I'm done rebuilding and I think now is the time to go for the championship. Don't know where I'll draft yet but at worst it will be 6th. Here's where I'm at with my 20 keepers in this order

Miguel Cabrera (Det - 1B)
Matt Kemp (LAD - CF,RF)
Prince Fielder (Mil - 1B)
Buster Posey (SF - C,1B)
Jason Heyward (Atl - RF)
Dan Uggla (Atl - 2B)
Mat Latos (SD - SP)
Michael Stanton (Fla - RF)
Matt Cain (SF - SP)
Austin Jackson (Det - CF)
Daniel Hudson (Ari - SP)
Derek Jeter (NYY - SS) I know he's old but MI is a hard position to fill given the roster sizes in this league, plus I don't have another SS
Jaime García (StL - SP,RP)
Brian Matusz (Bal - SP)
Gordon Beckham (CWS - 2B,3B)
Jonathan Papelbon (Bos - RP)
Trevor Cahill (Oak - SP)
Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP) I gotta keep him... Right???
Bubble Picks

Domonic Brown (Phi - RF)

Three guys I could easily see myself subing in for the last 2
Desmond Jennings (TB - CF)
J.P. Arencibia (Tor - C)

Do not let Strasburg go. Mike Minor, Brian Matusz, and Jesus Montero were tough cuts for me. And I found myself really wanting to keep David Freese for some reason. I'm not a fan of Jamie Garcia, but I could see why you would keep him.

Any trading allowed in the offseason? Two for ones would be gold for your team.

I think in this deep of a league i would keep Montero. He has a ton of potential but just needs a spot to play. At some point the Yankees will either trade him or be forced to bring him up. I also prefer Matusz over Cahill.
