Ortiz at 56? Kemp at 17? Try flipping them, despite age differences.

Looks like everyone is pretty confident with:
8 David Wright, 3B, NYM
9 Ryan Braun, OF, MIL
10 Miguel Cabrera, 1B/3B, DET

Which is going to make my decision in only keeping 2 of them pretty difficult.

I agree that sounds like the easy call but Cabrera has been murdering the ball the second half and was ahead of Braun before the season. Then again, Wrights steals are way down which was pulling a lot of his value, so I dont know that he is a lock here either. All that said, I would take Wright and Cabrera, but I would shop 2 to try to get Hanley, Arod, or Pujols.

I'd probably go Braun/MCab over Wright in a keeper.

I would love to give 2 for any of those 3 and a draft pick.
