Is this a 2 catcher League? if so Posey is a must. Do you not have any pitchers? if not then id go these 4 Braun,Holliday,Posey,Batistia
If you have a pitcher say Liriano or better keep them over Batista. Braun is the only guy on your list that is no question a keeper

Really only Bautista is debateable. Can't see letting him walk for the likes of Ethier or Morales. Both are good players but Bautista will help you a lot more if he posts even 35 Hrs (assuming he was not another Brady Anderson).

i Like Cain and either Romero or Bumgarner, Closers are easy to come by and you dont own a top 5 closer so why keep one.
