Tough one but I would keep the following:
C: Posada, B. Molina 1B: Tex 2b: Kaz Matsui SS: Jose Reyes 3b: Chipper CI: Berkman MI: Tejada OF: Manny , Abreu (still will get you nice numbers, he is def underrated in my opinion), Dye, Willingham, J. Rivera Util: D. lee Bench: Inge, Blake, McGehee, Polanco, Rios
SP: Halladay , Oswalt, Danks, T. Hudson, D. Lowe. Harang RP: Franklin, Francisco, Nunez Bench: Lidge, Jim Johnson, Feldman, Larmol
Well, Tex, Reyes, Halladay, and Manny seem pretty obvious to me.
Which brings us down to picking 2 from among
Abreu (age 35) 96-15-103-30-.293 (oldest of the group, HRs drop/SB rise, will be hurt by loss of Figgins, but solid numbers, durable) Berkman (age 33) 73-25-80-7-.274 (in 460 AB, missed a month with calf injury, can drive in Bourn and protected by Carlos Lee and Pence, but hit .231 against lefties, went 33 games in a row without a HR) Derrek Lee (age 34) 91-35-111-1-.306 (finally got his power back after 2006 wrist injury, getting rid of Bradley, and Soriano and Soto having better years sure would help)
If it's me, I think Abreu and D.Lee make 6.

Tex, Reyes, Berkman, Manny, and Halladay are easy IMO. I'm torn on the last one. D. Lee really came on strong in the 2nd half last year and would be my choice but he takes your UTIL spot. I'd still probably keep him and see if you can deal a 1B.
