Who should be my keepers?(WHIR)

10 team, 29 man rosters inluding 3 minor league players,auction league with 360 dollar cap, roto league with 6x6 cats with extra cats being OPS and Holds.

We can keep from 0 to 18 players from year to year. Prices of player go up by 5 dollars if kept each year. Which of the following should I keep?

2 more OF positions but I have Boesch who I can't keep for reasons I won't go into and I made some trades in offseason and am short an OF.

My thoughts, keeping in mind the larger salary cap and extra cats. Also assuming these prices are what you'd pay in 2012.

C-Posada-10 - retiring.
C-Martin-10 - In a 2 catcher league with Montero gone, I'd say yes. A $360 league is about 36% inflated over a standard $260, so I'm translating that 10 down to about $6-$7.
1B-Morneau-34 - Just too much for a guy with never-ending post-concussion stuff. For $10 less, maybe. Maybe...
2B-Cano-35 - No question. ;-D
3B-Figgins-21 - Not in a million years.
SS-Andrus-10 - Can't beat the price ;-D
CI-Reynolds-32 - Very tough. You need a 3B and power, so I'd be very tempted even though you're probably overpaying. You know your league; if you can get him for less at auction, do that.
MI-Peralta-16 - I just don't buy the AVG. There are plenty of mid-tier 2B that could plug into this spot.
OF-Pie-10 - I don't think so.
OF-BJ Upton-25 - Not thrilled with it, but in context (lack of OF, bigger salary cap) it makes sense. ;-D
OF-Rivera-10 - Nah.
2 more OF positions but I have Boesch who I can't keep for reasons I won't go into and I made some trades in offseason and am short an OF.
UTI-Dunn-36 - No way. If you want to roll the dice you should be able to get him back for a lot less.
Minors- Rowell - Unless I'm totally spacing I have no idea who this is.

P-Britton-1 - For a buck, why not?
P-Buerhle-1 - See above.
P-Feliz-15 - I would roll the dice at that price, which is basically like $10-$11 in a standard league.
P-Fuentes-7 - Nope.
P-Felix-45 - I can't imagine spending more than $40 on a pitcher no matter how good.
P-Matusz-1 - Solid lottery ticket.
P-Price-15 - Easily your best value. ;-D ;-D ;-D
P-Rauch-10 - Nah.
P-Rpzencski - $$ cost? If he's a buck I might take a shot. Could be a good source of holds.
BN-Baker-14 - Not happening at that price.
BN-Joba-25 - No way.
Minors-Cortes-1 - Dan Cortes? I'd let him go and pick up someone with way more upside for a minors slot. His ceiling is an inconsistent 8th inning guy,
Minors-Crosby-1 - Not a fan, but he's got the talent to be a solid no. 3.

I agree with urban completely... At first glance i only thought price, but the 360 bucks inflates prices...
