I can keep 0-18 players. I think after analyzing my team that I would keep about 12 players but I am curious to see who you guys think I should keep. Thanks again guys!
Assuming the trade is Ichiro, Viciedo, and Drabek for Reynolds, Baker, and Martin, and looking at your roster, and working with a $360 salary cap, I'd probably keep:
C-J. Molina($10) - too expensive
C-Posada($10) - retiring
1B-Morneau($34) - too risky for the price; have heard he's not over his concussion.
2B-Cano($30) - Yep.
SS-Andrus($10) - Great price, AL SS is killer. Must-keep.
3B-Figgins($21) - As a Mariners fan, let me just say HAHAHAHAHAH
CI-Kouz($10) - Just do not see the upside even in AL-only with this deep a bench.
MI-Perralta($16) - This one's tough. I think the AVG will come down but the power is real. $16 is just about right.
OF-Boesch($10) - Good upside, will hit third and settle into RF; if he can get over his second half woes...
OF-Pie($10) - Don't see it.
OF-Ichiro($22) - Traded
OF-BJ Upton($25) - I don't hate that price.
UTI-Dunn($36) - Crazy expensive; not sure I could do it. Big risk.
P-Britton($1) - Cheap, young, and talented. Yep.
P-Buehrle($1) - Traded to NL.
P-Feliz($10) - Yeah. Might have bumpy road as a starter but upside is worth it.
P-Fuentes($7) - BLeh.
P-Felix($45) - Now this is tough. Even with a $360 budget this is expensive. One of the best, if not the best pitcher in the AL. How much more would he go for at auction? Need a handle on your league. I'd be tempted, though.
P-Matusz($1) - Cheap, young, more talented.
P-Price($10) - Snap call.
P-Rzepcynski($3) - Cardinal, no?
P-Rauch($10) - moved to the NL
DL-Joba($20) - No.
