I like that list, and seems like the best balance of Hitters/Pitchers and picks spread out over the entire draft to set myself up for several years.

The one thing im still struggling with, is whether i really need to keep anyone in the 2nd round... it would be great to lock Timmy in outright, but i should have the first pick in the 2nd round (draft goes in reverse order of regular season final standings and im currently crushing everyone = last pick in round 1, 1st pick in round 2), and i really dont see anyone dropping a first round keeper. Worst case scenario is that someone drops their first rounder, drafts Timmy with that pick, and i have a choice of Holliday, Lester, or whoever they dropped (worst 1st rounders are Arod, Cargo, and Hanley and id be happy with any of those. but i really expect every single one to be kept)
Also, either Fielder or Ryan Zimmerman will be available because they are owned by the same team in the same round, so he must cut one of them.

another thing is, if i keep Lincecum this year, i will have to drop him after next season (because he will move up to 1st round status and i can only keep 1 first rounder per year). But if i cut him, and manage to redraft him, then i can also keep him the following year as well (because when players go back in the draft their keeper status resets)... which would be a nice bonus because it would allow to keep either Granderson, Youk, Hosmer, or Beachy

Option C looks like a good mix. Your getting solid power, stolen bases, and starting pitching that are all in their prime.

In that case I think I'd keep Granderson out of those 4. He should keep this up over a few seasons with his new swing in that park. I guess that would solidify your OF with JUpton, Ellsbury, and him.
I'd rank them Granderson, Beachy, Hosmer, Youk.

I think you should definitely try and find a way to keep Beachy. He has an amazing strike-out rate and looks like he is going to be a great keeper pick. I dont like Youk very much, but I wouldnt blame you for wanting to keep Hosmer or Granderson either.
