My take would be to keep Votto and Braun... 2 of the top 5 players in all of fantasy. I've also heard and read not to let Bruce go... and he's tearing the leather off the ball right now. As for the minors, you have a gem in Jesus Montero they say.

Keeping two sucks because Bruce is making a case to be the no. 1 player next season. It's a stretch right now but you cannot say with any certainty that it won't be true. Regardless, between Votto/Braun/Bruce you have 3 top 10's at this point and could have 3 top 5's by seasons end based on how things play out. No moves are necessary here.

Votto/Braun is the way to go.

Now, if you want to get creative come season's end, offer up Bruce and Votto or Braun for Tulo.

Braun Votto would be my choice. but the way Bruce is hitting right now, at the end of the season he could be worth keeping also.

Braun and Votto are about as good as it gets keeper wise.
