The easy ones are Cano, Holliday, and Grienke.

Do you have to keep 7? Can you get draft picks in place of keepers? If yes, I would just keep those 3.

If not, I would add Marcum, Trumbo, Johnson, and Freeman.

The toughest cuts were Andrus (you can get speed later) and Wainwright (no guarantee he comes back 100%, and his innings will be limited to ~160 for the year)

Thats what I was thinking, I think the SS position being so thin I would keep Andrus. Wainwright I picked up and stashed on my bench so i'm 50/50 on him. But I thought if my rotation was JJ, MArcum, Grenkie, Wainwright, and Kimbrel I would be stacked. The comish worded it as protecting 7 players, I'm getting clarification on it.

So my 7 as of now would be

Cano, Holliday, Grenkie, Andrus, Trumbo, and any 2 of Marcum, Johnson , Wainwright, Kimbrel.

How's that order?

Is Kimbrel worth keeping if it doesnt cost me a pick?

Thanks for the feedback, this has been driving me nuts.

With only 7, Marcum and Andrus aren't keepers imo.

Definite Keepers:
Cano
Holliday
Kimbrel
Greinke
Johnson

The 2 of:
Andrus
Freeman (I would definitely keep him before Trumbo)
Wainwright

If it was me, I'd keep Andrus and Wainwright. But that's without knowing the depth of the league nor the scoring system.

I always hesitate to give alot of input w/o full knowledge of the settings but in most cases I'd say Cano, Andrus, Holliday, Greinke, Kimbrel, Freeman & maybe Wainwright

Cano
Holliday
Grienke
and Josh Johnson are no-brainers.

I think I'd also keep Marcum, Wainwright (he should be recovered by then), and Kimbrel.

I'd try to move one of my starters (Marcum, I think) for a comparable hitter, as hitting is generally more consistent than pitching. Maybe someone like Konerko, because everyone seems to dislike him, but he's consistently very productive.

Andrus is good in two categories and it wouldn't surprise me to see him moved out of the #2 hole for someone who gets on base more often. But he's the hardest guy to leave off. I could see keeping him over Marcum.

Please check out my post on Kennedy vs. Lester. Thanks in advance.
