It looks like some decisions were made with you including Wainwright's injury and Soriano a set up man in NY. The only questionable players that comes into play other than your list are Grqanderson and Quentin, and that is a personal preference. I actually side with you and chose to leave them off. Some may be higher on them. I have no issues with your list.

Good luck.

I'm going to rank 1-10 who I would keep and why (I don't know if you will make the decision to go the full 10 keepers or not):

1). Hunter Pence--great OF who fills all the stats, hitting his prime
2). Josh Johnson--great top-end starter who will continue to progress
3). Adam Wainwright--would be ranked 1st if he weren't hurt, but I think you'd be crazy not to hold on to him.
4). Billy Butler--still young, so hopefully we can see an uptick in power (20-25 HR, please?)
5). Jose Reyes--he says he's as healthy as he has ever been. If so, 50 steals could be back in the picture.
6). Casey McGehee--love him. Great source for RBIs hitting in that lineup behind guys like Weeks/Braun/Fielder.
7). Max Scherzer--Hopefully he has everything solved now and can be a force to be reckoned with.
8). Ricky Nolasco--I'm probably higher on him than most, but a great source for K's.
9). BJ Upton--good for steals, maybe R's, and honestly, I think that's it. I don't see this guy ever putting it all together.
10). Carlos Quentin--I have a sneaky suspicion he could return to that MVP form he flashed 2 years ago before getting hurt.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

No way, you can't stash a guy who won't be back for 2 years, not worth it.

TJ recovery is between 12-18 months.
I expect him to miss 2-3 months next year.
