Weaver, Lawrie and Granderson are the best three with really no question. Yes Lawrie is young but he has the potential to be as good as about anyone in the league and I wouldn't let that go back in the draft.

As for your last keeper, I would probably take ARod as he has the ability to have a really good year and his downside is minimal. Asdrubal upside is last years number but has a much lower floor and I really can't see him maxing out his value again this year. Youk has good upside as well if he can stay healthy but I think I would put my money on Arod than Youk.

I would rather keep all these players than let Weaver go and try and get him back in the draft. If Weaver would still be available, so would any of the other players and there is always the chance there is someone better. Take the best players period and Weaver is one of your best players and could be argued that he is your best keeper.

[quote="ensanimal
My 4 would be....

Granderson
Lawrie
As. Cabrera
Weaver

If you go bat over Weaver, I would go with Youkilis, offers better flexibility having 1B/3B.[/quote]
I like the youth and positions of these 4 choices as well. It is very likely Youk and/or A Rod has a better year than Lawrie or Asdrubal but I'd hate to guess which and think these 4 have the best chance to be keepers again next season.
