Agree 100%. With so few being kept, you will have ample opportunity to draft back all of those youngsters you want. You have to keep your 3 best guys and those are Hamilton, Reyes, and Felix.

Why are you not sold on Reyes and Hamilton?

Reyes, Lawrie, Felix Hernandez

I'd love having a good solid SS in his prime years, a stud young 3b for years to come and one of the best arms in the game.

Part of my hesitation with both those guys is the injury history...they're lights out when they play, but I almost have to assume both of them are going to miss a month of the season.

This is just a snake draft, not an auction league.

Don't get me wrong, both are excellent players and if I were a manager I'd love to have them. I know they aren't playing the same positions, but Hosmer is going to give you similar HR, R, and BA with more SB and less RBI (could get closer this season) then Hamilton. Reyes just reminds me of Rollins with the injury bug. He'll still give you BA, SB, and R but very little HR and RBI and lord only knows when he'll be out of the lineup for a few months.

If he were to keep a 1B, it should be Goldschmidt and not Hosmer, IMO.

But I would go Reyes/Hamilton/Felix. These are your 3 best players and with so few keepers it's important to stick to that.

I would go with Hamilton, Felix and Bumgarner for your keepers. It gives you two established players as well as a young up and coming pitcher.
