I would keep the following in this order-

1) Gonzo Round 5 - 1st round talent at a 5th round pick ;-D
2) Pedroia Round 8 - 2nd round talent at an 8th round pick ;-D
3) Garza Round 16 - Should have a HUGE 2012 campaign :-D
4) Carlos Santana Round 25 - At round 25, this is too good to pass up. I imagine you can keep this guy forever with the price tag (and inflation)
5) Ian Kennedy Round 15 - I like Kennedy and think he can post top 15 SP numbers in 2012. At round 15, this is a bargain. Especially with IP as a category
6) Heyward Round 20 - Good value here, but read below-

The only problem with this list is that you are throwing a lot of talent back into the draft (Braun, Kinsler, Bruce). And if a lot of other players have rounds like Gonzo or Dustin (good players at bargain prices), then I doubt there is going to be much talent in the draft. So if you don't think you can get a Braun or Kinsler type of player back in the first 1-3 rounds, I would probably cut Heyward for one of them.

Pedroia Rd 8
Bumgarner Rd 14
Carlos Santana Rd 25
AGone Rd 5

I don't think those four are up for debate. I don't think people realize just how good Bumgarner was last year. To me, 14th round is a no-brainer.

The other two:

Garza Round 16 - that's very good value. I'm not sure he'll have a "monster" 2012 but I'd certainly take the risk with a 16th round pick.

Tough choice for the last one. Bruce in Round 8 is pretty solid, but Heyward Rd 20 is so "low risk high reward" I probably can't pass it up. Pineda, also, although I would not want to keep 3 pitchers out of 6 keepers.

Braun is a special case. Do the rounds go up each year? Like, would you have to throw him back next year no matter what? Because there's nothing wrong* with giving up a 1st round pick for Braun if you can keep him forever and ever. (*probably)

I have to agree with Cohorts. I would keep an eye on what happens with Braun though. If he wins his case then he is worth spending a first round pick on because I don't think there will be anyone better available.

He won't win his case. The testing program states that even if a player ingests something that is improperly labeled it is still in violation. The appealing process is merely to try and save face. Unless he can prove that someone forcibly drugged him, I can't envision him winning his appeal.

Looks like I am alone in not picking AGon. Here is why I chose Pineda over AGon. I just worry AGon won't have a stud year like others think. At fifth round, he is decent value, but Pineda at 25th is too good to pass up, imo.
