Only catchers worth mentioning
Josh Thole
Jason Castro (I like this guy as a deep sleeper)

1 Michael Cuddyer (gotta keep him even if you don't want to)
Reid Brignac (overrated - lacks upside)
2 Dayan Viciedo (he's young and going to be given a shot to start at 1b/3b/DH
3 Asdrubal Cabrera (good solid young MI should qualify at both SS and 2b, gotta keep)
4 Tyler Colvin (good cheap power source)
5 Nate McLouth (nice power/speed combo if he can rediscover his old form)
6 Carlos Gomez (cheap speed, unless better options available)
7 Jorge De La Rosa (gotta keep a pitcher who can give you 150+ IP 150+ Ks respectable rations and 14-17 Ws
8 Anibal Sanchez (entering his prime, turned corner last year)
Derek Holland (i'll take a proven arm like Floyd over the come, you've got some upside plays on this list)
9 Gavin Floyd
Brett Cecil (see Holland)
Odds are your going to get young talent later in the draft at a better bargain. If you throw a productive prime vet like Floyd or DeLa Rosa back, you can be rest assured they will get gobbled up quickly.
