I would go with Hanley first, followed by Reynolds, then Hill (I would say Kinsler but he get's hurt every year and Hill is only improving), then would be Votto, and finally would be a toss up between Greinke and Verlander! (personally I would pick Verlander just because I feel Greinke is just having a wonder year)!
kinsler, hanley, reynolds, kemp and greinke for me. the first 4 are great power/speed combo guys(plays very well in h2h), and greinke has been outstanding this year. zimmerman, verlander, hill and sandoval just missed the cut, which means you should be looking at upgrades like utley at 2b, mauer at C, or pujols at 1b.
Hanley, Kinsler, and Kemp are the no-brainer options. Those guys are studs and can point to more than one year of great play to warrant keeper consideration. Sandoval, Reynolds, Hill, Votto and Zimmerman are all decent considerations, but not necessarily strong keepers because they lack the track record of success like the other three do. I would be most inclined to keep a 3B, so either Reynolds or Zim, and if Sandoval retains his C elig, maybe him. Keeping Greinke or Verlander is an option as well. Remember, you should be keeping Beltran, even if he did disappoint you this season.

there is no way in hell you can keep Hill over Kinsler, i TOTALLY 100% agree with the poster that said that to a point.. Kinsler is always hurt 2nd half and drops stats BIG time (actually just posted that about him a few post earlier then this one), but his face value and trade value are through the roof... i say even if you keep and trade him pre/post draft hes still a better keeper then Hill... Greinke IMO played a bit above norm in the 1st half and is settling down now in the 2nd and Verlander has shown what he brings to the table and brings it consistently...
right now that im so many games in 1st im looking to trade some of my borderline keepers for studs. Im looking to trade Votto and Verlander for Pujols. Good idea? Im also looking to get either Haren or Halladay and package maybe reynold and more for them.
