Once we know # of teams in league you'll get a better answer, but it looks to me like you'd be better off keeping very few of these and hope to get better players in next years draft

+1, as it stands, that team is very ugly.

Tough...only a few sure fire guys...the rest is really just trying to bank on the best chance for upside. Given the size of your league...I assume most of the top ranked rookies are taken? If you know you are out...and there are some solid prospects on the WW...I would consider taking the gamble on them. Can you pick up guys in the Minors projected to debut next year? What about guys on the DL for the season? Is Pineda available? or did his owner hang onto him?

Given what you have said in OP...I would probably go with the following

C.Yadier Molina
1B OF..Nick Swisher
2b.Aaron Hill
3b.Mike Olt
SS. Josh Rutlidge
1B 2B OF.Howie Kendrick
of.Matt Holliday
of.David Murphy
of.Josh Willingham

Starting Pitchers
Jaime Garcia
Paul Malhom
Rick Porcello

Thanks for the help on mine ;-D

I agree with this except I would throw Porcello back and keep Garrett Jones. The roster is pretty ugly.
