I really like the players in bold. I feel they have good value, especially Dustin, Cruz, Beachy, and Shields. I think Gonzo at $37 is a good price, as is Victorino at $17.

The last keeper spot is tough. Pujols is a stud, but overpriced IMO. Alexi should produce, but his price tag may be a bit high as well. I might take a gamble on Chacin or Zimmerman for the last spot. If not one of them, you have a few $1 guys with good upside.

Those 5 are for sure. That leaves you with 2 spots. I agree that at $59, Pujols is overpriced. I'd be tempted to keep him anyway, but I value flexibility too much. Alexei Ramirez at $19 is decent but not exciting. Melky Cabrera $1 will return value (I don't think he'll repeat last year, but he won't collapse either). Shane Victorino for $17 is also not a bad choice. Never been a huge fan of him, but that's a decent price for him. Jason Kipnis $1 - since you start a MI as well as 2B, I'm all over this one. If things break the right way, he could end up on your roster for a long time. Lucas Duda at $1 seems like a perfect fit for your CI spot. I'd take those two and give yourself more to spend in the draft. Players going up $3/year means there should always be some high-end talent to spend your money on.

P Brandon Beachy $1

BN Jason Kipnis $1

These are my top 6 options. For the last spot, it would depend on how you feel the auction may go, and if you want more money available to be a bigger player. I really like Zimmerman, and for $15 he's not a bad price. What would he go for though in your auction? How crazy do some of the prices start to get? If you think he can be had back for cheaper, I might just keep either Melky or Motte. I don't think Melky repeats, but for $1, he's not a bad 4th OF. Motte for a $1 if he's closing would be good value.

I would probably end up keeping one of those two $1 guys so I could have more $ in the auction, and if they do well again this season, they could be cheap options/tradeable parts come the end of this season.

I think the 5 above are definite. You've got a lot of great $1 options. Final two spots likely comes down to the following three players. I go with Kipnis because of the MI spot and then it's a toss up between Melky and Duda. Melky obviously isn't going to repeat last year's performance, but he's almost guaranteed to return more than $1. Duda has some pop and they are moving the fences in. I think it all comes down to PT of Duda. If it looks like he is going to get 500+AB's then I take his power upside.

Worley, Kipnis, and Beachy at a buck a piece seems to be automatic. I would keep Pedroia as well seems how 2b is pretty thin. Alexei Ramirez, Gonzalez and Zimmerman would round out my seven.
