Would be great to get some different opinions. Leave me a link and I'll help you out in return.

Madison Bumgarner
Ian Kinsler
Jason Heyward
Jay Bruce
Carlos Lee
Joey Votto
Matt Kemp
Mike Stanton


You need to keep these 3.

Votto - Best player of the bunch
Kemp - Will bounce back
Heyward - Could be a top 20 OF as soon as this year

3 Stud young guys

Bruce - Love the power, gets a couple steals, and hits for higher avg than Stanton
Stanton - Love the power, especially in a keeper
Bumgarner - Top shelf pitching talent, but I tend to like keeping hitting over pitching

Trending down

Kinsler - Like him, but he's trending down
C. Lee - could put up good numbers, but you are likely to get better numbers from both Bruce and Stanton and they are younger.

I think when all is said and done, I go with Votto, Kemp, Hewyard, Bruce, and Stanton. The last 3 are Elite level talents that are extremely young. You don't want to risk losing that.

Votto, Heyward, and Kemp are easy keepers. You have to keep Kinsler, as when healthy he will produce well, and Bruce is more of a known quantity to hit for plus power and average than Stanton.
