list, however its only 13 keepers.....you got 14 above, (who would you cut) love the idea of packaging some youth for a solid 3B (Longo/Zimmerman/Headley) gonna give it try. What about keeping Choo (now hitting leadoff with the Reds - bandbox park) instead of Jennings?
